Anticipation around ‘Race 3’ has begun and the hype of that is way too much. Makers in partnership with ticketing websites have opened the bookings already in advance as they are hoping for huge crowd to show up considering Salman Khan and EID mania. Race 3 is Salman’s first film to have ever come out in 3d and ticket rates are flying through the roof. Cinema owners charge couple of bucks extra for 3d glasses which they already own hence making more amount of profits for themselves and Ramesh Taurani. Race is one of the biggest franchise in Hindi cinema and now will be bigger than ever.
Odds are that film will get an opening of 30+ crores on the first day which means that most of the theaters will run housefull. Race will be released in more than 4000 theaters which means a great many people will see Saqib Saleem yet again. Bobby Deol is literally making a comeback from his forceful retirement and got this mammoth of a film all thanks to Salman. Anil is the only member of the franchise who is being repeated from the earlier versions and he has never ever looked more stylish.
Race will be gathering nearly equal amount of shows in both 2d and 3d as exhibitors would want to earn as much with this multi million dollar intellectual property. Race 3 has a clear 2 week run as no film would want to destroy their collections by coming in the way of this giant. 2 weeks later Raju Hirani will be coming with his highly anticipated blockbuster ‘Sanju’ starring Ranbir Kapoor and bookings of that has also started already. Race 3 is expected to gross more than 500 crores worldwide and makers would be hoping for their faith to turn white and prints getting distributed in Chinese theaters.
