  • The ultimate Eid playlist

On Day 3, the numbers further escalated to help the movie cross Rs 100 crore mark in just 3 days by earning close to Rs 39.16 crore at the ticket window on Sunday.

Race 3 is now registered the second-highest opening weekend of the year, surpassed only by Padmaavat. Total: "Rs 106.47 crore", Mr Adarsh tweeted. Following suit were films like Ready at Rs 120 crore, Bodyguard at Rs 144 crore, Ek Tha Tiger at Rs 186 crore, Dabangg 2 at Rs 149 crore, Jai Ho at Rs 109 crore, Kick at Rs 211 crore, Bajrangi Bhaijaan at Rs 315 crore, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo at Rs 194 crore, Sultan at Rs 300 crore, Tubelight at Rs 114 crore and Tiger Zinda Hai at Rs 339 crore.

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. Salman Khan has dethroned, Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani's Baaghi 2 with Race 3, making it the highest opener of the year so far.

In 2016, Salman's Eid release, Sultan, earned Rs 105.53 crore in its first three days, despite releasing on a Wednesday. The undiminished track record with films like Wanted (Rs 60.24 crore), Dabangg (Rs 138.88 crore), Bodyguard (Rs 148.86 crore), Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 198.78 crore), Kick (Rs 231.85 crore), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 320.34 crore) and Sultan (Rs 30.45 crore) had suffered a dent previous year with director Kabir Khan's Tubelight (Rs 119.26 crore). But it remains to be seen how it continues to perform during the weekdays. Today those lines fit perfectly to the box-office business that the film is doing ever since its release on 15 June. The movie has been ruthlessly bashed by critics, audiences and on social media. Anil Kapoor is wasted in his role. That's Salman Khan for you. The report added that "Race 3" has scored well all over India, barring Tamil Nadu and Kerala but the trend in key centres such as Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar and Central India looks great all over.
