As always, Salman Khan has proved that he is the King of the box office.
Directed by Remo D’Souza, Race 3 got off to a fabulous start and dethroned Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani’s Baaghi 2 to become the highest opener of the year so far with the first-day collection of Rs 29.17 crore.
This is the third-highest opening Salman Khan film on Eid after Ali Abbas Zafar’s Sultan (Rs 36.54 crore) and Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 32.93 crore).
The film continued its winning streak, and raked in Rs 38.17 crore on its second day, taking its total collection so far to Rs 67.31 crore.
The film made Rs 39.16 crore on its third day, bringing its total collection to 106. 47 crore. Race 3 has zoomed past the Rs 100-crore mark within three days of its release.
Race 3 revolves around Shamsher Singh (Anil Kapoor), the owner of an arms empire, and his family. His children, twins Sanjana (Daisy Shah) and Suraj (Saqib Saleem), are “sick of this Sikku” aka their half-brother Sikander Singh (Salman Khan). The family has to pull off a bank heist, with help from the mysterious Jessica (Jacqueline Fernandez), but with deceit and double-crossings at every corner, will they be able to do it?
Despite critics trashing the film for its lack of coherent plot and logic, the audience is lapping up the film. Because of Bhai.
With the next big Bollywood release, Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, hitting the screens on June 29, Race 3 has a two-week window to rake in the moola.
