Is Saif Ali Khan not a part of Ramesh Taurani’s Race 3?

Well, according to the latest buzz, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s hubby dearest may not star in the third installment of the successful franchise Race. Read on to find more

It’s a known fact that Saif Ali Khan shares great rapport with Ramesh Taurani. After working together in Race and Race 2, the duo was now looking forward to Race 3. But looks like Khan will not be a part for the third installment of Race. Reportedly, the Bullett Raja actor wanted Rs 16 crore as his remuneration but he was being offered a little less than his expectation. We hear Ramesh Taurani was ready to pay Saifu Rs 10 crore and also a percentage profit subject to realisation. While talking to a tabloid, a source said, “They could not arrive at an agreement over the price and now Taurani has decided to go ahead with the film but without Saif.”

When the tabloid contacted Saif, the Cocktail actor confirmed the news and said, “Yes, it’s true, the price Taurani was offering me was too low.” However, the Nawab of Pataudi claimed that Ramesh Tauran hasn’t told him to opt out from the film and that he could still be part of Race 3. Well, we certainly hope Saif’s association with the Race franchise doesn’t go kaput. After all, last year his only hit was Race 2. So wouldn’t it be better if Khan stopped acting pricey?
