While Salman Khan has enough reason to scoff at  critics who wrote  off  Race 3, he is  still far from  pleased  by the box-office outcome of his latest Eid offering.

Post Eid, the festive season that  is  regarded  as  Salman’s apna ilaaka (personal  domain) the  film nosedived  at  the  box-office.
A  top personnel from a leading multiplex chain who  wishes to remain anonymous, says the backlash against Race 3 has severely affected  its footfalls. “There  is no doubt that Race 3 is the poorest Eid performer from Salman Bhai. Even his staunch fans  have  hated it. The fall in footfalls post Eid has been steep. We expect the film to plummet  even further in the second week.”

Trade pundit Amod Mehra says he’s not surprised  by the dip in sales. “Since the film lacked substance the  collections were  bound to drop. Had the  film not been released  over  the Eid weekend it would not have  collected  more that Rs 125 crore.” The  first and  most major fall-out of  Race 3’s underperformance  is  a re-think regarding the  director for Race 4.

One hears from reliable  sources that Remo d’Souza who directed Race 3 may not direct Race 4 any more. “In any case Remo is  busy with  his dance film with Varun Dhawan  and Katrina Kaif. So he won’t be   able  to  devote time to Race  4 next year” says  the source.
The producers may  revert to Abbas-Mustan who co-directed  the first and second Race  films.”
