The actress, who will next be seen in A Gentleman releasing this week, was speaking at a promotional event of the film when she mentioned Salman Khan as her co-star for Race 3. Jacqueline, who has quite a few films in the pipeline, was talking about her busy roster and said: "After Judwaa 2 I am working on Drive, that is Tarun Mansukhani's next with Sushant Singh Rajput and then it is Salman's Race 3," reports PTI.
