Race 3 climax was shot in just 5 days, courtesy Salman Khan – read details

From what we saw in the action-packed trailer of Race 3, we could only wonder the amount of hard work put in by the team over a number of days to make it happen. But it comes as a surprise that the climax action sequence was shot in just five days! Yes, ideally it would have taken 10 days, but Salman made in happen in half the time. We see both Salman Khan and Bobby Deol in the climax scene performing high octane stunts, glimpses of the sequence are seen in the trailer where Salman and Bobby are seen leading a stylish walk. So how was it possible to achieve this feat?

Well the sequence was shot with three units simultaneously. A set of actors were continuously shooting on the three units and this is how they managed to wrap the schedule in just five days. That’s quite something, we must say. The climax action sequence was a very crucial sequence featuring the entire cast. Seen in the sequence will be Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem. It will showcase the high octane action sequences that include explosives and intense car chase sequence.

As there were explosions and high octane chase sequences involved, high security calling for military was stationed on the sets in Abu Dhabi. Director Remo D’souza shares, “I wanted a very real treatment for Race 3. The action and explosions that you see in the film were all created on set. Fortunately, I had my team supporting my vision completely and delivering their best.”

The entire climax and action sequence has been choreographed by Tom Struthers and Anal Arasu.

Produced by Salman Khan Films and Ramesh Taurani under the banner of Tips Films, Race 3 is directed by Remo D’souza and will hit theatres on June 15, 2018.

Here’s the story behind the making of Selfish song from Race 3

Salman Khan is one of those who have the most transparent vision, says composer-singer Vishal Mishra who has worked with the superstar for Race 3. Salman made his debut as a lyricist with the track Selfish from the forthcoming film. “I think he is one of those people who has the most transparent vision ever. His language skills are amazing. He was very clear that he wanted a simple love song from a woman’s point of view,” Vishal told IANS.

“The song we envisioned was always about being selfish and falling in love as it’s such a beautiful thing. Salman Sir put down the thoughts in words so wonderfully and I am happy that we could create a melody around it,” he added.

Selfish brought together so many stars – Salman as a lyricist, Atif Aslam and Iulia Vantur as singers. How was it working as a team? “Selfish started 18 months back when Salman Sir and I were jamming on some lines that he had written on a piece of paper. Then over the course of time it became a song which fortunately fitted perfectly during a situation in Race 3. Salman Sir has been like my co-composer in this song and once we had the melody ready, I was sure no one could do justice to it like Atif Aslam. He too loved the song the moment he heard it.” ALSO READ: Selfish song from Race 3: Salman Khan’s beautiful lyrics and Iulia Vantur’s melodious voice make this love ditty hummable

Then Iulia stepped in for the female vocals. “After her dubbing, we did orchestras in Mumbai and Chennai with 50 to 60 musicians,” the composer explained.

Salman contributed a lot to Selfish but “fortunately”, there were no creative differences between them. “Salman Sir’s experience of 30 years is invaluable in any aspect of filmmaking and working so closely with him on this song has only made me admire his work ethic even more. We were always on the same page as we started out with the same thinking,” said Vishal.

He worked with Iulia in Veere… also. How is she as a singer? “Iulia’s voice has a beautiful texture and it sounds very distinct. In Veere Di Wedding too, I needed a western sounding voice and Iulia fit the bill,” he said. “I had worked with Iulia for a Marathi film directed by Mahesh Manjrekar as well. She has a fantastic voice and sky is the limit for her,” he added.

Composing music for Veere Di Wedding and Race 3 have been “great experiences” for him. “In Veere…, I worked with (producer) Rhea Kapoor who is innovative and independent whereas Salman Sir is so clear about what he has in mind. Composing for films is all about being guided by the script and I try to keep the situation in mind while making any song,” he said.

“The pressure was more for Race 3 as the franchise’s last two outings had great music. Luckily, things are looking great for Race 3 too,” he added. He feels he is in the best phase right now.

“After ‘Race 3’, I will be working for Yamla Pagla Deewana 3 where Rekhaji has rapped for me. Salman Sir, Dharmendraji and Sonakshi Sinha have sung for me. The choreography is by Remo (D’souza) sir. It’s nothing short of a carnival,” he said.

Trending Tunes: Salman Khan’s Selfish and Kareena Kapoor’s Tareefan are a hit this week

We are here with yet another segment of Trending Tunes. Along with a new song, we have a brand new lyricist in the industry – Salman Khan. He has penned the words for a song in his film Race 3, which is slated to release on June 15. So, let us begin. Here are our top 5 songs of the week. And as our regular request goes, please turn up the volume and let go off your worries for a few minutes.

Selfish – Race 3

So, Salman has turned lyricist with this romantic track. He teaches us to take time off from the mundane life and think about yourself. A beautiful thought told so well through a song. The number has been crooned by Atif Aslam and Iulia Vantur which makes it even more beautiful. Check out the most popular song of the week!

Tareefan – Veere Di Wedding

The song is on top of pretty much all the music charts. Crooned by Badshah and composed by Qaran, this club number is very peppy and fills you with energy, right away.

Chavanprash – Bhavesh Joshi Superhero

Arjun Kapoor as item boy! We did not see that coming. The lyrics of this song are as wacky as the choreography. Also, get ready to fall in love with Arjun all over again. He does full justice to the quirky vibe of the song. While this song might not become an obvious chartbuster, we’re are damn sure that it will garner a cult following.

Bhangra Ta Sajda – Veere Di Wedding

Next up is the most vibrant song. Bhangra Ta Sajda is a lovely twist on the popular wedding song. The new age lyrics will speak to the millennial audience. And it is Neha Kakkar, guys! Just for that we can listen to this one on loop.

Ae Watan – Raazi

We have earlier praised this song, in other segments of Trending Tunes, but after watching the movie, Raazi, we are impressed all over again. The patriotic number holds a more valuable position altogether after we have seen it in context of the film. Arijit Singh gives a voice to Gulzar’s lyrics and it is magical. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy need to come out more often. Their last memorable album was Dil Dhadakne Do.

Neha Dhupia’s pregnancy rumours; Salman Khan turns lyricist for Race 3 – meet the top 5 newsmakers of this week

And it’s that time of the week when we tell you who made the maximum amount of noise in Bollywood this week! Movie promotions, secret weddings, link-up rumours, pregnancy talk are the only kind of news that have been buzzing the internet since the last few weeks and this week was no different. To start with, we have Salman Khan’s Race 3 that has been topping the headlines almost every other day with its songs and stills. Neha Dhupia’s sudden wedding with Angad Bedi is continuing to raise suspicions around the actress being pregnant. Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli are among the many others who dedicated this week to being fit by taking up the fitness challenge. Aamir Khan made a confession how desperately he wanted to do Sanju before it went to Ranbir Kapoor; while Sara Ali Khan has found herself in a legal soup even before making her Bollywood debut. Let us tell you a bit more about all of this, one news at a time.

Salman turns lyricist with Race 3

The latest song ‘Selfish’ from Race 3 is written by none other than Salman Khan. The superstar, for the first time, turned lyricist for a song and boy, is he a good one at that? “Ek baar baby selfish hoke, apne liye jeeyo na” is the lead line of the track which has got quite a few listeners hooked in no time. “While discussing the creative for the song, I penned down a few thoughts on paper in sync with the plot of the film, which is about the selfishness within the family. When the music director Vishal Mishra heard it, he got extremely excited and said he will come back with a tune for the same. I said, ‘But this is a part of a conversation and not lyrics’. However, he insisted to use the thoughts as it is for the song. Everyone loved the thoughts and wanted it to be used for the song.”, said Salman when he was asked what probed him to write this song which also features Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah.

Neha Dhupia pregnant or not??

Where some believe in Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi’s happily ever after. Many suspect they got married because Neha is pregnant. An online portal even revealed how the couple had to plead and convince their families to get them married immediately; which is why the wedding was so hush-hush. However, Neha’s father rubbished the reports saying, “No no.. there is no such thing at all. Since the two got married early, people are thinking otherwise. But there is no such thing. People will keep talking about things and spread rumors as per their wish.” Neha and Angad too, ignored the rumours, and gave their first interview as husband and wife with much love and hope for this new beginning in their life. PS: Angad did talk about raising a kid to only prove how he is ready for parenthood, whenever that happens. You can read his confession HERE

Anushka takes up her “BUBZ” Virat’s fitness challenge

With everyone including Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan taking up the new social-viral challenge #HumFitTohIndiaFit, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli too got their game face on by flaunting their fitness prowess. Virat challenged Anushka by revealing his favourite workout routine and Anushka being super excited accepted his challenge. But it’s Anushka’s nickname for Virat that grabbed more attention. She called him “Bubz” in the very beginning of her fitness video and well, the rest as you know is a hundred times aww with everyone vouching for their unmatched cuteness. You can watch the video HERE

What if Aamir played Sanjay Dutt in Sanju?

A lot has been said about Aamir rejecting Sunil Dutt’s role in Sanju. We finally know why Aamir turned it down as the actor himself reveals, “He (Hirani) approached me with the script and I loved it. He wanted me to play Dutt saab’s role. It is a fantastic role and the story is largely on the father-son relationship. But Sanju’s role is unbelievable. So as an actor, I told Raju that Sanjay Dutt’s role is so wonderful that it won my heart. So in this film I can’t do any other role but Sanjay Dutt’s, which of course I cannot do because Ranbir (Kapoor) is playing it. So, do not offer me anything.” Fair enough, isn’t it?

Legal mess for Sara Ali Khan

In a sudden turn of events, director Abhishek Kapoor has dragged his Kedarnath actress Sara Ali Khan to court summoning the dispute over date issues. As per TOI report, the producer complaints that in 2017 Abhishek took Sara Ali Khan on board when she signed the contract last September. Now as per the makers’ plea in court, Sara had earlier given a nod to be available on all the dates throughout the shoot. But when the makers informed her that the shooting of Kedarnath will go on till May to July 5, her agent said that she won’t be available in June as she’ll start filming for Ranveer Singh’s Simmba. Now, Abhishek Kapoor wants the court to look into the matter and let her know that she can’t start any other film until she finishes Kedarnath. In fact, Abhishek has also asked HC to ask Sara to pay Rs 5 crore for breaching the contract and making damages.
