After facing an almost two year long lull in his career, Prabhas returned with a bang in theatres with his Christmas release, Salaar. The film has wrecked havoc at the box office, and despite its clash with superstar Shah Rukh Khan's Dunki, it emerged unscathed and became one of the highest grossers of 2023.
The film has achieved several milestones ever since it released in theatres, and now, it has added yet another feather to its cap as it triumphed over the total India collection of Salman Khan's spy actioner, Tiger 3.
On its sixth day, Salaar minted around Rs 17 crore at the Indian box office, with most of the revenue being generated in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. With that, the total collection of the film in the nation so far has mounted to Rs 297.40 crore.
With the latest figures, Salaar has now officially beaten Tiger 3, which earned a total of Rs 285.52 crore in India.
Considering the latest trend in numbers as well as the New Year weekend, Salaar will easily breach the Rs 300 crore mark in India as it completes a week in theatres on December 28, Thursday. On the global scale too, the film is inching steadily towards the Rs 500 crore mark.
Besides Prabhas, Salaar also stars Prithviraj Sukumaran, Shruti Haasan, Jagapathi Babu, and others in key roles. It has been directed by KGF fame Prashanth Neel, and the film will have a Part 2 as well.
In the director's own words, Salaar is a story of two friends-turned-foes, complete with some never-seen-before action sequences.
