With ₹100 crore in its pocket, it has become the first movie of this year to gross ₹100 crore.
Made on a budget of ₹60 crore, the film has collected over ₹80 crore in India and over ₹22 crore at overseas box offices.
After the success of "Race 2", the makers of the film are planning for the third installment of the film. Confirming the news, co-producer of the film Ramesh Taurani of Tips Film said, "I want a 10-day holiday now. It has been a two year long journey to put together RACE 2. But yes, RACE 3 is definitely on. With the sequel doing so well at the box office, it deserves more installments. We have these as a part of our immediate plans."
Produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Ramesh Taurani of Tips Film, the film features an ensemble cast. The film, a sequel to 2008 film "Race", features Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ameesha Patel in lead roles.
