Box Office Clash: Fighter vs. Tiger 3 vs. Pathaan – Day 1 Advance Booking Analysis Reveals Varied Performances
Deepika Padukone is gearing up for her much-anticipated return to the big screen with the release of Fighter on Republic Day. As we recall the box office storm created by Pathaan, co-starring Shah Rukh Khan, last year, the current scenario doesn’t paint a similar picture for Fighter, featuring Hrithik Roshan. Let’s delve into the day 1 advance booking updates and make a detailed comparison, including Tiger 3.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, who also helmed Pathaan, Fighter marks his second collaboration with Hrithik Roshan after the blockbuster War. With such big names associated, one would expect the pre-release buzz to be substantial. However, the advance booking sales for Fighter have been somewhat underwhelming thus far.
Comparison with Pathaan and Tiger 3 Advance Booking (2 Days To Go):
When compared to the advance booking numbers of Pathaan and Tiger 3, both action-packed releases from 2023, Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone’s Fighter falls short of expectations.
During the same timeframe, Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan achieved an advance booking collection of 21 crores, slightly surpassing 6X of Fighter’s current earnings.
Salman Khan’s Tiger 3 also exceeded expectations with pre-booking sales reaching about 12.30 crores by this stage.
Insights on Fighter:
Apart from Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan, Fighter boasts a star-studded cast including Anil Kapoor, Karan Singh Grover, Akshay Oberoi, Sanjeeda Sheikh, and Ashutosh Rana, among others.
Produced by Viacom18 Studios and Marflix Pictures, Fighter is slated for a theatrical release on January 25, 2024.
