Race 3 success proves Salman Khan is undisputed king of box office

Within three days of its release, Race 3 has entered the coveted 100 crore club. "India biz." In two days, the action thriller has already raked in Rs 67.31 crore. In New Zealand alone the film has amassed the total of NZ $ 315,935 which converts to around INR 1.49 crores in its 1st weekend.

"Race 3's thunderous opening also proves that Salman is nearly (due to "Tubelight" and "Jai Ho") 'critic-proof" at the box office. "Race 3" sits behind film like "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion", "Tiger Zinda Hai", "Sultan", "Dangal", and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" in the sixth position on the list of highest first-weekend collections.

Salman Khan to his credit now has a record of most number of flicks minting Rs 100 crore at the box office, leaving behind stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan.

Merkel refused a closed-door policy on the migrant issue, and more than 1.6 million people have arrived in Germany since 2014. It originally carried 629 migrants but some were later moved onto two Italian vessels escorting it to Spain.

However, the Saturday and Sunday collections despite negative reviews flooding in since Friday prove that audiences, like Bhai, don't care about critics at all and will ensure "Race 3" is declared a victor. However, the film that also starred Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, had a five-day weekend as opposed to Race 3's regular weekend.

However, the figure is lower than Tiger Zinda Hai (114.93 cr), and it's surprising that his Christmas release took a better opening than his Eid counterpart. From North America market, it earned around Rs 82 lakh, whereas from the United Kingdom market it earned Rs 2.08 crore. As compared to the past Salman's film released on Eid, the performance of the film is not as good as Bajrangi Bhaijaan. With the third instalment, Salman has replaced Saif Ali Khan, who played the lead in first two films. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta panned the Remo D'souza directorial. It has become the second grossing Bollywood film in the opening weekend in 2018.
