Salman has also roped in Bobby Deol for Race 3. In an interview to NDTV, Bobby Deol admitted that Salman helped him come out of his "low phase" and that he was delighted to have been offered Race 3. "I am trying to be positive in my life and trying to work hard and get myself to look the best I can. I met Salman one year ago, and he told me everyone has low and high phases. He said when he had a bad period he climbed on to my brother's back and Sanjay Dutt's back. That's when I told him, 'let me climb on to your back for support.' He remembered that, and since he wishes the best for me, he offered me this role over the phone. I was thrilled and I'm ready to work as hard as required," Bobby Deol said in an interview.
Race 3 also marks Daisy Shah's second film with Salman Khan - Daisy's debut film Jai Ho! was with the 52-year-old superstar. Salman also suggested Daisy Shah for the cast of Race 3, about which, the actress told IANS: "Salman Khan is loved by a million people and if he has put his faith on me so, I don't want to disappoint him."
Race regulars Jacqueline Fernandez and Anil Kapoor will return to the third instalment, which also stars Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala. Remo D'Souza has taken over as the director in the third part - previous two instalments were helmed by Abbas-Mastan.
