Race 2 had an excellent Day 1 at the Domestic Box Office, as the movie collected about 15 Crores as per early estimates. The movie performed utmost in Mumbai, Delhi, Punjab and UP circuits.
The Abbas-Mustan directorial got mixed response from the critics, however, it seems the reviews just couldn’t affect the Box Office performance of the film. Race 2 had a huge opening at multiplexes across the Metros in India collecting full houses or near full. Its single screens performance at the mass belts was not as good as multiplexes since the movie is essentially a multiplex flick.
The Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, and Ameesha Patel starrer is expected to show a good jump in its business today, being a National Holiday.
Seems, this multi-starrer will surely give 2013 its first HIT!
