Everyone is aware that Salman Khan has been roped in to play the lead. Salman Khan had also rejected the iconic role of "Raj" that made Shahrukh Khan, a superstar overnight! The role eventually went to Shah Rukh Khan which got him the needed recognition. However it's not the first time, Salmna rejected a good film owing to his negative character! According to Deccan Chronicle, the villain's role is the strongest character in the movie's plot and insiders said that it is more important than the protagonist of Race 3.

Salman has chosen the hero's role and passed the negative role to his friend, Aditya Pancholi. He will be seen in Abbas-Mustan's action franchise Race 3 along with Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandes.

Earlier, reports had stated that the antagonist's role was also offered to Amitabh Bachchan, but the megastar had turned it down.


Bobby Deol has been seen in a number of films in the past years before Race 3 but they have failed to leave an impact on the audiences.

October 11 (ANI): Since the time Salman Khan has been roped in for upcoming movie "Race 3", it has become one of the most anticipated movies this year. So naturally, everybody in the Race team thought that Salman would be flawless in the antagonist's part, especially since he had never played a villain before.

Talking about the professional front of Salman Khan, he is next going to be seen in the film Tiger Zinda Hai.
