Saqib Saleem working with Salman's trainer for Race 3
Race 3 stars Salman Khan, Bobby Deol and Jacqueline Fernandez
Actor Saqib Saleem says he is training with superstar Salman Khan's trainer for his upcoming film Race 3. Saqib has gone through a transformation in terms of his physique for the film, which also stars Salman Khan, Bobby Deol and Jacqueline Fernandez.
"Race is very close to my heart and getting in shape for it has been my priority. Four months of rigorous workout, yoga and avoiding food that I love have got me the desired results," says the actor.
"The thriller is all about action and stunts. I want an agile and fit body to be able to perform them all. I've been doing action workshops on kicking and punching. Besides training with my own trainer, I'm also training with Rakesh Udiyar, Salman Khan's trainer, for the action sequences," he adds.
For the third instalment of the hit franchise, the actor gave up eating some of his favourite foods. "I am going to feast on butter chicken and naan once I finish with the shoot for the film. I've been missing murg makhani and biryani a lot, so I will have one cheat meal before I get back to training for the two month schedule in Abu Dhabi," he says.
