Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s spy thriller Tiger 3 had a modest second Monday at the box office, making Rs 6.5 crore as per Sacnilk. The film saw the predicted dip in numbers at the end of last week due to the ICC World Cup final on Sunday and the semi-finals before that. With this, the total domestic box office collection of the film has crossed Rs 230 crore. For the unversed, Tiger 3 is the third film in the Tiger franchise that features Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif as super spies Avinash Singh Rathore aka Tiger and Zoya, respectively. It is also the fifth film in the Yash Raj Spy Universe which also includes blockbusters like Pathaan and War.
On Sunday, Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed that the World Cup final between India and Australia led to a dip at the box office for Tiger 3. “Tiger 3 lost out on a major chunk of biz due to IND vs AUS match. The biz, post noon, got massively dented for this reason. [Week 2] Friday 13 cr, Saturday 18.25 cr, Sunday 10.25 cr. Total: Rs 224.50 cr. India biz. Hindi version,” Taran Adarsh shared.
