Salman Khan flexes muscle in Abu Dhabi for ‘Race 3’

Abu Dhabi features prominently in Salman Khan’s new action thriller, Race 3, the trailer of which was revealed by the stars in Mumbai on May 15.

The trailer features a series of adrenaline-packed stunts and bombastic dialogues with Khan leading the charge against the backdrop of some of the UAE capital’s snazziest locations. You get to see the superstar against the Yas Vice Roy Abu Dhabi and cars exploding at the Liwa Desert.

The trailer for the film, directed by Remo D’Souza, also features souped-up cars racing on the desert roads and Khan firing from all his cylinders armed with fancy gadgets.


Khan had returned to Abu Dhabi for more than a month to work on the action sequences of Race 3, the latest instalment in a hit franchise that has rich people who betray, double-cross and deceive people for a living.


“Who needs enemies when you have a family?” is one of the catch phrases from the upcoming film, which will also likely be powered by feuds within a billionaire dynasty. The characters are notorious for dialogues that are threats against their rivals.


Race 3 also stars Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem.

Hollywood action director Tom Struthers and Indian action director Anil Arasu were on call to pull off the stunts.


Race 3 will release in India on June 15. Bollywood films traditionally release a day earlier in the UAE.
