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

"Race 3" after two days of its release, has garnered over Rs.67 crores in profits all over India. However, it failed to become the top opening weekend grosser of the year, as it failed to beat Padmaavat's Rs 114 crore number.

The Salman Khan box office charm shows no sign of fading. Total: "Rs 106.47 crore", Mr Adarsh tweeted. The "slick and stylish" thriller opened to Rs 29.17 crore on Friday, thus breaking the opening day record of Salman's previous Eid releases like Dabangg (Rs 14.5 crore), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 27.25 crore), Kick (Rs 26.4 crore) and Tubelight (Rs 21.15 crore).

Race 3 and Salman Khan are that magical commodity known as critic-proof.

'Incredibles 2' makes heroic US$180m N. America box office debut
It's also the second-biggest June opening, behind only 2015's "Jurassic World" and the eighth biggest debut of all time. Lewis expanded on this concern in a blog post titled The Real Villain In Incredibles 2 - Strobe Lights (NO SPOILERS ).

In fact, to put his star power in perspective one must note that apart from Race 3, three of Salman Khan's movies - Sultan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Tiger Zinda Hai - raked in more than Rs 100 crore in only three days. Fourth Salman-starrer to collect Rs 100 crore-mark in 3 days. One thing is for sure, it won't go to the levels of Tiger Zinda Hai. Friday 29.17 cr, Sat 38.14 cr, Sun 39.16 cr.

Race 3 is now registered the second-highest opening weekend of the year, surpassed only by Padmaavat.

Khan also seems to have trumped the bad luck surrounding his age-old Eid dominance with Race 3.

There is also an exhaustive process of reading, review and commentary before the admissions committee votes on each application. The plaintiffs in the lawsuit claim Harvard buried the results of the internal review when it didn't like what they found.

In spite of major reviews not in favour of the film - highlighting the poor screenplay, loose story and weak performances (but great action) - it has managed to pull audiences to the silver screen. In the afternoon, Salman along with his nephews came at the window of his residence to wave at the hundreds and thousands of fans who were waiting to catch the glimpse of their favourite star.

While the previous two films were directed by Abbas-Mustan, Remo D'Souza has helmed the latest flick.

Not just India, Race 3 dominated the worldwide market as well.
