Salman Khan will be playing the lead in “Race 3” and the actor will once again share the screen space with Jacqueline Fernandez.

Salman and Jacqueline have previously worked in 2014 movie “Kick” directed by Sajid Nadiadwala.

The 32-year-old actor, who was in New Delhi to promote her upcoming film “A Gentleman” told PTI, “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’.”

Abbas-Mustan directed the first two films, but according to the reports choreographer-director Remo D’ Souza has been roped in to helm the third movie. No formal announcements have been made yet.
