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 embarked on a superb 50-55 percent start, ended up netting 28 crore on the pre-Eid day, which is the best of the year beating BAAGHI 2.
Having said that, it is far below the predicted 35 crore, which is a tad disappointing. While the collections will hit the roof today, the opening weekend may end up in the 85-90 crore range, and not the expected 100 crore , as is the norm with Salman’s films.
Meanwhile, Anil Kapoor Film Company and Balaji Telefilms Ltd’s Kareena, Sonam, Swara and Shikha starrer, VEERE DI WEDDING, saw a stable 19 crore follow up week, thus netting 73 crore (to be validated) in two weeks from India . As VDW needed just 40 crore from the Indian theatrical run, to be a safe bet, it is now a clean hit and the good overseas run adds to the sheen.
