Despite all the flak and negative reviews Salman Khan’s charismatic star power pulled RACE 3 to safety with a huge 104 crore weekend!
Coming to specific stats, after a good first day, which came in higher than estimated at 29 crore, Eid day saw collections hit the roof with 36 crore and Sunday was even bigger at around 39 crore, giving a huge 104 crore during the opening weekend.
Having said that it is obvious that the weekdays will be much lower, especially Tuesday onward, but RACE 3, which is already highly profitable for the producers, should now be a safe bet for most of it’s distributors too, barring Tamil Nadu.
The overseas has also seen huge numbers, especially in the Gulf (details awaited) with $1,630,000 from the US, during the opening weekend (15-17 June).
What is now clear is that RACE 3 is not the next TUBELIGHT from Salman, as was being speculated in certain quarters, because it will overtake it’s total collections today (Monday) itself!
