Race 3 box office collection: Salman Khan beats Tiger Shroff, but not Deepika Padukone, here is how
Race 3 box office collection: Salman Khan starrer Race 3 has become the 2nd highest first week grosser of 2018. With a collection of Rs 144.51 cr , Race 3 managed to surpass Tiger Shroff starrer Baaghi 2 (Rs 112.85 cr) by a massive margin, Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor starrer Veere di Wedding (Rs 56.96 cr) and Ajay Devgn starrer Raid (Rs 63.05 cr). However, Deepika Padukone starrer Padmaavat, which benefitted massively from teh controversy surrounding it, remains firmly at the top with a first week collection of Rs 166.50 cr.
Race 3 collection witnessed a gigantic start, opening at Rs 29.17 crore and soon joining the 100 cr club at the end of the opening weekend. It is also the highest Hindi film opener of 2018. Yes, it did manage to beat Deepika Padukone movie in that respect.
Despite negative critical reviews, Salman Khan continues to rule the BO. Race 3 got a two-week time for the solo run until Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Sanju’ knocks at the box office on June 29. Unlike Tiger Zinda Hai, which enjoyed an uninterrupted run for a few weeks, Race 3 has just one more week to score, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Twitter.
