Released in 2012, Ek Tha Tiger opened to positive reviews from critics and audiences. It was a fresh change in Salman Khan’s filmography. While making the biggie, director Kabir Khan ensured he didn’t compromise with Salman’s larger-than-life persona while churning out a critically acclaimed spy film. All efforts yielded a blockbuster and cult, with a lifetime of 198 crores at the Indian box office.
Over the years, Ek Tha Tiger has gained a huge fan following, and with Tiger 3 being the third part of the franchise, expectations were sky-high. While the reviews and the audience feedback have been mixed, the film has managed to beat the first part in terms of box office collection in India.
In the first 6 days, Tiger 3 has earned a whopping 201.50 crores (all languages) at the Indian box office, and with this, it has gone past the lifetime of Ek Tha Tiger. It has emerged as the 4th highest-earning film in YRF’s Spy Universe. The first three positions are captured by Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai, and Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff’s War, respectively.
Take a look at the performance of Spy Universe’s films (from highest collection to lowest collection):
- Pathaan – 543.22 crores
- Tiger Zinda Hai- 339.16 crores
