The game includes numerous obstacles which include security alarms, lasers, manholes, street corners and more. The game has to be played in a stealth style and demands escape from cops. Replying to a query by reporters at the launch function, Salman said he was not very interested in games. “At our house, Arhaan (son of Arbaaz Khan), and Nirvaan and Yohan (both sons of Sohail Khan) are good in it. I am interested in sports and not games,” he added.
The game was announced by the actor and Disney India’s Interactive business.”We wanted to create an interactive experience of our movie for fans. The mobile game developed by Disney India is exciting and easy to play, it is engaging. I hope my fans will enjoy playing the game,” the actor said.Actress Jacqueline Fernandez and director Sajid Nadiadwala were also present at the event. Salman is the latest entrant to virtual club wherein stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Hritik Roshan, Rajinikanth had already made a foray by launching games of their respective films like ‘Ra.One’, ‘Krrish 3’ and ‘Kochadaiyaan’.
