Race 3 is ruling the box office currently and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Race 3 released on Friday and since then its been only minting cash at the box office. Though the first day numbers were not as expected but there was a big reason behind it. A major chunk of the audiences were all busy preparing for the Eid the following day and kept themselves away from the theaters which clearly showed on the numbers. However Saturday saw a big leap almost 50% more than opening Friday. It rose from 29.17 crores on opening Friday to 38.14 crores on Saturday. The trend continued even on Sunday and by the end of the opening weekend the film had already defeated 30 films surpassing the lifetime collections of a few.
