"Race 3" starring Salman Khan in the lead, has entered its second week at the box office and is still showing no signs of slowing down. However, with this latest figure, the Salman Khan-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer has made the total collection of Rs 142.01 crore.

Race 3 has clearly lost the battle to these films and that too, by a substantial margin.

While Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) minted over Rs 206 crore in its first week, Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) showed its power by collecting more than Rs 184 crore during this time. It was not widely lauded by critics, but Salman's fan following and the love for the "Race" franchise have contributed to the numbers generated at the box office. Despite receiving negative reviews from the critics, it seems like fans and admirers of Bhiajaan are making it into a profitable venture at the ticket windows.

Race 3 earned Rs 106.47 crore in its opening weekend and became the second highest opening weekend grosser of 2018 after Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat (Rs 114 crore).

Salman's actioners are known to be no-brainers, but Race 3 takes "illogic" to another tangent.

However, that hasn't stopped the film from breaking a few records at the box office. Tubelight had collected Rs 21.15 crore on opening day and later came crashing down to collect merely Rs 3 crore at the box office on second Friday.

Along with his vote of thanks, Salman shared a mash-up of Race 3 for his fans to binge on.
