- Jacqueline Fernandez returns to the new movie
- This will be Salman Khan's first movie with the Race franchise
- Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem are reportedly the new additions
The report adds that actors like Aditya Roy Kapur, Sooraj Pancholi and Sidharth Malhotra were being considered for an empty slot on the Race 3 cast -which now seems to have been given to Saqib Saleem. "Saqib's role will also have negative shades to it like the rest of the cast," a source close to the production team told Pinkvilla. Daisy Shah will reportedly be paired opposite Bobby Deol.
Jacqueline has been part of the second entry to the Race franchise which hit screens in 2013. Previously directed by director duo Abbas-Mustan, the reigns for the new Race movie have made way for director-choreographer Remo D'Souza.
Salman Khan, whose first stint in the Race franchise it is, has reportedly asked for certain changes in the script. A report in DNA stated that Salman asked the makers to infuse more humour to the script and to dial down the intimate scenes.
Salman Khan has replaced Saif Ali Khan as the Race franchise headliner, who, however, has no qualms about the new cast: "Who better than Salman Khan for this? I wish both of them luck," he told PTI.
Salman Khan is currently looking forward to the release of Ek Tha Tiger, his next with Katrina Kaif.
