The Race movie franchise is again in the news and now it’s for a real gamechanger. We all have seen Anil Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan amidst all the unexpected twists and turns in the previous parts and this time both of them are dropped out. To fill in their shoes, Bobby Deol and Salman Khan have been roped in Race 3. Also Remo D’souza has will be making his directorial debut in this much awaited Race sequel instead of the famous duo of Abbas-Mustaan.
With the addition of Salman Khan in a big franchise has already made the audiences excited, but there is a new addition to the cast of Race 3 for which people are really pumped up for. While Daisy Shah and Salman are co-stars of 2014 movie ‘Jai Ho’, Saqib Saleem is best known for starring in Mere Dad Ki Maruti along with Ram Kumar. Daisy is going to be the second lead of the movie after Jacqueline Fernandez and Bobby Deol will be seen in a negative shade. If you have watched the previous movies, all the characters apparently portray some negative shades at some point in the movie, thus making the plot more interesting.
According to flying speculations earlier, actors like Aditya Roy Kapur, Emraan Hahmi, Sooraj Pancholi and Sidharth Malhotra were being considered for an empty slot on the Race 3 cast, which now seems to have been given to Saqib Saleem. There was a time when Salman was even offered the role of a villain but he turned down the offer considering all the movies he’s been doing from last decade. The music is given by none other than Pritam who has done a fabulous job with his music in the previous movies of the Race franchise too. The Remo D’Souza directorial will be shot in Mumbai at first, and the shoot will take place in various foreign locations later.
The movie is slated for release on June 15, 2018 and till then all we can expect is some kickass action and pumped up music from the makers and new cast.
