Official : Salman Khan’s Race 3 starts in October in Mumbai. The first month long shooting schedule kicks off in Mumbai confirms Producer Ramesh Taurani.
Ramesh Taurani confirmed the news, saying, “As of now, Salman and Jacqueline have been finalised for the lead while Remo D’Souza is directing it. We are yet to lock the rest of the cast and crew.
We start shooting on a set in Mumbai in October, followed by a long international schedule. We are currently figuring out the dates and foreign locations. The story is set abroad and will be completely different instead of taking off from the previous two films.“
As confirmed by the producer that much like Race & Race 2, the story of the film will be set abroad however the indoor scenes are expected to be shot in Mumbai schedule. Salman Khan will be shooting for Bigg Boss 11 in that time frame too. The foreign schedule is expected to take off once Bigg Boss 11 gets over.
The film is currently being targeted as Eid 2018 Release and there are plans to make the film in 3D. Official Confirmation awaited regarding both. Race 3 is more like a reboot of Race franchise with new characters and new story setup in place. The directorial baton has also shifted from Abbas Mustan to Remo D’Souza.
It will be interesting to see how Remo D’Souza directs Race 3 because he is generally known for directing dance based films. Salman Khan and Remo D’Souza were supposed to work in a dance based film but that was shelved due to reasons unknown to us.
