Salman Khan‘s Tiger 3 is one of the most awaited films of the year. As per a new report by The Wrap, the action thriller is set to receive more Imax releases instead of The Marvels, which is opening on November 10. All 23 Imax theaters in India will be allotted to Tiger 3, also starring Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi, which is set to release on Diwali 2023.

Tiger 3 gets all IMAX screens
According to a report by The Wrap, Jatinder Singh, an Indian box office expert and journalist said, “Indian tentpoles have been outperforming a lot of Hollywood blockbusters.” He also gave an earlier example of how this has happened even in 1998, when Titanic released. It was not the top-grossing film of the year, as it was dethroned by Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, which starred Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji.
Tiger 3 is expected to open big on the national holiday of Diwali. Which also means that it is displacing a Hollywood movie, since IMAX cannot rely on Hollywood blockbusters. Both Bollywood and Tollywood (Telugu-language) features have done better than Hollywood blockbusters in India. Both Pathaan and Jawan did far better than what a Captain Marvel or a Spider-Man: No Way Home did at the Indian box office. Meanwhile, Indian films have conversely also been performing exceedingly well outside India. Case in point, the figures of Aamir Khan’s Dangal in Chinese box office and the revenue of RRR in the West and in Japan.
