Race 3 will help me connect with the audiences once again: Saqib Saleem


Saqib Saleem has acted in a number of films since his film debut but the actor believes that it will be the Salman Khan-starrer “Race 3” which will help him  connect with the audiences. The actor debuted as an actor with “Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge” in 2011 and since then has worked in films such as “Mere Dad Ki Maruti”, “Bombay Talkies” and “Hawaa Hawaai”.

Though his performances in the films were praise by the critics, none of them proved to be a box office hit, and Saqib now feels that courtesy the superstar’s huge fan following, the dry spell for him will come to an end.

“Though my work has been liked in the films that I have done so far but none of them have done the numbers that astound anybody. The films have never graduated to the next step, where people have said, ‘what a film’. So I needed that transition happening in life. I am 30-year-old now, having done few films earlier but I am taking ‘Race 3’ as my second innings in my career,” Saqib said.

The actor is aware of the fact that the third instalment of the “Race” franchise will reach out to the mass audience and he feels grateful to have got this opportunity to be part of the film. “This film is an opportunity for me to showcase my talent to that many people. I am hoping to reach out to a more wider audience through the sheer reach of Salman bhai, Bobby and Anil Kapoor sir.”
