Tiger-3 May Have To Face Loss: If Released On Friday, The Film Would Have Taken An Opening Of ₹ 60 Crores; Know The Opinion Of Trade Experts
Advance booking of the film Tiger-3 has started. So far 1.5 lakh tickets have been sold for the first day. Even before its release, the film had collected approximately Rs 4.2 crore. There are still 6 days left for the film to release, so these figures may increase further.
The film can take an opening of Rs 45 to 50 crores on the first day. However, Tiger-3 may also have to face losses in some ways. The film is releasing on Diwali day (Sunday). According to trade experts, releasing the film on Diwali can prove to be harmful. People celebrate festivals on that day, Lakshmi puja is performed in the evening. In such a situation, watching movies becomes an unnecessary task for people.
If it had been released two days earlier i.e. on Friday, the film could have easily taken an opening of Rs 60 crores. Usually, films are released on Friday only. Due to this, films get the benefit of weekends.
If released on Friday, the film could have taken an opening of Rs 60 crore – Trade Analyst Atul Mohan
Film trade analyst Atul Mohan told Dainik Bhaskar, ‘The makers have taken a very bold decision by releasing the film on Sunday. If released on Friday, the film could have easily taken an opening of more than Rs 60 crores.
Generally, it is seen that there are fewer footfalls on Diwali, and people prefer to celebrate the festival by staying at home rather than going to the theatre. Evening shows drop a bit during Diwali. However, those who want to watch the film will watch the film at any cost.
People’s focus right now is on the World Cup semi-finals and finals.
Atul Mohan further said, ‘I think the film can take an opening of Rs 40 to 45 crores. However, in the future, the film may suffer losses due to the World Cup. At present, cricket fever is prevalent in the entire country.
The semi-final and final matches are about to start now. In such a situation, people’s inclination is still a little in that direction. India has reached the semi-finals of the World Cup. This will be the most discussed topic in the coming week.
Taran Adarsh told why the film is releasing on Diwali
To know the answer to why the film is releasing on Sunday instead of Friday, we spoke to the country’s famous film critic and analyst Taran Adarsh. Taran said, ‘Two days before Diwali, people are busy in preparations, they do not have time to watch movies.
Perhaps thinking this, the makers are releasing the film on Diwali. However, even on the day of Diwali, the shows will remain down from 5 pm to 9 pm. At this time people worship Lakshmi. However, those who have made advance bookings will definitely go to watch the film. Apart from this, people from the non-Hindu community will also definitely go for the film. This can also be a good treat for those who are bachelors or live away from home.
According to the estimates so far, the film is taking an opening of Rs 45 crores. However, if the reviews are good then the film can cross the Rs 50 crore mark on the first day.
Distributor Akshay Rathi said- Tiger-3 can become the biggest film in Hindi film history.
We also spoke to distributor Akshay Rathi on this subject. He said, ‘The way advance booking is being done, the atmosphere created around the film, it is possible that it will become the biggest opener in Hindi film history. It may become the highest-grossing Hindi film.
There is a possibility that this film will break the records of Jawan and Pathan. Considering that Shahrukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan have cameos in the film, the film’s earnings could be historic. No big film wants to clash with it, the film will have a single run in theatres. This is also going to be very beneficial.
