There have been speculations about Salman Khan’s casting in Race 3 as the lead villain for quite long. The actor has never in his entire career up until now played an antagonist in a film. Race has been a successful franchise so far with actors such as Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and John Abraham starring in its previous parts.
According to reports, the next installment has been pitched by the producers to Salman and a final script will be sent to him in January, by when he will be wrapping up with Kabir Khan’s Tubelight. Buzz is that Salman may have recommended his Sultan director Ali Abbas Zafar for the this film. Also, the Tauranis want some new age director to helm this film.
Salman is already working with Ali Abbas Zafar on the Ek Tha Tiger sequel which has been titled Tiger Zinda Hai along with Katrina Kaif.
Looks like a major news on Race 3‘s casting announcement awaits us in 2017. It will surely be exciting to see Salman play a grey character.
