Mumbai: Bollywood actor Boby Deol has been roped in for Salman Khan starrer ‘Race 3’. Helmed by choreographer turned director Remo D’Souza, the movie is a third installment of ‘Race’ (2008) and ‘Race 2’ (2013).
While the names of Sidharth Malhotra and Emraan Hashmi popped up in the recent past, producer Ramesh Taurani has rubbished all the reposts, saying that Bobby will play the second lead in ‘Race 3’.
Taurani took to his Twitter account and tweeted, “Welcome to the family #BobbyDeol @BeingSalmanKhan @Asli_Jacqueline #Race3 #Eid2018.”
Earlier Bobby had worked with Taurani in Soldier and Naqaab. If sources are to be believed, Ramesh heaped praises on Bobby and said, “He is an absolute delight to work with, very professional and a really nice guy. He will be styled differently in the film and you will see him in a never-seen-before avatar.”
Apart from Salman and Bobby, Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen in a pivotal role.
Sources say that the ‘Race 3’ will be shot in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The movie is scheduled to release on Eid 2018.
