“Yes, Remo’s film will have Jacqueline and me. She’s a superbly talented dancer and she will do a brilliant job," said Salman in a statement given to DNA.

The film will have Khan play an ageing dancer. The actor also revealed that he will play father to a nine-year-old in the film.

The child enrolls the father in a dance competition. The father has no other choice, but to learn dancing, owing to a promise he had made to his wife (now dead) that he would fulfill every single wish of their daughter.

This is when Jackie comes in as a tutor and helps Khan master the art of dancing.

Khan is currently shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai. He will begin prepping for his dancer role as soon as he wraps up the Ali Abbas Zafar film. Fernandez is finishing the last leg of Judwaa 2, alongside Taapsee Pannu and Varun Dhawan. She will, too, get into training mode for her role.
