Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham and Anil Kapoor starrer Race 2, which is a sequel to hit movie Race, has concluded the first week with wonderful collection at the Indian Box Office. The seven days business of the Abbas-Mastan-directed action flick is more than what Saif's last release Cocktail had collected in the country in its life time. It is likely to cross Rs 100 crore mark in the second weekend.
Despite getting mixed reviews from film critics, Race 2 started on fantastic note at the domestic Box Office and its business went up on following days. The movie created wonders at the ticket windows due to Eid-Milad and Republic holidays on Friday and Saturday. The action thriller collected Rs 51.35 crores nett at the Indian collection centres in the first weekend.
Race 2 showed a considerable amount of drop of 55% to 60% in its business on Monday when compared to its Friday collection. And it continued to decrease on the rest of the weekdays. The movie has collected Rs 24.75 crores nett at the domestic Box Office on the weekdays, taking its seven-day total to Rs 76.10 crores nett. Its breakup is Rs 15.12 cr on Fri, Rs 20.72 cr on Sat, Rs 15.51 cr on Sun, Rs 7.5 cr on Mon, Rs 6.5 cr on Tue, Rs 5.75 cr on Wed and Rs 5 cr on Thu.
However, Race 2 needs Rs 24 crores to surpass Rs 100 crore mark at the domestic Box Office. It is expected to cross this mark in the second weekend. But the movie is likely to face tough competition from new releases like David, Vishwaroop and a few other small budget movies. It should be seen whether it will achieve this figure in the second week or not.
