Tiger 3 has delivered Salman Khan’s biggest Day 3 earnings with a score of Rs 43.50 crore on Tuesday, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh. This brings Tiger 3‘s total at the domestic box office to Rs 144.50 crore. It is currently Bollywood’s third biggest film of the year – earnings till Day 3 calculated – after Jawan and Pathaan. As with most of this year’s hit films, ticket sales for Tiger 3 are being powered by the mass circuits. While the film displayed what Mr Adarsh described as “excellent hold” on its third day, fourth day earnings are likely to suffer because of the India vs New Zealand cricket match.
Tiger 3, the third entry in the blockbuster spy franchise starring Salman Khan, also features Katrina Kaf – both actors reprise their roles from the previous two films, Tiger and Zoya. Emraan Hashmi plays the antagonist. Tiger 3 is also set in the YRF Spy Universe and is the fifth film in the chronology.
“Salman Khan scores his biggest 3-day total with Tiger 3. Tiger 3 shows excellent hold on Day 3. Mass circuits are clearly calling the shots. Sunday 43 cr, Monday 58 cr, Tuesday 43.50 cr. Total: Rs 144.50 cr. India biz. Hindi version. National chains were down 5.48% [vis-à-vis Sun], while single screens / mass centres performed better than Sun,” posted Taran Adarsh. He added a list of the year’s top three Hindi earners and the regional total.

Sharing details about the film’s collections on day 1 and day 2, Taran Adarsh shared on X [ formerly Twitter]: “Tiger hits century in 2 days. Tiger 3 hits the ball out of the park on Day 2 (Mon). The 2-day total now crosses ₹ 100 cr mark, it’s the third Hindi film (in 2023) to hit a century in 2 days/48 hours: Pathaan (Jan), Jawan (Sept) and now Tiger 3 (Nov). Tiger 3 went on an overdrive on Day 2 in Delhi, UP, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh. The film had underperformed in some circuits on Day 1, but the extraordinary growth on Day 2 has brought the film back on track. Tiger 3 Sunday 43 cr, Monday 58 cr. Total: ₹ 101 cr. India biz. Hindi version.”

Explaining that Tiger 3 not only gave Salman Khan his biggest opening but also became the “highest opener on Diwali Day” in Bollywood, Taran Adarsh said, “While no major Hindi film has released on Diwali Day in more than a decade (film biz is severely impacted since people are busy with festivities and Laxmi Puja), Tiger 3 emerges a game changer. Decimates all BO records for Diwali Day. Hold on, not only is Tiger 3 the highest opener on Diwali Day, but also Salman Khan’s biggest opener ever (yes, you read that right!). Sunday ₹ 43 cr. India biz. Hindi version. Box office,” adding more details about the day 1 earnings.
