After wrapping up Tiger Zinda Hai shoot, Salman Khan is all set to begin his shoot for Race 3, the 3rd installment of Race franchise which will also star Jacqueline Fernandez and will be helmed by Remo D’Souza.
In accordance with the previous installments, Saif was playing the lead role and now Salman Khan has stepped in. As per the reports, the filmmakers had approached Saif Ali Khan to play a parallel leading role with Salman Khan but he denied for the same as he was the main protagonist in the previous two movies.
A source informed that, “He was the hero of the franchise. Suddenly, why would he want to be the second lead to Salman.” And the producer Ramesh Taurani now confirmed that, “Yes, Salman and Jacqueline are confirmed for Race 3. It will release next year on Eid.”
There was also mentions about Daisy Shah being roped in for the action franchise. But Taurani said, “We haven’t taken a call on that. We will do that in a week’s time.”
Further, we come to know that there will be other parallel actors with Salman Khan in the movie. It was also found that the filmmakers have approached a few actors, but till now no one has been locked.
Well, it will be quite interesting to observe how the cast will look if Salman is indeed coming on the board.
However, in the previous interview, Remo had refuted reports of him directing Race 3 and had maintained that he is going ahead with his dance movie with Salman Khan.
Remo said, “I don’t know where this news is coming from. I am not involved with Race 3. So, I don’t know whether Salman Khan is a part of the film or not. Salman Khan is very much a part of my dance film where he plays the role of a father. He is a man of his words.”
Talking about the movie, Salman will be seen playing the role of father of a teen. Still, we have several reports airing, let’s just wait for the official word.
