The video features on location interviews with the cast and crew, including Bollywood icon Salman Khan, as they reflect on the experience of filming the latest instalment of the Bollywood blockbuster franchise in the Emirate earlier this year. The action thriller is the latest major international production to be shot in Abu Dhabi, filming at nine locations over 23 days. The exclusive behind-the-scenes footage shows the stars at Abu Dhabi landmarks such as Emirates Palace, Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi, Emirates Steel, Nation Towers, Falcon Aviation, Leaf Tower, Mussafah, Liwa Desert, and Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. Leading Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor used Emirates Palace as his personal residence during the shoot.
Abu Dhabi is becoming the go to location for action with renowned Hollywood stunt director Tom Struthers returning to Abu Dhabi after working on Tiger Zinda Hai’ last year. Struthers again relied on the help of the UAE Armed Forces, working closely with them for the exciting action sequences.
‘Race 3’ features incredible machines, including a helicopter from Falcon Aviation, a Bugatti Veyron and Ferraris, to shoot high-octane action scenes as they race through the Liwa desert under Struthers watchful eye.
