The brief history of Race
The first film of the Race series was released in the year 2008 which portrayed Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Bipasha Basu in the main role. The film was received well by the audience and thus marked the beginning of a successful venture. Come 2013, the makers were back with Race 2, a sequel to the previous one which again featured Saif Ali Khan in the main role along with John Abraham and Deepika Padukone. Now in the year 2018, 5 years after the release of its last venture of the series the makers are back with their latest edition Race 3 featuring none other than Salman Khan.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hain-Salman Khan is the only actor in Bollywood film industry to have 3 films which have crossed the 300 Crore mark. Since the stage is all set for Race 3 it is expected to go big in the box office also. The film hits the theatre on June 15. Though the film will not enjoy a long weekend and is releasing just before the day of Eid, it is still expected to break some records at the box office. The auspicious occasion of Eid have previously proven luck for the Dabaang Khan and this time it is expected to have the similar kind of turnout. Race 3 first day box office collection is predicted to be something around the 30 Crore mark and is expected to increase and reach the 100 Crore mark by its first weekend.
Last time when Salman Khan released a film in the Eid it didn’t do well in the box office and which is one of the rarest occasion in the recent times. All of his recent films have set up a benchmark in the box office with its release. The same is expected from the Race 3 Friday box office collection or Race 3 first day box office collection.
Pakistan ban the releases of Hollywood and Bollywood films on Eid
But there is a slight sign of worries among the makers since the film its having its worldwide release on June 15th; Pakistan has banned the rights for releasing any Bollywood and Hollywood films in the country during the time of Eid. Pakistan has also been a happy hunting ground for Salman Khan as his films have done exceptionally good in the country and are loved by many there. The makers are in a fix with the issue of the film getting distributed in the country before its release. This can turn out to be a big loss in the overall collection of the films which the makers surely want to avoid. Ramesh Taurani, the co-producer of the film said to the media that the International distributors are at a constant touch with the local distributors and is trying to figure out a way that is best suited for the film. If things go well and according to the plan then we can expect Salman Khan’s Race 3 Collection to not get affected and have one of the biggest openings this year.
