2017 was a year when most big-budget films failed to create an impact at the Box Office. It was also a year where smaller-budget, content-driven films made more impact with filmgoers. Barring Baahubali 2 and Golmaal, no other film was a stupendous success commercially. Until Salman Khan's film, Tiger Zinda Hai released. 

Within three days of its release, the film has entered the esteemed Rs 100 crore club and has earned Rs 114.9 crores. 

The actor's previous release this year- Tubelight- had failed to garner much interest. But Tiger Zinda Hai has not only earned 100 crores but has also broken a few records of previous Salman Khan movies. 

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh called the film 'sensational' as he shared the numbers on Twitter. "#TigerZindaHai is SENSATIONAL on Day 3... East-West-North-South, the biz witnesses REMARKABLE growth... Metros and beyond metros, plexes and single screens - it’s creating HAVOC... Fri 34.10 cr, Sat 35.30 cr, Sun 45.53 cr. Total: ? 114.93 cr. India biz. #TZH(sic)".

The film broke a few records, which were earlier set by Salman himself. "Salman versus Salman - first 3 days...#BajrangiBhaijaan ? 102.60 cr [Fri-Sun] #Sultan ? 105.53 cr [released on Wed; Wed-Fri] #Tubelight ? 64.77 cr [Fri-Sun] #TigerZindaHai ? 114.93 cr [Fri-Sun] #TZH India biz.(sic)"

Incidentally, Tiger Zinda Hai is Khan's 12 film to have entered Rs 100 crore club which is the highest by any Indian actor. "“#TigerZindaHai #TZH is Salman Khan’s 12th film to cross ? 100 cr mark... The HIGHEST by any actor…Highest grosser: #BajrangiBhaijaan [? 320.34 cr] Two films in ? 300 cr Club: #BajrangiBhaijaan [? 320.34 cr] and #Sultan [? 300.45 cr] India biz,” Adarsh tweeted.

The film though has a tough target to achieve before it can declare the venture as profitable. Made at an approximate budget of Rs 150 crore, the film must earn Rs 300 crore to post a profit.
