The prospect of witnessing two of Bollywood’s most celebrated icons, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, sharing the silver screen is nothing short of a cinematic dream come true. After the unprecedented success of SRK’s ‘Pathaan’, which shattered box office records and infused new life into a film industry reeling from a prolonged dry spell, hopes are soaring high with the upcoming Yash Raj spy-thriller ‘Tiger Vs Pathaan’.
The mere mention of ‘Tiger Vs Pathaan’ has sent fans into a frenzy of anticipation, with their imaginations running wild about the potential plot, release date, and all other minute details. Although answers to these burning questions remain elusive, a recent budget update is sure to leave jaws dropped and hearts racing with excitement. Brace yourselves, for the financial investment in this much-awaited cinematic extravaganza, will simply astound you!
As per the latest report, the Siddharth Anand helmed ‘Tiger Vs Pathaan’ is rumoured to be one of the most extravagantly budgeted films in Bollywood, with a whopping estimate of Rs. 300 crores allocated for its production costs alone. However, this staggering figure does not account for the actors’ remuneration, reports Bollywood Hungama. If the rumours are to be believed, the budget of the film will surpass that of both ‘Pathaan’ and ‘Tiger 3’.
A reliable source affirmed, “This figure is absolutely justified. Pathaan collected more than Rs. 1000 crores at the box office worldwide and also earned a decent moolah through the sale of television and digital rights. Tiger vs Pathaan, obviously, has all the chances of earning more than Pathaan. Moreover, Aditya Chopra and Siddharth Anand will have to scale up the action, VFX, etc and all this requires money. There’s no doubt that Tiger vs Pathaan will truly be a grand cinematic experience.”

If the rumours are to be believed, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have chosen to forego a fixed fee in favour of a share in the profits of their upcoming collaboration, ‘Tiger Vs Pathaan’. This strategic decision means that the two megastars stand to reap immense benefits if the movie manages to surpass the monumental milestone of Rs. 1000 crores at the box office, once again showcasing their unwavering faith in the project’s potential.
While the exact plot of ‘Tiger Vs Pathaan’ remains shrouded in mystery, the title itself hints at a titanic clash between Bollywood’s two biggest icons, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. YRF’s recent announcement that the film is scheduled for release in 2025 has only fueled fans’ anticipation. As a part of the Yash Raj Spy Universe, ‘Tiger Vs Pathaan’ will join the ranks of box office hits such as ‘Tiger’ and ‘War’, as well as the recently released blockbuster, ‘Pathaan’. With ‘War 2’ and ‘Tiger 3’ also in the pipeline, ‘Tiger Vs Pathaan’ will mark the seventh installment in this prestigious franchise. Fans can also look forward to ‘Tiger 3’, featuring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, set to hit theatres during Diwali 2023.
