Third instalment of the popular action-thriller franchise returns with new lead pair, director and the first schedule in Mumbai

Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez will kick off the third installment of the Race franchise this October in Mumbai. Work on the sets has begun for the month-long schedule.

A  source told Mirror, “The plan is to re-work the original title track with the new leads grooving to it.” The franchise is known for its popular tracks, including the twice heard “Allah Duhai Hai”, “Zara Zara Touch Me” and Atif Aslam’s “Pehli Nazar” ruling the charts in the original, and Honey Singh’s “Party On My Mind” and Atif’s “Beintehaan” hitting bullseye in the sequel. Producer 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.”

The original Race released in 2008 with Saif Ali Khan, Bipasha Basu, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor and Sameera Reddy in pivotal roles. The sequel opened five years later with Anil and Saif reprising their roles as Robert D’Costa and Ranvir Singh respectively. Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Jacqueline and Ameesha Patel were the new additions. Both films were helmed by the director-duo Abbas–Mustan.

Still Megastar Salman's presence will ensure solo Eid release for it...which can't be said for Dwarf film.


exactly why need to utilize eid if a film does 114 cr on bigest festival whereas a film with clash with no big holidays does 135 cr


He delivers 114cr grossers on Eid...Still world's biggest superstar runs away in fear of him....That's Megastar SALMAN KHAN for you.

Before shouting on Tubelight collections just remember TL3 days>>>JHMS lifetime... What? Raees collected 135cr! Munna kabtak Red Chillies calculator ke sahare Zinda rehega.. Hahaha

As a member and hardcore fan of Shiv Sena , I will protest if Pakistani Atif Aslam gets a song in this film.

answered by Director (121k points)

Where were you when Rahat Fateh Ali sang for shivsena/BJP's aankhon ka taara Ajay's Baadshaho?


A certain superstar (Hashmi Sahab) called our headquarters.. So the high command cannot refuse his request.


you can expect Grand Wulfric sena's full support in this matter.

It's going to be huge. But please change the director and retain Saif Ali Khan. Saif is the soul of Race franchise.
