Race 2 starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandes, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel has just completed a good first weekend at the box office. The action thriller did well on Friday and Saturday, but had unexpected drops at several places on Sunday.
While Race 2 is well on course to cross the 100 crore mark, a lot would now depend on how well it sustains during the weekdays, especially Monday.
The film collected Rs 46.5 crore in it’s opening weekend. Below is the collection breakdown.
Race 2 Weekend Collections
- 1st Friday – 14.25 crore
- 1st Saturday – 17.5 crore (22% growth)
- 1st Sunday – 14.5 crore (17% drop)
- 1st Weekend Total – 46.5 crore
The opening weekend business of the Race is a record for all stars involved. In comparison, Saif and Deepika’s last film Cocktail collected 36.7 crores, while John and Jacqueline’s Housefull 2 collected 43.75 crores in it’s first weekend.
It’s also a record for director’s Abbas-Mustan who have made a comeback after Players, which was a major disappointment when it released exactly a year ago and collected just 15 crore in it’s first 3 days.
