The salmon has started! Tiger 3 box office day 1 figures are pouring in fast, and with every ticket booked, things are racing up for Salman Khan fans. This is the time when they will all leave no stone unturned to show together in cinema halls to celebrate Bhai’s spectacular comeback at the box office.
Let’s take a look at the latest & current story of the film compared to the milestones it aims to cross ie Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan & Jawan. Both films managed to breach the 500 crores Mark & Sallu fans are very confident that Tiger 3 will cross the same without any difficulty. But is it possible?
Before diving deep into the possible numbers, keep in mind the day Tiger 3 is being released. Day 1 of Diwali is always thought to be the weakest day for any film as many tend to skip theaters to attend the Lakshmi Pujan. But recently YRF revealed why they chose this day, and they really mean it.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan & Jawan had far more comfortable days than Katrina Kaif’s trio of Salman Khan. At least they had no restrictions on the majority chunk of the audience skipping the watch until the second day. But this year’s Diwali release comes with all those challenges, just like 11 years ago, Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
According to the reported numbers, Salman Khan’s Tiger 3 has surpassed the 500K mark with his ticket reservations for a day and a half still pending. Around 535,000+ tickets have already been sold at the National chains & individual screens across the country.
How does it compare to Jawan and Pathaan?
Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan created havoc upon its release. It was a different situation, which could be the case with Day 2 of Tiger 3 (as it is a national holiday). A day and a half before its release, Atlee’s directorial bag had already bagged around 800,000+ tickets, setting the stage for its big debut.
What about Pathaan?
Shah Rukh Khan who was coming back after Zero, and 4 years later definitely took the buzz to another level. But, YRF refused to release it on January 26, Thursday (a national holiday) and instead went for a Wednesday January 25 release. The numbers haven’t seen much of a difference yet, with around 650,000+ tickets sold a few days before release.
By the time of its release, Pathaan & Jawan had sold over a million tickets; the latter was even reported to have touched the 1.5mn mark, resulting in a historic day 1 figure. Spot bookings today, tomorrow and Sunday will play a key role in laying the foundation for Tiger’s day 1 box office 3.
A million tickets for advance booking of Salman Khan-led Tiger 3 would be a miraculous number considering the day it is releasing. Yes, it might be less than Jawan and probably equal to Pathaan, but if it crosses the million ticket mark, it would only be a hint at the monstrous day 2 figures, which Bollywood will not be ready for for still.
Note: Box office numbers are based on estimates and various sources. The numbers have not been independently verified by Koimoi.
