Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor starrer Race 3 earned Rs 12.05 crore on Tuesday, taking its total collection to Rs 132.76 crore in just five days. The Remo D’Souza directorial, also starring Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala, may have received poor reviews but when has that affected a Salman Khan film? Or a Race film, for that matter?
Race 3 box office collection
Sharing the latest box office figures of Race 3, a source close to the film said, “Race 3 marches ahead with a total of 132.76 crore at the domestic box office. Film witnesses a healthy trend on working Tuesday (Day 5) by collecting 12.05 crore.”
Salman Khan joined the Race franchise with Race 3. The film, like many of his films released on Eid, is one of the biggest films this year already. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given a negative review of the film. She said, “Race 3 is nothing but a recycled bin of too many car chases, explosions, buffed up characters strutting in slo-mo, and wilted lines. The same character who had a ‘bad feeling’, also uses the word ‘so tacky’. Well, what else would you call a film which doesn’t do justice to its finest asset, Anil Kapoor? The superbly fit Kapoor is a left-over from the previous Race flicks, and he was an absolute hoot in both.”
Race 3 hit screens on June 15.
