Anil Kapoor is the only actor who has been a constant face in Race franchise. While the first two Race instalments featured Saif Ali Khan in lead role, the latest and the third one has Salman Khan. Anil Kapoor believes that his involvement has brought mass appeal to the film.
Asked how different the new film is from Race and Race 2, Anil said: "Though the world of the film is the same because it is the same franchise, involvement of Salman has brought mass appeal to Race 3.
"The story is also more accessible to the larger audience, especially Salman's fan following. While the first two stories of the film were directed by Abbas-Mustan, Remo D'souza who is directing this time has also brought his own touch to the treatment of the story." Giving an insight into the film, he said: "I think this time the story is more interesting because the conflict, betrayal, drama and everything is happening among the family members.
"The fact is that your family members know all your strengths and weaknesses more than outsiders. So, no one can break you more than your own family. The story revolves around it." The film has intense action scenes too.
"Salman's fans are waiting for such scenes to watch in the theatre. We had to make a film that not only keeps the world of 'Race' intact but also satisfies Salman's fans. I think Shiraz (Ahmed), the writer of the film, did that for us because he is the common thread for all the three films," said Anil.
Race 3 is slated to hit theatres on June 15.
