It was a decade ago when Ek Tha Tiger released in theatres. At that time, long before Pathan, there was no detective universe in the making. In fact there was no announcement about Tiger becoming a franchise. It was meant to be a cool spy action thriller with just a love story and Kabir Khan cleverly executed the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer. The film took a tremendous opening on Eid and then went on to box office 50 crores trail in the first three days; A very good number in 2012.
Circa 2023 and something much bigger has come out of an idea that was born more than a decade ago. Tiger Zinda Hai happened, followed by War and now with Pathan, the espionage universe has really started taking shape. The kind of boom it has seen at the box office is bigger and better than what one can imagine. while ek tha tiger netted 60.42 crores In his first three days, Pathan has crossed that number 100 croreswhat with 166.75 crores I am coming
Here’s a look at the biggest weekend (or first three days’ numbers) of YRF’s biggest openers:
Pathan- 166.75 crores
Tiger Zinda Hai 114.93 crores
Dhoom 3 – 107.61 crores
Sultan – 105.53 crore
Thugs of Hindostan- 101.75 crores
Warning – 100.15 crores
Ek Tha Tiger – 60.42 crores
fan – 52.35 crores
Jab Tak Hai Jaan , 49.22 crores
Gunday – 43.41 crore
what Siddhartha Anand Directed Pathan has done so to give a very solid platform to the espionage world envisioned by Aditya Chopra. To think, even in Pathan there were only Pathans and Tigers, and Kabir has not yet entered here. Now with Tiger 3 coming, one expects Hrithik Roshan to make an appearance as well. Once that happens, it will be a pretty solid platform for the universe to start taking on gigantic proportions in the years to come.
Note: Box office numbers are based on estimates and various sources. The numbers have not been independently verified by Koimoi.
