Salman Khan to shoot for Race 4 before Dabangg 3?

But now this leak will surely affect the box office of Race 3.

After grossing the highest figures of the year for any Bollywood film, on Friday and Saturday, with Rs 29.17 crores and Rs 38.14 crores respectively, the Remo D'Souza directorial went one notch higher, minting Rs 39.16 crores on Sunday.

The big budget entertainer has been shot across exotic locations and boasts of an impressive star cast that includes Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandes, Saqib Salim, Daisy Shah and Freddie Daruwala. Deepika Padukone's "Padmaavat" headlines the list while Baaghi 2, Raid and PadMan are also there. "Has Google also watched Race 3?" a user commented on Twitter, while another wrote "Apparently you don't have to type "worst bollywood actor" anymore". This is the third-highest opening Salman Khan film on Eid, after Ali Abbas Zafar's Sultan (Rs 36.54 crore) and Kabir Khan's Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 32.93 crore). According to well-known trade analyst, Tarun Adarsh, the Film had the biggest opening in 2018.

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. Not only has the Eid fervour slowed down, Race 3 will also clash with the much-awaited Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju on June 29. Race 3 will cross the Rs 200 crore mark today at the ticket windows.

Salman has ruled the box office during Eid for quite some time now. Right now, Salman Khan's "Race 3" is experiencing similar feat at the box office.

Race 3 came out in India, the United Kingdom and the U.S. on Friday, June 15, 2018.

Talking about top 5 opening weekends of 2018, he tweeted, "TOP 5 - 2018 Opening Weekend biz. 1".
