Here is the list of 7 actors who too were offered a part in Race 3.
Saif Ali Khan
The first and original star of the thriller franchise Saif Ali Khan refused to play a part in the film because the actor didn’t want to play second or parallel lead to Salman Khan. In an interview given to media, he said, I was offered a part but Salman Khan is the best thing to happen to anybody. He’s the biggest star in the country.” He also added, “I didn’t feel a connection myself with the part I was offered. So, I decided to do something else.”
Yes, if Amitabh Bachchan was agreed to be in the film, Race 3 would’ve been the reunion of Bachchan and Bhaijaan after long 10 years on silver screen. Their last movie together was God Tussi Great Ho released in 2008. According to a leading daily, Big B already has given his October and November dates for the football biopic Jhund.” Interestingly, according to Mumbai Mirror, Amitabh Bachchan has even opted out of Jhund last month due to endless delays in the shooting of the film.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, last year, when the casting process was still on John Abraham was in the contention for a role since he was a baddie in Race 2 but Salman Khan didn’t want him to be a part of the film due to his personal equation with the Parmanu actor, which is not great.
The part of Saif Ali Khan has been offered to the chocolate boy of Bollywood, Sidharth Malhotra but he too rejected the film. According to a report in Mid-day, Sidharth refused because he was paired opposite Daisy Shah who is not an A-lister.
Aditya Roy Kapur
According to the reports in DNA “The makers feel that Aditya is right for this role because he has never attempted anything like this before. And Aditya has the dates. So it’s a win-win situation for them.” However, later Aditya also decided to opt out of the film.
Just like Sidharth, Emraan Hashmi too refused the role because he was to star opposite Daisy Shah. It was also reported he wasn’t comfortable playing second fiddle to Salman Khan. The makers has finally roped in Bobby Deol for the part.
