After months of speculations and insane amount of promotions by Salman Khan, Tips Official and Salman Khan movies finally dropped the most awaited trailer of the year – Race 3.
Directed by part choreographer part filmmaker Remo D’souza, Race 3 trailer features a bunch of famous Bollywood actors like Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, and more. With a star-cast like this and third installment in an already successful franchise, you’d expect a full Bollywood dhamaka movie to set Box office records this Eid. Perhaps, Salman can break his own record?
Salman announced the date for the trailer on Twitter.
But on the date of the day release he tried to troll his fans by saying it’s doubtful that trailer will release. Instead, he posted trailer for previous Race movies. Seems like he was having a bit of fun with his fans.
Later, Race 3 cast attended the trailer launch event in Mumbai. The event was live streamed on social media in 360 format. It makes Race 3 the first ever movie to do that in Bollywood. The trailer was unveiled in front of a large gathering of Bloggers, stars, and social media influencers.

However, the trailer bombed terribly on social media. Although it has received over 12 million views in just two days, but it’s being called one of the worst trailers ever. And it makes sense, because the trailer looked highly unprofessional with a lot of mistakes. A lot of critics are extremely disappointed with it. People on social media are making hilarious memes mocking it, expressing their disappointment in their own way.
It wasn’t just the badly edited trailer and its mistakes. Credit mostly goes to the writing team. The dialogues look very immature and childish that even a school kid can write. For instance, there’s a dialogue of Daisy Shah which goes, “Our business is our business. None of your business.” Which made everyone cringe so hard that it’s now a viral meme on social media.
Race 3 releases next month and they have a lot of work to do before it blows out of proportions.
I think they should release trailer number 2 to promote their movie, very much like the trend in Hollywood. It’s not too popular in Bollywood but it could work.
Having said that, this high octane fast and furious like family revenge drama movie is definitely going to break Box Office records because people in India love pointless action movies with whistle worthy moments. And sadly, all Salman movies are created keeping that in mind. So it’s a safe bet that Race 3 is going to have a life-time earning of over 300 crore without a doubt.
