What happened next is known to all! Though film earned pretty good amount at the box office, it was slammed by critics/fans horribly. In a recent media interaction, when Abbas-Mustan was asked to comment on Race 3, here's what the duo said:
Abbas-Mustan On Race 3
Director duo Abbas Mustan, who directed the first two films in Race franchise, said that a movie's success or failure depends on the audience. Though Race 3 did well at the box office, it was not received as warmly as the previous installments featuring Saif Ali Khan.
No Grudges Against Salman & Mr Taurani
When asked if there is little disappointment with Race3, Abbas said, "They are all our friends, we share good equation with Salman Khan, Ramesh Taurani (producer). We wanted the film to do well. We did wish the film should do well commercially as it was our franchise. And the film did well commercially."
