Salman Khan’s ‘Race 3’ crosses Rs 100 crore milestone over opening weekend

Box Office- Race 3 is at No. 11 spot of biggest days ever for a Hindi film is behind Dangal

The third installment of the Race franchise is Khan's 13th offering that has made Rs 100 crore and more.

Race 3 is now registered the second-highest opening weekend of the year, surpassed only by Padmaavat. "Race 3" sits behind film like "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion", "Tiger Zinda Hai", "Sultan", "Dangal", and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" in the sixth position on the list of highest first-weekend collections.

With over 70 percent occupancy on Day 1, Salman Khan-starrer collected Rs 29.17 crore net at the domestic box office.

Khan also seems to have trumped the bad luck surrounding his age-old Eid dominance with Race 3. Crosses cr... Fourth Salman starrer to collect ₹ 100 cr mark in *3 days* [#BajrangiBhaijaan, #Sultan, #TigerZindaHai].

Race 3 was released in 4,200 screens across the country to cater to massive demand and cash in on Salman Khan's huge fan following.

Race 3 is now the sixth film to cross Rs 100-crore mark in 2018.

Not just India, Race 3 dominated the worldwide market as well. The undiminished track record with films like Wanted (Rs 60.24 crore), Dabangg (Rs 138.88 crore), Bodyguard (Rs 148.86 crore), Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 198.78 crore), Kick (Rs 231.85 crore), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 320.34 crore) and Sultan (Rs 30.45 crore) had suffered a dent a year ago with director Kabir Khan's Tubelight (Rs 119.26 crore). More so because there is Sanju releasing on June 29.

Another factor to be weighed in for its performance on weekdays is word-of-mouth. The report added that "Race 3" has scored well all over India, barring Tamil Nadu and Kerala but the trend in key centres such as Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar and Central India looks great all over.

Salman's record stands unchallenged as other stars are not even close to this number.

To be sure, the action thriller also featuring Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez and Bobby Deol, is riding entirely on Khan's shoulders.
