Tiger 3, the third instalment of the Tiger franchise has collected  Rs 44.5 crore on day one in India. This surpasses the day one collection for Salman Khan-starrer Bharat, which in 2019, collected ₹42.3 crore. The spy thriller helmed by Maneesh Sharma, released on Diwali, November 12.

The movie is a part of the YRF spy-verse, which includes movies Pathaan and War. The movie also stars Emraan Hashmi and Revathy.

Tiger 3 features cameos by Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan.

In bookings, about three days before its release, Tiger 3 collected Rs 8 crore.
