The recently released action-spy-thriller 'Tiger 3', starring Bollywood icon Salman Khan, has hit a rough patch at the box office despite initial high hopes.
Initially slated for a Diwali release, the film encountered unexpected hurdles as its collections dipped significantly following an impressive opening. The World Cup, coupled with Team India's stellar performance in the tournament, particularly leading up to the final match, diverted audience attention away from the film.
According to industry tracker Sacnilk, the film, which hit theaters on November 12, managed to earn Rs 10.5 crore on its Day 8. However, the World Cup final between India and Australia on the same day took a toll on the film, causing a notable 43.2 per cent drop in collections compared to its Saturday figures.
Despite the initial aspirations, the film's prospects at the box office seem bleak. The producers, expecting a successful run akin to 'Pathaan' (a YRF production) and 'Jawan' (distributed by YRF and starring Shah Rukh Khan), now face the possibility of substantial losses.
For the film to break even and cover its Rs 300 crore investment, it needs to rake in Rs 600 crore. However, with the current box office figures sitting at Rs 224.5 crore, the task of amassing an additional Rs 375 crore in the near future seems challenging. This predicament puts the film's financial success in jeopardy.
