The makers of Race 3 launched the trailer of the film in 3D at a packed cinema theatre in the suburbs of Mumbai on Tuesday. The protagonist Salman Khan had been teasing his fans with one cryptic tweet at a time since Monday, sending the netizens into a frenzy of sorts. The entire star cast of the third installment in the Race franchise, including Salman, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem, Daisy Shah And Freddy Daruwala, was present at the trailer launch event making it one star-studded affair.
While director Remo D’Souza confessed that there was immense pressure on him to take the action franchise forward, leading lady Jacqueline Fernandez, expressed that she owes everything to Salman since their film Kick proved to be a major turning point for her.
On being asked if he has watched the previous two installments of Race, Salman shared, “I have not watched Race 1 and 2 but I knew the format so we just had to make some changes and add a bit of ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’ to it.” Talking about the genre of Race 3, Salman said, “This film is like a musical action bonanza. It’s like the ones Mr Bachchan and Dharamji used to do ages ago. You come watch, enjoy and go back home.”
Saqib Saleem shared that he was in class 10th when the first Race movie got released and he’s more than happy to be a part of such a big franchise. “I am just very happy that I am a part of such a big franchise and work alongside such experienced actors,” he said.
Bobby Deol, on the other hand, seemed elated with all the attention that he was getting, what with his chiselled bod and perfect abs (as seen in the trailer). The actor, who’s making a comeback to movies after a long hiatus, called Salman ‘Mamu’ and shared that it was he who believed in him, “I’m just happy to be working,” he concluded.
