Superstar Salman Khan’s Race 3 is in no mood to stop as the film is inching closer to Rs 150 crore mark and has collected over Rs 142 crore in just six days in India.
Race 3 starring an ensemble cast opened to negative to mixed reviews from the fans and critics. However, that didn’t stop the film from creating history at the box office as the film shattered all records in the opening weekend and is still trending solid in its first week.
Despite negative reception and trolls, Race 3 had the biggest opening day of 2018 by collecting Rs 29.17 crore and had the second biggest opening weekend after Padmaavat by minting over Rs 106 crore.
Now the film earned Rs 9.25 crore on its sixth day at the box office thus taking the total collections of the film to a staggering Rs 142 crore. It is also being reported that the majority of the film’s collections are coming from single screens.
Trade pundits and industry trackers also expect the film to gross Rs 150 crore on its seventh day. However, the main challenge for the film begins from the second weekend onwards.
Considering the fact that the buzz surrounding Bhaijaan’s latest film is over now, the collections from the beginning of second weekend is crucial as it will determine the film’s lifetime business in India before another anticipated film, Sanju, makes it way to the big screen on June 29.
Yes, Sanju is on the right note with the fans and audiences, who can’t wait for the film to release. And that means less time for Race 3 to continue its record breaking spree. The predicted figures by many business analysts for Race 3 in India is somewhere between Rs 175 crore to Rs 200 crore. So, going by the word of the experts breaking the record of Padmaavat is off the books now.
Nonetheless, Race 3‘s success has been special for many reasons. It became Salman’s 13th consecutive Rs 100 crore film and the fourth overall film to gross Rs 100 crore in the opening weekend. It also became the fastest film of 2018 to collect Rs 100 crore in India.
Directed by Remo D’Souza. Race 3 stars Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem and Daisy Shah. The film was released worldwide on June 15.
