The Salman Khan box office charm shows no sign of fading.
With Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai all collecting over Rs 100, which is approximately £11 million or $15 million, Eid festivities boosted Race 3's overall business and helped the film register advance bookings before the release. The film had the biggest opening weekend this year, leaving behind Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh-starrer Padmaavat, which recorded a collection of Rs 75 crore nett on its first weekend.
Race 3 is the third instalment in the hit Race film series and Salman Khan's presence has raised the bar of expectations from the movie.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the Race 3 box office figures: "And #Race3 scores a CENTURY".
