Here's Jacqueline's post:

Jacqueline has put her heart and soul in the preparation of Race 3, per Salman Khan, who headlines the film's cast. "The kicks they have given are lethal. They have really, really trained for it. Both of them - stretching and kicking and all that stuff - they have done that," Salman told news agency PTI during a recent media interaction.

Race 3, which is directed by Remo D'Souza, is Jacqueline's second film with Salman after Kick and with Remo after A Flying Jatt. Race 3 is a reboot of the Race series which was headlined by Saif Ali Khan. Jacqueline and Anil Kapoor have been retained from the previous films, however, they have new onscreen characters.

Race 3 promises high octane action sequences and superb stunts from other members too, which also include Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala.

Race 3 opens in theatres on June 15.
