Race 3 box office collection: Salman Khan-starrer set to cross Rs 300 crore internationally
Remo D’Souza’s Race 3 starring Salman Khan is inching closer to the Rs 300 crore mark at the international box office despite underwhelming reviews
The movie raked in an incredible 170 crores in the domestic market in the first two weeks itself, making it the highest grossing film of this year, second only to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat. The movie has also grossed over 200 crore from satellite, digital, music and ancillary rights.
Race 3's success marks a major benchmark in Salman’s career as apart from being the lead actor, he was also co-producer and distributor for the film. Apparently he had signed the movie on the condition that Remo D’Souza would direct it. This led to many speculations over whether Remo would be able to match upto the standards as brought forward by veteran director duo Abbas-Mustan, who had helmed the previous two Race films. While the movie has earned a pitiable 2.3 rating on IMDB, its success on the box office has both puzzled its critics.
Khan recently took to twitter to thank his loyal fans for the success of his film.
I thank every 1 who has gone to see #Race3 in the theaters n each n every 1 individually for watching race n glad that u have liked n appreciated every 1s effort that was put in the movie. God bless sukhi raho n keep watching means a lot.https://t.co/5Yd2Dhkywp #Race3InCinemas

Salman is now set to share screen space with Priyanka Chopra in his next film, Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. The movie will be a special treat for his fans as the star will sport five different avatars in the film.
"The Yash Chopra Foundation will bear all other costs too associated with vaccinating the workers," said Yash Raj Films.
Salman Khan said his parents, veteran screenwriter Salim Khan and producer Salma Khan, got their second dose on 9 May along with brother-producer Arbaaz Khan.
With muted reception to event films on OTT platforms, release of Salman Khan's Radhe is a high-profile litmus test
The argument can be made that event films like Laxmii and Coolie No. 1 were never meant to belong in homes and laptop screens. But the counterargument is that perhaps they were never meant to belong at all.
