This is the fourth such century for Salman Khan after Bajrangi Bhaijan, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai where he took only first weekend such massive total.

Race 3 has overshadowed John Abraham's Parmanu and all female-lead Veere Di Wedding starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam K Ahuja, Swara Bhasker, and Shikha Talsania.

After collected 29+ crores "nett" on the First day, the film posted 106+ crores total on its First weekend.

The story of Race 3 revolves around Shamsher Singh (Anil Kapoor) and his kids - Sooraj (Saqib Saleem), Sanjana (Daisy Shah) and their cousin Sikander (Salman Khan) who are into illegal arms dealing.

Salman Khan to his credit now has a record of most number of flicks minting Rs 100 crore at the box office, leaving behind stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan.

Race 3 box office collection day 3: This Salman Khan film had opened its account at Rs 29.17 crore.

"Race 3's thunderous opening also proves that Salman is nearly (due to "Tubelight" and "Jai Ho") 'critic-proof" at the box office.

"#Race3 hits the ball out of the park on Day 2 [Sat]..."

However, the Saturday and Sunday collections despite negative reviews flooding in since Friday prove that audiences, like Bhai, don't care about critics at all and will ensure "Race 3" is declared a victor. But this time, the film will not be posting some big totals like 300 or 400 crores.

Race 3 has become the biggest opener from the Race franchise.

Race 3 has been approximately made at a budget of Rs 150 crore and if reports are to be believed, it has already made that sum by selling the satellite rights. Deepika Padukone's "Padmaavat" headlines the list while Baaghi 2, Raid and PadMan are also there.

Khan also seems to have trumped the bad luck surrounding his age-old Eid dominance with Race 3.

Taran Adarsh also gave a box office break-up of Salman's film from Bajrangi Bhaijaan to Race 3 and provided their earnings in three days. Anyway, today (Monday) collection will decide where it will end.

Here are the top five weekend openers of 2018.
