The Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Emraan Hashmi starrer “Tiger 3” may have witnessed a slight dip in its domestic box office performance, but the international market is proving to be a significant stronghold. Not only has the film outpaced big-ticket releases like Gadar 2, Varisu, and Ponniyin Selvan II overseas, but it has also secured a notable position in the UK’s list of Top Indian Grossers of 2023.
As of the latest update, “Tiger 3” was anticipated to breach the 400 crore club globally, fueled by its Monday collections. While the Indian contribution hovered around 7-8 crores (estimates), the film’s international appeal had amassed an impressive 96 crores gross by day 8, attesting to its widespread popularity.
Trade analyst Nishit Shaw reveals that “Tiger 3” currently holds the 6th spot in the UK’s Top Indian Grossers of 2023. The top position is claimed by “Pathaan,” raking in £4.38 million, followed closely by another Shah Rukh Khan starrer, “Jawan,” securing the second spot with £3.10 million. “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani” takes the third position with £2.37 million, maintaining a considerable lead over “Leo” at #4 with £1.6 million. Rajinikanth’s “Jailer” follows at #5 with earnings of £1.33 million, and “Tiger 3” trails closely at #6, amassing £1.14 million within its initial 8 days in UK theaters.
Noteworthy is the fact that “Tiger 3” has surpassed the likes of “Ponniyin Selvan II,” “Varisu,” “2018,” and “Gadar 2” in the UK box office rankings for 2023, further solidifying its global appeal.
While the film continues to scale impressive heights, the focus now shifts to sustaining its momentum at the box office. With numerous milestones on the horizon, “Tiger 3” seems poised for further success, adding to Salman Khan’s list of achievements. The film has already joined the coveted $3 Million club in North America, marking Salman Khan’s fifth film to achieve this milestone after “Bajrangi Bhaijaan,” “Sultan,” “Tiger Zinda Hai,” and “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.”
“Tiger 3” stands as the fifth installment in the YRF spy universe, uniting Bollywood’s powerhouse trio of Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Hrithik Roshan, making it a pivotal chapter in the cinematic universe.
