Tiger 3 is also the biggest opener for Salman Khan, as his last best was Bharat, which did Rs 42.30 crore on opening day on Eid, a national holiday.

The opening of Tiger 3, however, is not near the two Shah Rukh Khan openers this year — Pathaan (Rs 57 crore) and Jawan (Rs 75 crore) but with a record-breaking start at the box office despite a weak day, Tiger 3 has now set itself up to enjoy the long Diwali holiday run.

The trade is expecting the film to score more than Rs 120 crore on Monday and Tuesday, and are hoping that the film would record a three-day total in the north of Rs 165 crore.

The third installment of the hugely successful franchise, Tiger 3 also stars Katrina Kaif and sees Emran Hashmi as an antagonist. The actioner is part of Yash Raj Films’ spy-universe, which also features Hrithik Roshan’s War and superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan.
