The much-anticipated Tiger 3 movie, starring Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Emraan Hashmi, is all ready to hit Indian cinemas this Sunday. It’s creating quite a buzz, and people across the nation are eagerly waiting for it. The film aims to become a big success in the YRF Spy Universe. While advance bookings for the first day are going well, it faces stiff competition from Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan. Let’s find out more!
Maneesh Sharma has taken up the responsibility of directing the Tiger film, and the excitement around the movie is at its peak. Everyone expects it to be even bigger than Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan. But being the number one in the Spy Universe won’t be easy.
Pathaan had a lot of hype as Shah Rukh Khan was making a comeback to the big screen after four years. As expected, it created a frenzy when advance bookings started. It received an overwhelming response from National Cinema Chains, multiplexes, and single-screen theaters, with a massive number of pre-sales for the opening day.
For those who don’t know, Pathaan sold tickets worth 32.43 crores all over the country (excluding blocked seats) through advance booking for the first day. This was a historic and surprising figure, especially because it was not released on a holiday.
Tiger 3 has an advantage as it’s releasing on a Sunday, and the Diwali season will add to its appeal. The only concern is that it’s releasing on Laxmi Pujan, a day when fewer families go to the movies. But that shouldn’t be a problem because it’s an event film, and many factors are building excitement among the audience.
As of 7 a.m. today, Tiger 3 has already sold tickets worth 4.35 crores in India and is on the right track to make a huge impact.
It’s too early to say if Tiger 3 will surpass Pathaan’s advance booking numbers for the first day. We’ll have to wait and see how it performs over the next few days, as big movies often slow down in pre-sales after a strong start.
