Bollywood star Aditya Pancholi has been in the news in current times because of Kangana Ranaut. But there’s other news on his front now. The actor has started doing yoga again and given up smoking – and seemingly, it’s for a movie! While there’s news that none of the actors, except Jacqueline Fernandez, will be repeated in one of the hottest movies nowadays – Remo D Souza’s Race 3, produced by Ramesh Taurani, there’s a buzz that Aditya Pancholi may again come back as a villain in it.
A source reveals, “Only Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez have been announced as the principle cast of Race 3 till now as the makers have maintained a tight-lipped silence about it. Buzz is that Salman is putting the project together and he wants to make the pronouncements next month once everything is finalized. Till then, he has asked the makers to keep everything under wraps. Aditya is very close to Ramesh Taurani and Salman, as they have acted together in Bodyguard, Hero and Jai Ho and Aditya’s son had debuted as an actor in Salman’s home production Hero (2017). While the story of Race 3 is completely different from Race and Race 2, there’s a strong possibility that Aditya may play a ruthlessly negative character in Race 3, he won’t play stylish mafia head Godfather Anza, which he had played in Race 2.”
Fascinatingly, the actor has started building up his physique in current times as he’s keen to lose weight. Pancholi has not only quit smoking but also started yoga again under his trainer. Aditya Pancholi reveals, “Nobody has been approached me as yet for Race 3. I have to first get into shape before I sign any film. I can’t face the camera in the shape I am right now. I have started doing yoga, jogging and walking again and looking after myself. I have my yoga Sir. I have never worked out in a gym. If I go it’s only for jogging and weight-lifting. I take my inspiration from my son Sooraj who has been into fitness from the age of 14. I have quit smoking from this week. I haven’t missed it at all. I guess it’s all in the mind.”
Ramesh Taurani tells, “It’s not true. Aditya’s not there in the film. There’s lots of talk happening about the casting but only Salman and Jacqueline has signed the film.”
Race 3 goes on floor in Mumbai from the first week of November.
