Actor Saqib Saleem is all set for his upcoming film Race 3. The film features Saqib along with actors Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah. The film is an action entertainer and is scheduled to release on the festive occasion of Eid (15 June).
In an interview with Cinespeaks, Saqib Saleem speaks to us.
Speaking on Race 3 and his character in the film, Saqib said, “Race 3 is an absolute commercial potboiler. The film is in the commercial space with lots of action sequences, hard hitting dialogues and punchlines. As an actor, I trained myself to get into the physicality of my character. I trained in jumping, kicking and boxing since I haven’t done an action film in my career. Race is a film where every character has traces of negative traits. So, I made a point to add a humanly touch to my character. I have tried to make people like my character in the film.”
On working with actors like Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor, Saqib said, “I have never done a film of such a large scale like Race 3. As an actor, I found love and acceptance on the sets of the film. When people back you, your confidence increases and that is what happened while working with Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor. They made me feel at ease and my confidence grew stronger and confidence only takes you to great heights.”
