Salman Khan has signed some exciting films for 2018 and Ramesh Taurani’s Race 3, directed by Remo D Souza, is one of them. The super star will be seen in a completely grey character – something that he has not done before and very different from who he is. Salman has always maintained that he is not comfortable playing dark characters but the cool, suave stylish character was something he just could not refuse.
A source was quoted as saying to Pinkvilla, “Earlier Salman has always maintained that he won’t do dark characters or do a negative role but then as they say an actor can never say never.”
Says a source, “Earlier Salman has always maintained that he won’t do dark characters or do a negative role but then as they say an actor can never say never. The role is very exciting and has many shades. It is not a sequel to Race 2 but very different. The role will test the super star’s acting skills as it’s a complete contrast to what he is himself in real life. It’s something he has never played before but the sheer darkness of the character appealed to him immensely. Apparently Race 3 was earlier offered to Hrithik Roshan but he felt he cannot play such an immoral character. Considering that Hrithik played a professional thief one wonders at his definition of immoral. Maybe he just wants to play do-gooder roles now. This character that Salman plays in Race 3 is completely grey but that’s what Race is all about no – where all the characters are grey and there are only anti-heros? Salman is excited about Race 3 as it’s in a completely commercial genre and neither will his fans be disappointed.”
Producer Ramesh Taurani confirmed, “Yes Salman’s character is completely grey in Race 3 and it’s an extremely slick, stylish and exciting one – something he has not done before. The Race franchise always has grey characters in them – we are just continuing with that. Like Saif (Ali Khan) in Race or Race 2.”
