The upcoming action-suspense-thriller film Race 3, which is the third instalment of the super popular Hindi film franchise Race, has grabbed a lot of attention even before its official announcement.
Earlier, the film was in news for the casting of Salman Khan as the male lead, then Jacqueline Fernandez’s entry after a lot of speculations became a talking point followed up by Remo D’Souza’s confirmation as the helmer of the biggie. The film has hit the headlines again, and this time too, the reason is really big!
According to some industry insiders, megastar Amitabh Bachchan has been approached to play an important character in the movie and if things fall into place, both superstars will be joining hands together after a huge gap of nine years as they were last seen in the 2008 release, God Tussi Great Ho.
A source also reveals to an entertainment portal that Big B, who has a number of plum projects in his hand at the moment, has quite liked the script of the slick action movie and he has no apprehension about working with the Dabangg Khan once again. They kind of stopped working together after Salman Khan’s ex-flame Aishwarya Rai married Abhishek Bachchan in 2007.
If the news is really true, it will be nothing less than a casting coup of sorts for Bollywood. Watching two megastars again on screen almost after a gap of a decade will really be a treat to all their fans and film lovers all across the world. If the whole casting is locked in next few days, the film will go on floors in October.
While Senior Bachchan is currently busy with the shooting of Thugs Of Hindostan with Aamir Khan, Salman is also tied up with the shoot of Tiger Zinda Hai with Katrina Kaif.
