As always the superstar Salman Khan is all set to break records with his recent release 'Race 3'. Every year Salman gives a treat to his fans on Eid with his film. Race 3 which is a mega-budget, multistarrer movie has done a great start at the box office. On first day itself the movie earned Rs. 29.17 crores, making it the highest opening film of the year.
In a media interaction Salman was spotted saying about the movie- "a film with big scale music, emotion, action, youth kind, which you watch, whistle in the end and go back home happy".
Talking about the story, Race 3 is based on the family of Shamsher Singh played by Anil Kapoor. His twin children Sanjana (Daisy Shah) and Suraj (Saqib Saleem) are not happy with their half-brother 'Sikander' played by Salman. And thus they keep on playing mind games with each other. Anil Kapoor is the only person who has been part of all the three installments of 'Race' franchise. This time he is playing the role of owner of a business empire unlike the previous versions where he played a cop.
This movie of Salman left Aamir Khan's 'Dangal' behind in the case of satellite rights. The film has sold the satellite rights for a big amount of RS 13o crores. Which clearly states that the filmmakers have already recovered the production cost even before release of the film.
Race 3 is the third film of 'Race' franchise which is co-produced by Salman Khan and Ramesh Taurani. Action sequences in the film are performed by Salman himself. With a major section of the film being shot in Abu Dhabi, the filmmakers had to shift their shooting location to Rajasthan due to Salman Khan’s visits to court in blackbuck poaching case hearings. This movie also reunites the pair of 'Jacqueline-Salman' after their blockbuster hit 'Kick'.
