Race 3 Release Date, Star Cast 2018 – Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez

Race 3 release date: Once again, Salman Khan has booked his favorite release date. Race 3 will release on Eid 2018.

Race 3 is one of the most awaited movies of 2018. It is the third instalment of the famous Race franchise. Race is one of the most famous Bollywood franchises of Bollywood along with Dhoom, Housefull and Golmaal.

The makers have made big changes in the star cast of the film. Salman Khan has replaced Saif Ali Khan, who was the lead actor in the first two part of the franchise. I personally believe that is not a good decision as the franchise will loose its swag. Saif Ali Khan was exceptional in the first two parts of the film.

As per the reports coming, the movie will be a stand-alone and would not be continuing events from the previous two films. While the first two instalments of the franchise were directed by Abbas Mustan, this one will be directed by Remo D’ Souza.
