Salman Khan's 'Tiger 3' to now release on Diwali 2023
Salman Khan's Tiger 3 is running behind schedule! The third installment of the uber-successful Yash Raj Films' Tiger franchise, the action-thriller was initially slated to release on April 21, 2023, to commemorate the festival of Eid. However, in a surprising development, the film's release date has now been pushed to Diwali 2023! The Maneesh Sharma directorial co-stars Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi.
Why does this story matter?
- Ek Tha Tiger (2012), directed by Kabir Khan, was one of the most successful outings of Khan's career and a bonafide commercial blockbuster.
- This was followed by Tiger Zinda Hai which was released in 2017 and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
- It also laid the foundation of YRF's ever-expanding spy universe which now includes War, the Hrithik Roshan-starrer's sequel, and SRK's Pathaan.
Along with the update, Khan dropped a poster, too
Khan shared the update on Saturday morning. He wrote, "Tiger has a new date... Diwali 2023 it is! Celebrate #Tiger3 with #YRF50 only on a big screen near you. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu." He also dropped a new poster that showed most of his face covered with a mask. Within a few minutes of the update, #Tiger3 began trending on Twitter.
