Tiger 3 Roars in Advance Bookings: Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif Film Sells Over 3 Lakh Tickets for Opening Day



As the highly anticipated Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer, Tiger 3, gears up for its release on Laxmi Pooja Day, the film has already set a promising tone with robust advance bookings. Closing the pre-release ticket sales with an impressive 3.03 lakh tickets sold for the opening day, Tiger 3 ranks as the third-highest in advance bookings this year, trailing behind Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan and Pathaan.

The last day witnessed a brisk movement in ticket sales, with over 1 lakh tickets being snapped up in the final 18 hours alone. Despite the unconventional release on Laxmi Pooja Day, traditionally not considered a big day for the box office, Tiger 3’s advance bookings in top national chains have shown encouraging numbers.
The film’s appeal extends beyond national chains, with promising advances in non-national chains and single screens. The overall pre-release buzz suggests an opening collection of over Rs 30 crores nett, contingent on the on-the-day momentum. As the day progresses, ticket sales may slow down, only to pick up the next day with the onset of Diwali festivities.
Tiger 3 is a pivotal part of YRF’s Spy Universe, renowned for its 100 percent blockbuster track record. The burning question remains: Can Tiger 3 uphold the blockbuster tradition set by Yash Raj Films in the spy genre?
Internationally, Tiger 3 aims for a collection of around 5 million dollars in its two-day opening frame, with a projected worldwide opening of Rs 80 crores. Sunday alone is expected to contribute Rs 60 crores to this staggering figure. While strong reports can set the stage for continued success, the film faces a potential roadblock in the form of critical matches in the later stages of the ICC Cricket World Cup.
The top three national chains’ advance bookings for day 1 in 2023 rank as follows:
1. Jawan: 5.57L tickets sold
2. Pathaan: 5.56L tickets sold
3. Tiger 3: 3.03L tickets sold
Tiger 3 is poised to captivate audiences with its narrative that follows the events of Tiger Zinda Hai, War, and Pathaan. Avinash Singh Rathore, alias “Tiger,” embarks on a life-threatening crusade to clear his and his family’s name.
