Salman Khan film Race 3 scores a century at the box office

Salman Khan is the undisputed ruler at the Box Office by Remo D'Souza, Race 3 has been garnering poor reviews but that has not hindered its unprecedented growth at the Box Office on the first day itself.

Collecting Rs 39.16 crore on Sunday, the total domestic collection for Race 3 first weekend went to Rs 106 crore. Apart from Salman, Race 3 also stars Jacqueline, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Freddy Daruwala, Saqib Saleem, and Daisy Shah.

In North America, Race 3 earned around Rs 92 lakh (£102,128), in the UK Rs 2.08 crore (£281,000), in Australia Rs 87 lakh (£96,600) and from New Zealand, Rs 47 lakh (£52,200).

Salman Khan is regularly releasing his films on Eid eve, and it seems it is his lucky charm. However, it failed to become the top opening weekend grosser of the year, as it failed to beat Padmaavat's Rs 114 crore number.

Additionally, it must be kept in mind that apart from its box office collection, Race 3 has already collected Rs 130 crore from satellite rights and that the movie has one of the widest releases in Bollywood with 4,200 screens. "And Race 3 scores a century". The critics have never been a fan of Salman, the actor.

"Of course, Salman Khan is a huge draw and his fan following, particularly for Eid releases, is incomparable", said film trade and exhibition expert Girish Johar.

"With Tubelight, it was probably a case of wrong timing". The answer lies with the performance of films from Khan's competitors and his upcoming offerings of which one is scheduled for Eid next year -Ali Abbas Zafar's directorial venture Bharat, also starring Priyanka Chopra.

Mr Adarsh also posted about Race 3's crucial Monday test. It now stands with the grand total of Rs 193.41 crore at the worldwide box office.
