Off late, rumours of Sidharth Malhotra rejecting Salman Khan’s Race 3 have been doing the rounds with no solid confirmation from either party yet. Considering Race 3 is Salman’s most anticipated project post Tiger Zinda Hai, it was expected that Bhai would understandably be upset over Sidharth refusing to be a part of his dream project.
While nothing has been confirmed yet, buzz is that the actor refused the film owing to date issues and a problems with the script. However, a recent report on Mid-Day suggests that the actor opted out because of a certain actress, who he doesn’t want to work with. The actress in question is Daisy Shah, who is confirmed to be part of Race 3. Sidharth apparently wasn’t happy about being cast opposite Daisy and preferred to star opposite a leading lady, like all his other films.
Post reports of Sidharth’s exit, some reports say that Aditya Roy Kapoor has been chosen to take his place, while other reports suggest that the filmmakers have chosen Bobby Deol to play Sidharth’s character.
Race 3 is one of the most awaited films to come, and considering the previous two instalments were so amazing, we can’t wait for the filmmakers to lock down casting on this one, and get started. Watch this space for updates on who they’ve finally chosen!
