The Maneesh Sharma directorial Tiger 3 features Emraan Hashmi as the main antagonist and marks his entry into the YRF Spy Universe.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are back as Tiger and Zoya in Tiger 3. They have returned to defend their homeland and their loved ones. The fifth film in the YRF Spy Universe will cover the events that took place after Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), War (2019), and Pathaan (2023). The third instalment in the Tiger franchise is directed by Maneesh Sharma, who has taken the baton from Kabir Khan (Ek Tha Tiger) and Ali Abbas Zafar (Tiger Zinda Hai) and also stars Emraan Hashmi as the main antagonist.
In Tiger 3, after being falsely accused of betraying their country by a vengeful terrorist (Emraan Hashmi), Tiger (Salman Khan) and Zoya (Katrina Kaif) risk their lives on a mission to vindicate themselves and their loved ones.
Tiger 3 is set to have a one-of-a-kind release on Sunday. Yes, the action thriller is set to hit the big screen on November 12, 2023, on the occasion of Diwali 2023. According to the makers, the timeframe complexity of this festive season has motivated YRF to design a deliberate and distinctive release plan. Having the year 2023 as the 'Adhik Maas' makes it difficult to determine when to celebrate. The New Moon, or Amavasya, will occur on Monday, November 13, and the Gujarati New Year, or Govardhan Pooja, will occur on Tuesday, November 14. With Bhai Dooj falling on November 15, the release date of the film will be extended into the all-important Diwali weekend.

Like other YRF Spy Universe films, Tiger 3 will be streaming on Prime Video after its theatrical run.
The production company of Aditya Chopra is the first to create a fictional universe specifically for spy thrillers called YRF Spy Universe. In 2012, Ek Tha Tiger, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, was released as the first film in the universe, and in 2017, Tiger Zinda Hai, the sequel, was released. Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff played significant parts in War, the third film in the franchise, which was released in 2019. Pathaan (2023) is the latest part of the spy universe film series, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham.
All the films in the Spy Universe are blockbusters, with Pathaan being the all-time highest-grossing Hindi film ever. The YRF Spy Universe has grown to become one of the most successful intellectual properties in the Indian film industry. This year's Diwali will see the release of Tiger 3, the third installment in the franchise and the fifth film in the Spy Universe.
