Here is some excellent news for Bollywood fans. Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are likely to be cast together in the third part of the movie, Race. This duo was last seen together in the movie, God Tussi Great Ho along with the dashing Priyanka Chopra. This movie was the unofficial remake of the Hollywood movie, Bruce Almighty starring Jim Carrey.
If the news received by the sources are confirmed, then this duo will be sharing the big screen after nearly a decade. The source also said that Amitabh Bachchan is really thrilled and has no apprehensions of any way in working with Salman. This collaboration between the two mega stars is surely going to increase the buzz for the movie.
Prior to this, these two actors were seen together in the movie, Baabul and Baghban, but these movies were shot long before Aishwarya, Salman’s ex became the daughter in law of Amitabh Bachchan. However, Salman’s father, Salim Khan who is a veteran Bollywood scriptwriter has experienced a long and successful association with the legendary actor, Amitabh Bachchan.
When Salim and Javed Akhtar worked together, they had penned down some of the best movies starring Amitabh Bachchan like Sholay, Trishul, Majboor, Zanjeer and Deewar. But later, Javed and Salim split up and Amitabh vowed to always work with Javed Akhtar. This was where the association between Khan and Bachchan had snapped, but with Salman and Amitabh coming together for the same movie, it seems like they have shoved away their past issues with each other.
The first two parts of this series were directed by Abbas and Mustan. The third part is going to be directed by Remo. Since this part is going to be directed by a new director, the cast is going to be completely new.
