Producer Ramesh Taurani has confirmed that Salman Khan’s character in Race 3 will have shades of grey and the superstar will be seen in an extremely stylish avatar.
While interacting with a leading publication, Taurani revealed that Khan’s character in the film will be as grey as Saif Ali Khan’s in Race and Race 2. The producer also confirmed that this would be the first ever negative role for Salman Khan. He said,
Yes Salman’s character is completely grey in Race 3 and it’s an extremely slick, stylish and exciting one – something he has not done before. The Race franchise always has grey characters in them – we are just continuing with that. Like Saif (Ali Khan) in Race or Race 2.
In the past, Salman Khan had said that he would never play a negative role in any of his films, however, with him coming on board for Race 3, it would be interesting to know which element in the script made him get on board. The movie, which would also feature Jacqueline Fernandez, is expected to go on the floors in October this year in Mumbai.
After a month long schedule in Mumbai, the team will fly out of the country wherein a major portion of the film will be shot. Apart from the two main leads, producers have approached Amitabh Bachchan to play a pivotal role in the film, however, the actor is yet to take the final call about his involvement in the film.
The movie will be directed by Remo D’Souza who is known for the successful ABCD franchise and is slated to hit the big screen during the Eid 2018 weekend. The official announcement about the complete star-cast is expected to be made soon and sources have revealed that the introductory event will be huge.
The film will see Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez team up for the second time after Kick.
