As mindless as they were, we enjoyed both Race films featuring Saif Ali Khan and they did pretty well at the Box Office. Directed by the Abbas-Mustan they had the perfect balance of raciness, glamour and thrill that comes with fast cars and hot babes. A third Race film has been in the works for some time now but it has been confirmed that Saif has not been cast in it; in fact he has been replaced by Salman Khan, whose Tubelight recently flickered at the Box Office.
Apparently, producer of the Race franchise, Ramesh Taurani has been after the superstar for four years and finally Salman has given the nod to the project on one condition that Remo D’Souza direct the third Race film. So that’s OUT Saif and IN Salman plus OUT Abbas-Mustan and IN Remo. We’re not sure whether this is a good move because the Nawab (that’s Saif) fit the role really well and Salman may not gel as efficiently. We see him more as an awami kind of guy.
What do you think? Would you rather see Salman or Saif Ali Khan in Race 3?
