Saif Ali Khan, who has featured in two instalments of the Bollywood franchise Race, says who better than superstar Salman Khan to replace him in the third movie. Ramesh Taurani has reportedly announced that the franchise will move ahead without Saif, and Salman will play the lead instead.
Saif was asked at the launch of the trailer of Chef, about Race 3 and the new casting of Salman.
"Actually Ramesh had told me last year that he wants to make Race 3, and wanted to take up a new cast. I love Rameshji, and who better than Salman Khan for this. I wish them both very good luck... I have not been approached," he said.
Meanwhile, Saif is excited about Chef, which is inspired by Jon Favreau's eponymous film. The makers have made necessary changes to add an Indian touch to the story. The trailer of the film showcases love between family, specially between a father and a son.
When asked about his relation with his youngest son Taimur and how he maintains his family life in the busy schedule, Saif said, "In fact, the film is also about giving time to important things in life. While working, I would like to do 7 to 7 shifts if I can. That would be good, so that I can see him early in the morning and when I come home, I get to spend decent amount of time with Taimur. If we shoot 9-9 or if we have the wrong shifts, then sometimes we don't get to see our kids at all."
