Actor Saqib Saleem, who’ll next appear in Race 3, says he has started doing the ‘Ryan Reynolds Deadpool workout’ for his upcoming venture. However, the details of the character he will be playing have been kept under wraps. It has been revealed that the actor is undergoing intense workout to get in shape for his role.
"I train for about two hours a day. It starts with stretching leading to cardio and then hitting the weights. In the end, I finish with some core training. Besides this, I throw in some yoga at least twice a week to keep the body flexibility intact.
"I have started this new workout called 'Ryan Reynolds Deadpool workout', which is like really difficult. But I'm sure it will get me the desired result," Saqib said in a statement.
He has joined superstar Salman Khan, Bobby Deol and Jacqueline Fernandez for the third instalment of the hit franchise.
On sharing the screen space with Salman for the first time, he said: "Salman 'bhai' has always been a huge inspiration. I have always looked up to him, so I am really looking forward to do a film with him and share the screen space with him. But I don't look at it as pressure.
"In fact, I feel blessed to be working alongside him in a film and see it as an opportunity to learn and become better. It will be super fun.
"I have met him a couple of times over the years and he has always been very supportive and encouraging. I will get to know him more once we start shooting. So, can't wait to start this 'race'."
Directed by Remo D'Souza, "Race 3" is expected to go on floors soon. It is expected to be Salman’s Eid offering next year. Apart from Salman Khan and Saqib Saleem, Daisy Shah and Bobby Deol will also be seen in the movie. It will be produced by Ramesh Taurani.
The actor is ruling the Instagram with the pictures of his chiselled body. Let's check them out.
