After releasing character-posters introducing individual artiste from the film, the latest poster of Race 3 has all of them together, including Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem.

The expressions of the characters and the mysterious setting go with the whodunit theme.

However, the most striking feature of the poster is its punch line, that reads: 'You don’t need enemies when you have a family'. Now, having a family for enemies is not something new, but to outrightly compare the two is not often seen in mainstream Hindi cinema. This certainly raises the bar of expectations on the story of the film.

Given its track record, a film in Race franchise is bound to have an unsuspected negative character. While there are chances that this time Salman Khan might portray such a character, it might not be healthy for the film to have him play a negative role. His fans will find it difficult to see him not 'being human'.

As the poster speaks of a family, it adds fuel to the rumours that Anil Kapoor will be seen playing Salman’s father. A few months ago Kapoor was asked if he would be seen as the superstar’s father in Race 3, while he didn't nod a yes, he didn’t deny it either.

As per the previous posters, Freddy Daruwala will be the prime antagonist in the film. He, not surpisingly, doesn’t feature in the 'family' poster.

Directed by Remo D’Souza, Race 3 is all set to be released on 15 June on the occasion of Eid.
