In recent times, Salman Khan's name has been synonymous with an Eid release at the cinema halls. This year, the superstar had one of the most awaited flicks of 2018, Race 3 hitting the theatrical screens. While the ensemble film hasn't received much of a kind word from the critics, it kickstarted its box office journey with a bumper opening.
Race 3 emerged as the biggest opener of 2018 so far with Rs. 29. 17 crores. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Race3 records a GIGANTIC START, despite pre-Eid making a dent in its business... Emerges the BIGGEST OPENER of 2018 [so far]... Fri ₹ 29.17 cr. India biz... With #Eid festivities commencing today [Sat], #Race3 is expected to post MASSIVE NUMBERS.
Speaking about Day 2 box office, the film has struck big on Day 2 as well. Taran wrote on his Twitter handle, "#Race3 hits the ball out of the park on Day 2 [Sat]... #Eid festivities give MASSIVE BOOST to its biz... Day 3 [Sun] should score BIG NUMBERS yet again... ₹ 100 cr+ weekend on the cards... Fri 29.17 cr, Sat 38.14 cr. Total: ₹ 67.31 cr. India biz."

Trolling is fun but one should APPRECIATE the hard work and soul which the entire cast and crew try to put in a film . They just want HAPPY FACES outside the theatre , irrespective of their film breaking records . #race3 long way to go @remodsouza @BeingSalmanKhan

The dialogue that Salman said in Race3 "Yeh race zindgi ki race hain, kisi ki zindgi leke hi khatam hogi" is actually meant for audience. #Race3 #SalmanRace3 #Race3ThisEid #Race3review #Race3InCinemas

"Race3 For no rhyme or reason this part was made, not even the character names are same. It's a perfect example of lousy writing & filmmaking, takes you back to the 80's where Hindi Cinema sufferered along with the audience. No shade of dark (except shades worn by characters)."
