Race 2 opened to a excellent response at the box office on Friday. The film performed well at both single screens/multiplexes and collected Rs 14.5 crore on it’s first day, which is a opening record for all actors.
For Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, Cocktail (11 cr) was their highest opener so far. While Housefull 2 (Rs 13 cr) was the biggest opener for John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandes. It’s also a record for an Abbas-Mustan film.
With Saturday being a holiday for Republic day, a jump of 5-10% would result in second day collections of around 15-16 crore. The growth in business is unlikely to be huge, as the reports are mixed and Friday was also a national holiday for Id-E-Milad.
