Salman Won’t Play Grey, Turns Down Villain’s Part In Race 3!

Race 3, which Remo d’Souza will direct , has a terrific part for the antagonist. In fact insiders say the villain’s part in Race 3 is the strongest character in  the plot.

So naturally everybody in the Race  team thought Salman would be perfect in the antagonist’s part specially since he had  never played the villain before.

But Salman , after some thought, decided to let go of  the grey part. He would  rather play the  protagonist even  if it is less hardhitting than  the villain’s part.

Says a source close to the  film, “Salman said  no to the villain’s role in Race 3.The role has now gone to his friend Aditya Pancholi.”

This is  not the first time that Salman has turned down a villainous part. Years ago he said a firm no to Abbas-Mustan’s  Baazigar which had distinct shades  of grey in it.

Baazigar proved a turning point in Shah Rukh Khan’s career.

Salman is  the pioneer of image conscious  heroism  on  screen. He has constantly  refused  to play anti-heroes and villains as he feels it’s wrong  for him to set a morally incorrect example for his fans. With the increasing growth in crime and abuse in our society, Farhan Akhtar is another hero who has now decided  he will stay away from negative parts.

On the other hand actors  like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Rajkummar Rao will play an and everything from serial killers to serial bombers because….well, someone gotta do the dirty job.
