There are two types of movies i.e. class and mass. Race 3 belongs to the second category. It is a mass-oriented movie. The movie has excellent action scenes, race 3 is a 3D movie.
4. Salman Khan effect
Salman Khan is currently king of Bollywood. The film requires a touch of Salman Khan easily enter into 100 crore club. Last 10-12 movies of Salman Khan are blockbuster, except 1-2.
The opening collection and first-weekend collection of Race 3 are extraordinary. But Race 3 experienced the downfall in Monday’s collection and it collected 14 crores.
