Multi-starrer film Race 3, which is smashing all records at the box office, has been largely panned by film critics and viewers on the social media. Ever since the Salman Khan-starrer was released, memes and jokes on the film’s screenplay, dialogues, acting, music, action sequences, and direction have been hounding it.

Now, the Race 3 actor Bobby Deol has defended the movie saying “if it was that bad, it wouldn’t have fetched box office results”. Talking about the film at the Femina Miss India grand finale, he said, “There are films which are good but sometimes it doesn’t work at the box office. So, how anyone can control that?”

He continued, “I am really happy because people have appreciated the work of the entire cast of the film, including me. I think criticism affects us when we make a bad film, but I think if our film was too bad, then it wouldn’t have worked at the box office”.

“The entire team of Race 3 is really happy because the film is doing good business at the box office… What else do we want? I hope I will continue doing more films and people will appreciate my work in the same manner,” Deol further added.

The actor also went on to say that he hopes to be a part of Race 4 too.
