Salman Khan has a blockbuster, YRF actioner jumps past Rs 200 crore

Salman Khan's comeback appears to be complete, with the latest instalment in YRF's Spy Universe shooting past the Rs 200 crore mark in just the first three days. The action-thriller, a part of the YRF Spy Universe of interconnected films, made an estimated Rs 42 crore, netted a domestic total of Rs 146 crore, according to industry trackers. This is Salman’s 17th movie to cross the Rs 100 crore nett mark.

The film opened on Sunday to coincide with the Diwali holiday, and made Rs 44 crore. It showed bumper growth on day two of release, when it made Rs 58 crore. Globally, the film has made more than Rs 220 crore, which puts it on track to overtake Ek Tha Tiger’s Rs 330 crore global gross just over a decade ago. By comparison, 2017’s Tiger Zinda Hai grossed Rs 565 crore.

Tiger 3 isn’t proving to be as popular in South Indian regions as Shah Rukh Khan’s two 2023 hits, Pathaan and Jawan. Both movies concluded their global runs with over Rs 1000 crore, a benchmark that Salman has come close to breaching, but has never actually crossed. His highest-grossing film worldwide remains Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which made over Rs 900 crore. After overtaking the first Tiger’s lifetime haul, Tiger 3 will aim to surpass the Rs 475 global gross posted by Hrithik Roshan’s War.

Starring Salman and Katrina Kaif, Tiger 3 is directed by Maneesh Sharma, and is the fifth instalment in YRF’s shared universe of spy films. The franchise also includes Pathaan and War. Both Shah Rukh and Hrithik have appeared for cameos in Tiger 3, setting up future instalments.

Deepika Padukone says she doesn’t mind speaking her mind despite trolling

In a new interview, Deepika Padukone mentioned that she is "not afraid" of speaking her mind and having a different opinion from others. She has had an illustrious career in the Hindi film industry and continues to entertain the audience with her charm and acting talent. However, the actor has also been embroiled in controversies over the years. One was her attending a students’ protest against the amended Citizenship Act at Jawaharlal Nehru University in January 2020. In her latest interview, Deepika said that she is “not afraid” of speaking her mind and having a different opinion from others.

She told Vogue, “When I feel really strongly or passionately about something, I don’t think twice about expressing myself. I’ve grown to become this person where I’m not afraid of speaking my truth or owning up to mistakes. I’m not afraid of saying sorry.”

Deepika was massively trolled around the release of her film Padmavat.  She received political backlash for the film. Certain scenes of the film were changed and the film’s name was altered to Padmavat from Padmavati after a fringe outfit claimed it disrespected the sentiments of Rajputs. But, Deepika remained unfazed by the protests.

Priyanshu Painyuli Shares His Experience Of Shooting for the Film Pippa

Priyanshu Painyuli, known for his outstanding performances in "Charlie Chopra and the Mystery of Solang Valley," “Mirzapur,” “Extraction,” and "Bhavesh Joshi," is set again with the film "Pippa”. Co-starring with him are Ishaan Khatter and Mrunal Thakur in the film, which is a biographical war drama. Priyanshu Painyuli takes on the role of Major Ram Mehta, an army officer, who played a crucial role in the 1971 Indo-Pak war.

The actor shared his sentiments saying, “Being from an army background, I have always been in awe of the selflessness and courage of our soldiers, who risk everything to defend our nation. In a way, I felt I was doing my small bit in contributing as an Indian by using my craft and bringing to life a soldier who walked straight into enemy territory, without worrying about his own life to help others in their fight for liberation. Raja Menon has recreated a piece of history through this movie and I am sure audiences worldwide will appreciate this wartime drama for its hard-hitting story and the message that it aims to deliver.”

The actor has had a busy shooting for the much-awaited series “Paan Parda Zarda,” and also the series “Shehar Lakhot.”
