News of Salman Khan being a part of, replacing Saif Ali Khan, in the Race franchise, Race 3, shocked one and all. However, when we heard that Jacqueline Fernandez has been paired opposite him, we got all the ‘Latt Lagg Gayi’ and ‘Jumme Ki Raat’ feels back. Honestly, we loved both sides of Jackie. And if we heard it correctly, then ‘A Gentleman’ named Sidharth Malhotra is also in the race to be part of this movie.
A little birdie informs,
“Yes, Sidharth has been approached for the part. Salman is very fond of Sidharth and suggested his name for the film. This is one of the biggest films that Sid has been offered. It will also be his first franchise.”
Wooh! We actually thought it would be Jacqueline who’d recommend Siddy boy, because obviously, they too have grown close to each other too soon. But it truly was Salman, as per what reports suggest.
We further hear,
“Salman will never play the bad guy on screen. He doesn’t want to send out the wrong message to his fans. It has been learnt that the film will have an ensemble cast. They want it to be bigger and better than the previous Race films. Sid is considering doing the project, and since the film rolls out this October, he has the required dates. His ‘Aiyaary’ will be over with another 10-15 day schedule in September itself.”
The source also adds,
“It looks like both Salman and Sidharth will be fighting for Jackie. This Race franchise will have more twists than all the previous installments. Sid has not yet signed on the dotted line. He is still discussing it, but who would say no to such a film?”
Truly, we’d love to replay “seene mein isne bullet utaari toh ude jugnu haan” for ‘Race 3’ too. But this one has some tough competition, if at all Sid joins the cast.
Who do you think will Jacqueline go with? Sid or Sallu? Tell us in the comments below.
