Salman Khan is all over the news these days, because of the ‘Blackbuck’ case. Salman Khan was given the punishment of 5 years in the jail recently in Jodhpur, but after staying two days in the Central Jail he was granted bail.
Khan is currently finishing the shooting of ‘Race 3’ which is all set to release on 15th June on the day of Eid. Directed by Remo D’souza, the film stars Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem. Khan has replaced ‘Saif Ali Khan’ in the third franchise, but like the other two Race parts, this will not be directed by ‘Abbas-Mustan’.
In this movie, Salman Khan plays the role of a villain called ‘Sikander’ and for the very first we will be seeing him in the role of a villain. Salman in an interview with DNA couple of years ago had mentioned, “I don’t want to be a villain. I believe in entertaining the audience. I like playing the hero, a good man whose memory people carry back home.”
Salman’s character in Race 3 is filled with lots and lots of grey shades. For the very first time ‘Bhaijaan’ has agreed to play the role of a villain in this movie, but there were so many conditions applied.
A source close to Salman Khan told Bollywood Life, “While Salman did not want to play a villain in the past few years, he chose to play one in Race 3. But he did not want to play regular villain, who goes around killing people. Bollywood villains are stereotyped as those goons who just go around town beating up people, drinking alcohol and be those typical skirt chasers. Salman did not want anything to do with that, and made it clear to the makers of Race 3. He told them that he wanted to play a psychological villain, where he would formulate all his vicious plans in his brain and win the battles by wit rather than brute power. He wants to be a conniving villain and that’s what you will see him doing in Race 3.”
