After its fabulous Friday debut in theatres, which fetched it ₹ 29.17 crores, Salman Khan’s action entertainer Race 3 took a massive jump on day 2 and pulled in a humongous ₹ 38.14 crores, taking its domestic cume to ₹ 67.31 crores.
The growth is unbelievable considering the fact that the film has not received very positive response from critics with many panning it for being too stylized and showy. Several people have said that it’s the weakest film of the Race (2008) franchise.
But the box-office collections of the movie paints a totally different picture. The film opened well despite releasing on non-holiday. Keeping its pace pretty strong, it earned a stupendous ₹ 38.14 crores on its second day of release. That’s enough to prove that Salman Khan’s films are critic-proof and clock money no matter what.
Sharing the second-day collection on his Twitter handle, well-known film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “#Race3 hits the ball out of the park on Day 2 [Sat]… #Eid festivities give MASSIVE BOOST to its biz… Day 3 [Sun] should score BIG NUMBERS yet again… ₹ 100 cr+ weekend on the cards… Fri 29.17 cr, Sat 38.14 cr. Total: ₹ 67.31 cr. India biz.”
Race 3 is expected to swell further on Sunday, which means it is set to make a boatload of cash by the time it closes out its first weekend. In all likelihood, the Remo D’souza directorial will mint ₹ 100 crores in its first weekend.
