About Tiger 3
Tiger 3 has minted a gross ₹44.5 crore on day 1 in India. It is the third installment of the Tiger franchise and a part of the YRF Spy Universe with the likes of War and Pathaan. Tiger 3 also stars Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi. An excerpt from the Hindustan Times review read, “While the story and broad plot of Tiger 3 is quite intricate and complex with a new twist and turn waiting to unfold every few minutes, what remains problematic is the inconsistent pace. Especially the first half is quite underwhelming with nothing that leaves you awestruck.”
