Race 3 has already created a buzz ever since everyone got to know that Salman Khan will be playing the lead in the franchise. Actor Sidharth Malhotra was offered the role before Bobby Deol in Race 3 opposite Salman, but he rejected it.
When asked about the reason, Sid said:
“There were talks earlier and nothing really culminated. Now, they have done their casting. I know Ramesh Taurani and Salman Khan and they are wonderful people to work with. Maybe (I will work with them) in the future if not this. There were no creative differences. There were other things on my plate so I couldn’t shift things around to do that film. There was a time limitation, they are starting shoot right now and I couldn’t do it. So we couldn’t go ahead with it.”
He also added:
“It would have been great to share screen space with Salman.”
Well, better luck next time Sid.
