Diwali is really happening! On the first day of Jyoti Parv, the roar of 'Tiger 3' is surprising every Bollywood. People are saying that this film will create new records of earnings. The year 2023 is a year of records for the cinema industry. At the beginning of the year, Shahrukh Khan's 'Pathan' broke old records... The audience who had turned away from the cinema started returning back to the cinema houses.' Sunny Deol's film 'Gadar 2', which gave competition to 'Pathan' in earnings, set new records. As soon as the first quarter of the year was over, Akshay Kumar's film 'OMG 2' was released and then the discussion started with the film 'Jawaan'. There is a hope that 'Dunki', the third film of the 'Jawaan' star, which has earned Rs. 1150 crores, will fill the coffers of Bollywood in the same way, this hope is getting firmly established in the minds of the people.
Meanwhile, let us discuss the earnings collection of South films 'Jailor' and 'Leo', Salman Khan's new film 'Tiger 3', the third installment of the Tiger franchise, has caught everyone's attention at the box office window. The magic of Salman Khan's name is surprising everyone by giving advance booking figures. Wondering what records this film, which is launching on Diwali, will create in earnings, has begun. That is, every film has moved forward breaking the record of the previous film in terms of success. The sequel of the previous films i.e. Part 2 is also not lagging behind. The success of 'Gadar 2', 'OMG 2', and 'Dream Girl 2' shows that our cinema is not moving away from its past, rather these films are also not lagging behind in filling the lamps of Diwali.
It is said that cinema repeats itself. Cinema in its vast form was never before as it is today. Big screen multiplex, small screen TV, OTT platforms, social media platforms... all these did not exist earlier, and films used to be played then. These days when there is a rush of entertainment sources, cinema is playing. Indian cinema is booming in this time of pandemic and global inflation. In short, Diwali is filled with happiness.
