Salaar US box office
Meanwhile, Salaar has also made a box office record in the US ahead of its release. Salaar has minted $1.81 million+ and sold over 70,000 tickets in the States. The pan-India film is not releasing in IMAX format in the US like earlier but still, the film is getting a good response from the audience in North America. Surely, the film is on track to become one of the biggest hits of 2023 in the US and India.
The movie has become the highest USA premiere grosser for any Indian film in 2023, leaving behind the likes of Leo, Jailer, Jawan and Animal. With these huge figures, Salaar is poised to have not just a huge opening in the US but the North American market may turn out to be a major contributor to its global box office business.
