Salman’s Race 3 has set a new opening day box office collection record in Pakistan despite being released a week after the Eid festival holidays.
The film, directed by Remo D’Souza, released eight days late in Pakistan after the government imposed a ban on the screening of Indian films two days before and one week after the Eid holiday period. The ban was imposed so that four big banner Pakistani films and other smaller regional language releases on Eid do good business without competition from Bollywood movies.
Race 3⃣ minted ₹2.62 Cr by Saturday after it started screening with a few midnight shows at some cineplexes in Karachi and Lahore on Friday. This means that the Salman-starrer has surpassed the collections of Avengers: Infinity War and Pakistan’s big Eid release, 7 Din Mohabbat Kay starring Mahira Khan.
