The Eid release, Salman Khan Films and Tips Industries Ltd’s Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Jacqueline, Saqib and Daisy starrer, RACE 3, which saw a good opening weekend (104 crore), thanks to Eid, Salman and brand RACE, could not keep up the tempo, beyond Monday, very much as we had predicted.
Coming to specifics, the collections maintained decently during the weekdays pulling in another 40 crore, as the first week closed in at 144 crore (to be validated), which can be termed as satisfactory, given the flak and negative reviews. And that ensures that the film will be a safe bet for most of it’s distributors (needs a distributors share of 80 crore) and may even prove profitable, at the end of it’s run.
RACE 3 has also done very well in the overseas grossing $6.75m with $1.7m from the US, during the opening weekend (15-17 June).
Having said that RACE 3 just has one more week to achieve, what we have stated above as next Friday onwards (June 29), as SANJU will take way most of the screens as well as business.
