In its first nine days, Bollywood’s action thriller Tiger 3, directed by Maneesh Sharma, earned slightly over Rs 225 crores in Hindi. In lead roles, the film features Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Emraan Hashmi.
Salman Khan’s action film beats ”The Kerala Story” and emerged as the fourth highest-grosser of 2023 in Hindi on its ninth day at the box office. With around Rs 6.5 – 7 crores net collections on its second Monday, the Salman Khan actioner three now stands at Rs 225.25 crores net. The hold on the second Monday was good because of a holiday in parts of the country, and what needs to be seen is how it holds in the days before Animal and Sam Bahadur take away performing screens.
Tiger 3 crossed the collections of The Kerala Story early on Monday, and now there are only three films, Pathaan, Gadar 2, and Jawan, ahead of it among the Hindi films released this year. There are a couple of potential films about to release in December, in the form of Animal and Dunki, and these are the only films that can change the rank of Tiger 3 from 4th to 5th or maybe even 6th.
The film earned Rs 374 crore globally and aims to earn Rs 450 crore, which is quite challenging. Trade analysts say the film will reach the target within two days.
