Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has revealed in an interview that he was approached for Race 3 that stars Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez in lead roles, but he had to opt out due to scheduling conflicts.
A source close to the matter said, “Big B already has given his October and November dates for the football biopic, Jhund. The Race 3 team also plans to begin shoot around the same time. The clash of dates meant that Bachchan had to choose one and since he had already given his dates to Jhund, he politely turned down Race 3.”
Reportedly, Siddharth Malhotra and Aditya Roy Kapoor too have rejected the film that will be helmed by Remo D’Souza. As per the sources, the film will be shot across Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Europe and Singapore. Khan will be seen playing grey character in the film. It is expected to release on 2018 Eid.
