Race 3 released on June 15. The film has collected over Rs 150 crore until now and going by the pace, it is just a matter of few more days when it will cross Rs 200 crore mark too.
Talking about the box office performance of Race 3, Bobby Deol had earlier said, “I am very happy that people have appreciated my work and appreciated everyone’s work. We keep getting criticism. It matters when the film is really bad and if this was so bad, it wouldn’t have worked commercially.”
The first two films of the Race franchise starred Saif Ali Khan but after the success of Race 3, it looks like the franchise now belongs to Salman Khan. And while the earlier two films were helmed by director duo Abbas-Mustan, the third film was directed by Remo D’Souza.
