Actor-producer Salman Khan will be distributing his upcoming Eid release Race 3. The actor is a co-producer of the film and also plays a key character in the film.
Salman started producing films under the Salman Khan Films banner with Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Race 3, jointly produced by Salman Khan Films headed by Salman's mother Salma Khan, will be distributed by his father Salim Khan, who will personally look into it.
Two leading distributors were pitching to bag the distribution rights of the film. However, Salman inked the deal himself, the film's spokesperson said in a statement.
One of the most anticipated films of the season, Race 3 also features Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem, Daisy Shah and Anil Kapoor. The third film in the Race franchise, the film's trailer gained a lot of buzz when it released last week.
Directed by Rem D'Souza, Race 3 is produced by Tips films and will release in theatres on 15th June.
