New Delhi:

Tiger 3, the new entry in Salman Khan's blockbuster spy franchise, made its 100 crores in just two days. The film "went into overdrive" on Monday in several circuits, collecting Rs 58 crore at the box office, reports trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The current box office total is Rs 101 crore at the domestic box office. Tiger 3 is the third Hindi film this year to cross the 100 crore mark in two days – the other two in this select club are Shah Rukh Khan's releases Pathaan and Jawan. Tiger 3, starring Katrina Kaif, released on Diwali, the only Hindi film to have done so in a decade. Salman and Katrina reprise their roles as spies Avinash Singh Rathore or Tiger and Zoya.

"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 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: Rs 101 cr. India biz. Hindi version," posted Taran Adarsh. He added the regional score as well.

Tiger 3 set two records on Day 1 - it gave Salman Khan his biggest opening as well as set a Diwali record. As per Taran Adarsh, in addition to giving Salman Khan his biggest opening yet, Tiger 3 is also the “highest opener on Diwali Day” in Bollywood. Calling the film a “game changer”, Taran Adarsh shared, “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.”

With this, Salman Khan's top five openers are now Tiger 3, Bharat, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.

Taran Adarsh also offered details of the first-day earnings of the other two films in the Tiger franchise – Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai. Take a look:

About the film, NDTV's Saibal Chatterjee wrote, “Since the spies are here to stay, as are the explosions, gunfights and hand-to-hand combats that come with the territory, we might as well get used to it. Tiger 3 might help. It is a film that, for the most part, stays on the rails.” 

In addition to the Tiger franchise, other films in the YRF Spy Universe include Pathaan led by Shah Rukh Khan and War headlined by Hrithik Roshan.
