Salman Khan’s ‘Tiger 3’ Hit By Cricket World Cup 2023 Final, Drops Massively
Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi’s ‘Tiger 3’ collected just Rs 10.25 crore across all languages. The box office collection took a big hit due to the CWC 2023 final.
‘Tiger 3’, starring Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Emraan Hashmi, had a lot riding on it as fans were hoping for another Rs 500 crore movie from Bollywood. But if the box office trend is anything to go by, it looks like the new Hindi movie will find it difficult to even cross the Rs 300 crore mark. On the eighth day of its release, ‘Tiger 3’ collected just Rs 10.25 crore across all languages. The box office collection took a big hit due to the Cricket World Cup 2023 final played between India and Australia.
On Sunday, ‘Tiger 3’ just barely managed to touch double digits, and the total collection of the film now stands at Rs 229.65 crore, as per industry tracker Sacnilk.
‘Tiger 3’ had an overall occupancy of just 14.75 per cent on Sunday, and the makers would now hope for the collection to increase in the coming days.
With the Cricket World Cup 2023 and Diwali holidays behind it, the real test for ‘Tiger 3’ will begin now, and the coming days will decide the fate of the new Hindi movie at the box office.
‘Tiger 3’ has not been able to record the highest weekend, highest day one figure, or the highest week one figure. But it is Salman Khan’s 17th film to enter the Rs 100 crore club at the box office, and this is the highest for any actor in the history of Indian cinema.
Speaking of ‘Tiger 3’, the new Hindi movie has been directed by Maneesh Sharma. It had opened to mixed reviews. Some of the critics described it as the weakest film in the YRF Spy Universe.
‘Tiger 3’ also features cameos by Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan. The latter appears in the post-credits scene, setting up the events in motion for ‘War 2’, in which he will be sharing the screen with Jr NTR.
For the unversed, the YRF Spy Universe consists of movies such as 'Ek Tha Tiger', 'Tiger Zinda Hai', 'War', 'Pathaan', and now 'Tiger 3'. YRF has two more movies expected to come out -- 'War 2', and 'Tiger vs Pathaan'.
