Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s latest film, Tiger 3, has taken the box office by storm, breaking multiple records and establishing itself as a force to be reckoned with in the world of Hindi cinema. Produced by Yash Raj Films, the action-packed thriller has achieved Salman Khan’s biggest opening day ever and set a new record for the highest-grossing Diwali Day in the history of Hindi cinema.
In its opening weekend, Tiger 3 has grossed an estimated 94 crore ($11.35M) globally, including a whopping 52.5 crore ($6.3M) in India alone. The film’s success is even more impressive considering it officially opened on a Sunday, a day that is typically slow for moviegoing. However, Tiger 3 defied expectations and broke records for the India gross on Diwali Day.
Not only did Tiger 3 make waves in India, but it also had the highest overseas opening day, including paid previews. With its impressive performance abroad, the film solidified its status as a global sensation. This achievement is a testament to the widespread popularity of Bollywood films worldwide.
Tiger 3 is the latest installment in the main Tiger franchise, surpassing the success of its predecessors, Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017). The film is a part of the YRF Spy Universe, which includes other successful spinoffs like War (2019) and Pathaan. Speaking of Pathaan, the film, starring Shah Rukh Khan, is currently the second biggest Hindi-language movie of all time in India. The YRF Spy Universe continues to captivate audiences with its thrilling storylines and star-studded cast.
In addition to its record-breaking debut, Tiger 3 achieved the third-best start of the year in the Indian market for a Hindi movie, behind Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan and Pathaan. This accomplishment is a testament to the film’s immense popularity among Indian audiences.
The film’s success extended beyond the borders of India. In North America, Tiger 3 grossed an estimated $2.25M, securing a spot in the Top 10 for the weekend. The film’s captivating story and stellar performances attracted international moviegoers and contributed to its impressive box office earnings.
Directed by Maneesh Sharma, Tiger 3 follows the story of Indian spy Avinash Singh ‘Tiger’ Rathore, who is framed as a traitor and embarks on a dangerous mission to clear his name. The film features an all-star cast including Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Emraan Hashmi. Adding to the excitement, Tiger 3 also includes special appearances by Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan, two of Bollywood’s biggest superstars.
As the holiday season continues, Tiger 3 is expected to continue its successful run at the box office, with numbers predicted to rise. Fans of Bollywood films can look forward to more thrilling action and captivating performances as they flock to theaters to catch this record-breaking blockbuster.
