According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Salman Khan starrer “Race 3” takes the suspense thriller franchise to a whole new level.
No amount of negative reviews of the film could stop audiences from thronging the theatres over the Eid weekend, making Race 3 the second highest weekend opener of 2018 at the box office. On the first day, it collected Rs 27.69 crore, on the second day Rs 36.25 crore and approximately Rs 37 crore on Sunday, taking the film’s first-weekend collection to over Rs 100 crore. The film has collected Rs 106.47 crore within three days of the release and is now looking at another open week to strengthen its position.
Starring Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Saqib Saleem and Bobby Deol alongside Salman, Race 3 is the third film in the Race franchise and opened to poor reviews on June 15. The film is also Salman’s fourth one to cross the Rs 100-crore-mark in three days, after Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.
