Filling the shoes of Abbas – Mustan

He also made sure that the ace directors were all cool with Remo filling their shoes and even they have wished the new director for blockbuster success.
On handling the big star cast
On working with the big star cast, the director said that it was a massive experience working with such a big cast. He added only because of this team he was able to pull this off otherwise it would have been really tough for him to get the final product. He said that they worked hard on action sequences and few songs to appeal visually to the audience.
Sequels are easy to make
Talking about the sequel trend in Bollywood of late, Remo said, “it is easy to make sequels because it has recall value and people are very much familiar with the genre”. He added that sequels should not be made for the sake of it unless the genre allows you to make one.
As the movie gears up for the release, the director has already started to work on upcoming dance film with the superstar. With huge expectations, we have to wait till June 15 to know if Race 3 will make a good sequel or not.
