Race 3 box office collection day 2: The Salman Khan film has earned a total of Rs 67.31 crore. The film is expected to rule the box office for the foreseeable future.
After becoming the highest opening grosser of 2018, Remo D’Souza directorial Race 3 has shown phenomenal growth on the second day of its release. The Salman Khan starrer has earned Rs 38.14 crore on Saturday, taking the total collection to Rs 67.31 crore. The film, which is an Eid release, opened to a record Rs 29.17 crore.
Featuring a star-cast with names like Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala apart from Salman, Race 3 is the third iteration in the action-thriller franchise. In the film, Salman Khan replaces Saif Ali Khan as the primary male lead.
Here are the details of Race 3 business so far:
“#Race3 sees a big jump and phenomenal GROWTH on Day 2, collects 38.14 crs. It takes the total collection of 2 days to 67.31 crs, which is massive!
Fri – 29.17, Sat – 38.14, Total – 67.31. @SKFilmsOfficial @tipsofficial @BeingSalmanKhan @RameshTaurani @remodsouza,” revealed the makers of Race 3.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh earlier tweeted the figures of day one. “#Race3 records a GIGANTIC START, despite pre-Eid making a dent in its business… Emerges the BIGGEST OPENER of 2018 [so far]… Fri ₹ 29.17 cr. India biz… With #Eid festivities commencing today [Sat], #Race3 is expected to post MASSIVE NUMBERS,” he said.
The Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta had given a negative review of the film. She noted in her 1.5 star review, “Race 3 is nothing but a recycled bin of too many car chases, explosions, buffed up characters strutting in slo-mo, and wilted lines. The same character who had a ‘bad feeling’, also uses the word ‘so tacky’. Well, what else would you call a film which doesn’t do justice to its finest asset, Anil Kapoor? The superbly fit Kapoor is a left-over from the previous Race flicks, and he was an absolute hoot in both.”
The film is expected to cross the Rs 100 crore mark in its opening weekend. The collections will surely see a jump today and tomorrow. The other big films running in theatres like Veere Di Wedding and Parmanu suddenly do not look like threats. Race 3’s arrival has made life difficult for those films. This action-thriller film is expected to rule the box office for the foreseeable future.
