Mumbai: Salman Khan’s ‘Race 3’ has been in the news ever since it was announced. Breaking away from the first two instalments, neither is this movie directed by Abbas-Mustan nor does it star Saif Ali Khan.
‘ABCD’ fame director Remo D’Souza has come on board for the movie whose character posters are being revealed this week.
Even though the movie is produced by Ramesh Taurani’s Tips Industries, Salman Khan has also invested in the movie and he has reportedly already thought about how ‘Race 3’ can be profitable even before release.
A source reveals to Mid-Day, “Salman Khan’s last outing ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ (2017) had earned around Rs 70 crore from the satellite rights, which was said to be the highest price paid for a Bollywood film. With the actor joining the cast of ‘Race 3’, Taurani and he are looking at doubling the figure. After a few talks, the duo has decided that they will offer the airing rights at Rs 150 crore.”
“Salman has also decided to take a percentage of the film’s profit and the earnings from the satellite rights,” added the source.
When contacted, Taurani said, “I am not aware [of this] and I would not like to talk about it.”
‘Race 3’ also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem, Freddy Daruwala in pivotal roles.
