Salman Khan’s latest actioner, Tiger 3, is currently staring at a lacklustre performance at the box office on Monday. As per early estimates (shared at 6 pm) by trade tracker Sacnilk, the film will earn over Rs 4.24 crore on its second Monday. On its first Monday, the Maneesh Sharma directorial earned a record-breaking Rs 59.25 crore. The total collection of the third installment in the Tiger franchise in India now stands at Rs 234.14 crore.
Tiger 3 netted Rs 10.50 crore on its eighth day at the box office. The film reached the double-digit figure on Sunday, despite the World Cup final betwee India and Australia on the same day.
A statement shared by the makers on Monday read, “Tiger 3 had to face weeks filled with multiple festivals, fractured holidays, and World Cup tournaments but still went on to prove its mettle at the box office. As the World Cup final match has ended, the film is witnessing a jump in its box office collections and has now reached Rs 376 crore gross worldwide.”
On Monday, the makers also released Tiger 3 song “Ruaan”. The song features Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, and is sung by Arijit Singh with music by Pritam and lyrics by Irshad Kamil.
Tiger 3 stars Emraan Hashmi in the negative role of Aatish Rehman, an ex-ISI agent. The actor recently talked about his approach towards his character and why he didn’t play him like a villain.
“You have to tap into the darker side, but eventually the dynamics are the same. You have to be clear about the vision of the director. You bring in your own ideas for the character’s journey, the nuances and body language, and finally play him like the hero of his own narrative. Don’t play it like a villain because that’s the worst way to approach the antagonist as then it becomes unidimensional,” Emraan Hashmi told PTI in an interview.
Released on November 12, Tiger 3, produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films banner, also featured cameo appearances by Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan and Hrithik Roshan’s Kabir from War franchise.
