It is a known fact that a major portion of Race 3 was shot in Abu Dhabi. While we can catch all the action shot at Abu Dhabi in the film, here are some EXCLUSIVE pictures that will give you a sneak-peek into the grandness of the schedule and the picturesque locations the film was shot.
We caught hold of some interesting behind-the-scenes pictures of Race 3. The action thriller is the latest major international production to be shot in Abu Dhabi, filming at nine locations over 23 days. The exclusive behind-the-scenes images show the stars at Abu Dhabi landmarks such as Emirates Palace, Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi, Emirates Steel, Nation Towers, Abu Dhabi Exhibition Centre, Abu Dhabi Global Market and Intercontinental Hotel Abu Dhabi. Also featured is a picture of the helicopter used in the movie from Falcon Aviation.
Interestingly, Salman Khan returned to Abu Dhabi for the shoot just a few months after he finished filming his previous release, Tiger Zinda Hai in the Emirate. A source said, “The film turned out to be a huge blockbuster and it acted as a testament to the confidence studios have in twofour54’s proven capabilities in delivering large, complex productions successfully.” The source added, “Twofour54 provided full production services as well as the support of its Government and Travel Services department and four interns also worked on the project. Salman Khan Films and Tips Industries Ltd. is also taking advantage of the 30% rebate on production spend in the Emirate from Abu Dhabi Film Commission.”
Race 3 is the third film in the popular thriller and action franchise starring, Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandes, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem. It was produced by Salman Khan Films & Tips Industries Ltd.
The film, directed by Remo D’Souza, also marked the return of leading Hollywood stunt director Tom Struthers, who relied on the help of the UAE Armed Forces for the exciting action sequences. Struthers also worked on Tiger Zinda Hai last year. Military support for Race 3 included a Blackhawk helicopter, Oshkosh trucks, NIMR military vehicles, and Humvees.
Race 3 is one of three major international productions to film in the Emirate this year, along with the latest in Tom Cruise’s high-octane action franchise Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and Saaho, starring pan-India star Prabhas.
