Actress Daisy Shah, who is busy promoting her forthcoming film “Race 3”, says that she didn’t want to disappoint her mentor and co-star Salman Khan in the action film.

Interacting with media on Wednesday during a promotional event, Daisy, who started her career in the entertainment industry as an assistant to choreographer Ganesh Acharya for 10 years before Salman gave her break in “Jai Ho” before she is again sharing screen space with him, said: “I think life is about challenges. You have to face challenge since your birth.


“For me, to get break in ‘Jai Ho’ was a challenge and my journey after that depends on my work and luck so, I think blessing of my parents has helped to reach this stage and I am really fortunate that Salman Khan lifted me from one level and helped me to reach another level.

“After that things depend upon my hard work to lift that level further. Salman Khan is loved by a million people and if he has put his faith on me so, I don’t want to disappoint him. Today, there is sense of confidence and belief in me only because Salman sir believe in my abilities.”

Sharing her experiences on the film, Daisy said: “We are very thankful to the audience that they are giving a good response to our film’s trailer and songs, so it feels nice. Only name ‘Race’ is matching with the earlier parts of this franchise, but other than that, everything is different..”

She said that this film not only has a new star-cast, but its story is also completely different, since the earlier films were about two brothers but “in this film, there is a story of entire family. Flavour of the film is same and this film also has many twists and turns”.

About her character, Daisy said: “I am playing character of Sanjana in ‘Race 3’ and it is very a dark character in the initial phase of the film but towards the end, it gets transformed into a positive character.”

Seen doing high-octane action sequences in “Race 3”, she, about her experience doing action for the first time, said: “I had so much of fun doing action for ‘Race 3’. All of us know that for actresses in Bollywood only get few scenes and songs but ‘Race’ is one such franchise where female actors are given equal importance and they are presented equally with their male counterparts so, this film is not about any specific actor, it’s about performance.

“Doing stunts all by myself has been deliberate decision because I wanted to do all stunts by myself because female actors don’t get opportunity to work in action films and I think when you get such an opportunity, then you have to make most of it. I fractured my ankle while practicing for an action scene and due to that, we had to postpone fight sequence between me and Jacqueline (Fernandez) for one month but when we shot for that, it came out very well as we got some extra time to practice.”

Canadian researchers have discovered an overlooked gene that plays a major role in the development of antibodies

Canadian researchers have discovered an overlooked gene that plays a major role in the development of antibodies, which help the immune system recognize and fight viruses including SARS-CoV-2, bacteria and other causes of infectious disease. The gene -- FAM72A -- facilitates production of high-quality antibodies by enabling the effect of an enzyme called AID (for Activation-Induced Deaminase), the researchers showed.

Immunologists have known for two decades that AID is essential to produce antibodies capable of clearing infections, but the full mechanism of its effect has remained unknown. "Our findings answer the long-standing question of how AID does its work," said Alberto Martin, a professor of immunology at the University of Toronto's Temerty Faculty of Medicine. "FAM72A helps AID to promote mutations in antibody genes that are essential for the development of effective antibodies," he added.
