With over 5.1 million views in 18 hours, Heeriye ranks third on YouTube's trending videos list. Hiriye, composed by Meet Brothers, has the Internet's blessings.

Race 3 is the third installment in the Race film series, however, it's a reboot of the previous films with a new cast ensemble (Jacqueline and Anil Kapoor are exceptions) and new director Reo D'Souza. Salman Khan replaced Saif Ali Khan as the lead while Daisy Shah, Bobby Deol and Saqib Saleem joined the Race 3 family.
The trailer of Race 3 gave a glimpse of protagonist Sikander's world which is marred with conspiracies. Sikander's enemies are his closest ones which makes the game even more dangerous. At the event to launch the trailer of Race 3, Salman Khan said he had initially rejected the film because he thought he wasn't fit for the role. "Then we all worked on the script and made necessary changes. The script was so brilliantly written, all the characters were etched out," said director Remo D'Souza.
