Salman Khan wants Katrina Kaif in Race 3 as another female lead?
Race 3 just stood up humongous after Bollywood superstar Salman Khan coming on board for the male lead. Much has been said, written and twisted so far regarding the casting of the action thriller. And a number of names from Amitabh Bachchan, Daisy Shah to Sidharth Malhotra did the rounds from time to time. Now news is that Salman wants his ex-flame Katrina Kaif in Race 3 as another female lead besides Jacqueline Fernandez.
Salman Khan names Katrina Kaif for Race 3 heroine?
Salman and Katrina recently wrapped up the longest Abu Dhabi schedule for their next release Tiger Zinda Hai. Both of them are getting closer day by day and now they don’t hesitate to spend lovely words for each other on the public platforms. Therefore the Sultan actor wants Katrina for another film specially when her last films Fitoor, Baar Baar Dekho, Jagga Jasoos bombed at Box Office. And Race 3 would definitely give a much needed boost to her career.
Interestingly, the film already stars Jacqueline Fernandez as one of the leading ladies. Katrina and Jacqueline was there in Race and Race 2, respectively.
Says a source, “There are three leading men and two leading ladies in Race 3. So there’s a very strong role for another heroine. Salman Khan is very keen to get Katrina Kaif on board.”
The source also adds, although Race 3 is produced by Ramesh Taurani, Salman Khan is calling all the shots on the project. According to a source close to the project, “When Salman decided to come on board for Race 3 he brought director Remo d’Souza with him. And Abbas-Mustan who directed the first two films in the series were dropped. Salman has a say in every department of Race 3, from the casting to the music to the locations. If he wants Katrina in the film, she is bound to be in the film.”
Daisy Shah is finalised for Race 3 second leading lady!
In the middle of these confusions, Daisy Shah is almost the chosen one for the second female lead. And she has been reportedly telling her friends about doing a big film that will start soon.
While Daisy went to say, “I have not signed the film on dotted line (yet) but we did have verbal communication. Let’s not comment on whether I am doing the film or not as it is unethical on my part to talk about it. Producers will make the announcement.”
Sooraj Pancholi to replace Sidharth Malhotra in Race 3?
Another latest news is that Sooraj Pancholi will join Race 3 cast. Apparently it is the same role that Sidharth Malhotra was supposed to do.
Says a trade source, “Sooraj is very close to Salman and there’s buzz that apart from Daisy, the super star also wants Sooraj in the film. It’s a specially written role for the young actor and will see him doing lots of stylized action. Sooraj is extremely excited about it and has been telling his close friends and family about it. Salman is very protective of Sooraj ever since he launched him in his home production Hero and was planning to do another film with him again as he feels Sooraj is extremely talented but has never really got his due.”
A Remo D’souza directorial, Race 3 has already started in Gulf and will release on Eid 2018.
