The Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger 3 is headed for a historic start at the box office in India. Despite a release on Diwali Day, which is considered to be the weakest day of the year for the film business, Tiger 3 will be looking at a start of Rs. 35 to 40 crores. According to advance booking trends, the action-packed espionage has sold 7 lakh plus tickets for the opening day alone across the country.
On the collections front, the film has clocked total collections of Rs. 18 crore already before a single show rolls out. The final advance by mid-night will be in the north of Rs. 20 crores, which is historic for a Laxmi Pooja Day release. Interestingly, Tiger 3 will become the biggest Diwali Day of all time even before a single show rolls out i.e. the advance booking of Tiger 3 for Diwali day will be higher than the Diwali day collection of previous record holders – Krrish 3, Ra. One and Housefull 4.
The opening day of Tiger 3 will better the previous record holder by a margin of 75 to 100 percent, which speaks volumes about the craze of Salmania in the market. Talking of National Chain advance booking, Tiger 3 is set to hit 2.80 Lakh to 3.00 Lakh ticket sales in PVR, Inox, and Cinepolis, which will be in the same range as Gadar 2 and Brahmastra.
All the scenarios look bright for Tiger 3 at the moment and now it’s all about the content to land in the right direction, which most certainly will as per the inside reports.
