The film made a whopping Rs 39.16 crore on its day 3, taking its 3-day total to a huge Rs 106.47 crore. His latest release Race 3 has also entered the Rs 100 crore club and despite negative reviews, looks to be on course for a good run at theatres.

The Salman Khan box office charm shows no sign of fading. In New Zealand alone the film has amassed the total of NZ $ 315,935 which converts to around INR 1.49 crores in its 1st weekend. Race 3 zoomed past the opening day collections of big-hitters like Baaghi 2, Padmaavat, Veere Di Wedding and PadMan.

Though Salman Khan's Race 3 has wreaked havoc at the box office, it's to be seen how well it earns on its weekdays as now the film's real test begins. This is the third-highest opening Salman Khan film on Eid, after Ali Abbas Zafar's Sultan (Rs 36.54 crore) and Kabir Khan's Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 32.93 crore).

Race 3 box office collection day 4: Salman Khan's film will remain unstoppable.

Along with Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem are also part of the ensemble.

Despite the brickbats, Salman is laughing his way to the box office with Race 3. As with his other Eid blockbusters like Kick, Dabangg and Bodyguard, the Khan fans seem to have poured in regardless of what critics have to say. The undiminished track record with films like Wanted (Rs 60.24 crore), Dabangg (Rs 138.88 crore), Bodyguard (Rs 148.86 crore), Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 198.78 crore), Kick (Rs 231.85 crore), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 320.34 crore) and Sultan (Rs 30.45 crore) had suffered a dent previous year with director Kabir Khan's Tubelight (Rs 119.26 crore). "It wasn't a film meant for Eid when people just want to have mad fun and are not looking for a heart-wrenching story", Johar pointed out. Race 3 is about a feud within a family of notorious arms dealers. This time, his first film for the year is being released on Eid eve, and already the flick has been declared one of the biggest hits.
