‘Tiger 3’ Day 9 Box Office: Salman Khan Starrer Nears ₹400 Crore Globally, Registers Lowest Single-Day Revenue Yet

Salman Khan's latest action-packed venture, “Tiger 3,” faced its most underwhelming day at the box office on its ninth day since release, accumulating a mere Rs 6.5 crore across all languages in India, as reported by industry tracker Sacnilk. Despite an energetic commencement during Diwali, the movie's performance has been sluggish. Its cumulative domestic earnings have reached Rs 236 crore, with a potential reach of Rs 250 crore. However, breaching the Rs 300 crore mark seems highly improbable. To put it into perspective, YRF's fourth installment in the Spy Universe, “Pathaan,” starring Shah Rukh Khan, raked in over Rs 500 crore domestically during its theatrical run earlier in the year.

Contrasting the success of “Pathaan,” which soared past the Rs 1000 crore mark worldwide, “Tiger 3” struggles to approach even half that figure. Presently, the film inches closer to the Rs 400 crore with approximately Rs 380 crore in its coffers. On its ninth day, “Tiger 3” recorded an overall Hindi language occupancy of a mere 13%, with almost negligible revenue from its Tamil and Telugu releases.

Despite Salman Khan's star power, he faces challenges both in the overseas market, especially in comparison to Shah Rukh Khan, and in captivating audiences in South India. This struggle persists despite repeated endeavors to create crossover hits with films like “Dabangg 3” and “Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan.” With a reported budget of Rs 300 crore, “Tiger 3” is likely to be labeled an underperformer, especially given the high expectations, even with notable cameos from Shah Rukh and Hrithik Roshan.

Salman Khan's last unqualified success was seen in 2017's “Tiger Zinda Hai.”

Additionally, the film's marketing strategy, mimicking that of “Pathaan” by restricting the stars from discussing the movie with the press, was followed by YRF. Yet, beyond marketing , the film seemed to lack enthusiasm from both critics and audiences, contributing significantly to its lukewarm performance. The YRF Spy Universe plans to persist with “War 2,” currently in production, and a prospective crossover film pitting Tiger against Pathaan. However, “Tiger 3” now stands as the second-lowest-grossing installment in the franchise, positioned ahead of “Ek Tha Tiger” but trailing behind “Tiger Zinda Hai,” “War,” and “Pathaan.”
