Actor Saif Ali Khan says he was offered a role in the third
installment of the "Race" franchise, but didn't take it up because he didn't
feel the connection with the part he was offered.
"(Producer) Ramesh Taurani said I'm making a completely different movie this time with a totally different story. I was offered a part but Salman Khan is the best thing to happen to anybody. He's the biggest star in the country," Saif said at a press conference here.
"I didn't feel a connection myself with the part I was offered. So, I decided to do something else."
Saif was seen playing a protagonist in "Race", which released in 2008 and was also a part of the "Race 2" in 2013.
The "Phantom" actor was here to promote his forthcoming film "Kaalakaandi", which will hit the screens on Friday.
