Heavy duty stuff !!!! @SrBachchan may also join in #Race3 with @BeingSalmanKhan @Asli_Jacqueline with @remodsouza
Here's some news for all fans of Big B and Salman Khan. The duo is all set to come together for Race 3. Yes, you heard that right. Salman and Amitabh Bachchan were last seen together in 2008 film God Tussi Great Ho, which also featured Priyanka Chopra. A film that was the unofficial remake of Jim Carrey's Bruce Almighty. If BollywoodLife source is to be believed then after almost a decade the two stars will be seen sharing screen space. Our source told, "Amitabh Bachchan has been approached for Salman Khan's Race 3. And it seems that Big B is pretty thrilled and has no apprehensions working with Salman." Looks like Remo D'Souza who is known for dance films like ABCD series is all set to strike off to megastars from his wishlist with this one film. The buzz around Race 3 will obviously amp up several notches with the Bollywood legend joining the Dabangg hero.
Bachchan Sr and Salman have worked in Baghban and Baabul before this. Obviously these films were shot for much before Salman's ex Aishwarya Rai got married to Abhishek Bachchan and became the Bachchan Bahu. Salman's father veteran Bollywood scriptwriter Salim Khan has had a long and successful association with Amitabh Bachchan. In fact, it was was the famous Salim- Javed (Akhtar) duo that penned some of Amitabh Bachchan's iconic films like Deewar, Zanjeer, Majboor, Trishul and Sholay. After the Salim-Javed split, Big B apparently vowed to continue working with Javed Akhtar. This kind of burned the bridge between Bachchan and Khan. With Big B and Salman coming together for a film, looks like the two have let bygones be bygones and are willing to collaborate for work.
The first two films in this series were directed by Abbas Mustan duo. The film featured Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna in lead roles and also saw Anil Kapoor in the supporting cast. With the change in director's hat, looks like a new casting was expected. Well, we're super thrilled to hear this casting update of Race 3 and cannot wait to see Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan in one frame.
