Action thriller RACE is one of the most loved movies of Saif Ali Khan, however Nawab will not be part of RACE's franchise.
SAIF ALI KHAN, SALMAN KHAN AND HRITHIK ROSHAN
As per media reports Saif is unhappy with the response of RACE 2 and is also hurt as the film failed to live up to the standards of its critically acclaimed sequel.
With Saif out of RACE 3, rumors were rife that the makers were considering Salman Khan for the lead role.
However, reports in media suggest that Salman is packed as he is working for two upcoming films consecutively. He is currently shooting for the historical war drama TUBELIGHT, as well as shooting for reality show Bigg Boss 10. Post which Salman will start shooting for Kabir Khan's TIGER ZINDA HAI, since he will be occupied with shooting for the entire 2017 it will be difficult for him to commit Abbas-Mustan.
And now the latest reports suggest that Hritik Roshan might replace Salman in RACE 3 as far as dates are concerned, it does not seem like a problem for Hrithik as he has many months to go before he starts shooting for KRRISH 4. Hrithik will have time to spare for RACE 3 after completing the promotions of his next action drama KAABIL opposite Yami Gautam.
After his last film, MOHENJO DARO's debacle at the box office if Hrithik signs RACE it will be a game changer for him.
