Race 3 is one of the most publicised Bobby Deol films ever, at least in recent times. Speaking at the trailer launch, the actor said he is happy to be back in the limelight after a gap of many years. He even joked about the film’s producer Ramesh Taurani, “I am working with Ramesh ji again. I mean, he forgot me after Naqaab, but it’s been great working with everyone in this unit.”

Bobby revealed how film’s lead actor, Salman Khan inspired him to undergo a physical transformation as Salman came back with a quotable quote saying the Barsaat actor should be called ‘Body Deol’.

Many videos from the Race 3 trailer launch event showed the camaraderie among the team.

Another video showed Anil Kapoor and Salman joking about Saqib Saleem.

At the event, Salman said the film offers good music, action and people will have a good time watching the film. He said, “Like the kind of film used to happen earlier, this film is like that. This film has a vibe that earlier Bachchan saab, Dharmendraji used to do.”

He also talked about Bobby and said the Soldier star’s physique had changed so much that he should be called Body Deol.

The film also features Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah in important roles.

Jacqueline talked about her action scenes and said, “I have been a part of action-centric films in the past, but I have never done such action.”
