Preliminary estimates suggest that the tally from a lot of places is still outstanding, but it seems like the YRF Spy Universe Film starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif has had a phenomenal international opening that might have easily topped Rs 100 crore if it had been released on a typical Friday. Without the restrictions in Oman and Qatar, first-day international sales could have been somewhat stronger. Due to an irregular release schedule, belt sales throughout the globe will dip today, only to rebound on Friday as the weekend draws near.
The box office total of Tiger Zinda Hai was USD 20.30 million, and the primary objective for Tiger 3 will be to surpass that number in the foreign markets to become the most successful picture in the Tiger series outside of India.
The two Shah Rukh Khan-starrer flicks – Pathaan and Jawan, were released earlier this year on January 25 and September 7, respectively, and the film has recorded the highest worldwide opening weekend of all time for a Hindi language film.
