Race 3: Atif Aslam continues his association with action-thriller franchise; will sing track penned by Salman Khan
Atif Aslam has previously lent his voice for other Race films like 'Pehli Nazar Mein' for Race (2008) and 'Beintehaa' and 'Allah Duhai Hai' for Race 2 (2013).
With tidbits of the upcoming action bonanza flick Race 3 being splashed all over the internet, the excitement seems to be soaring real high. The makers are not leaving any stone unturned to cash in on the hype around the film. After a stellar cast, they have now roped in Atif Aslam to sing a track that has been written by none other than Salman Khan.
In a report by Mumbai Mirror, it is revealed that Aslam — who has been a Race regular with chartbuster songs like 'Pehli Nazar Mein' for Race (2008) and 'Beintehaa' and 'Allah Duhai Hai' for Race 2 (2013) — will lend his voice for an exclusive song for the film.
Confirming the news, producer Ramesh Taurani said, "Atif has been a part of every Race film and we felt he would be perfect for this romantic song. It will be a surprise for the audience," reports Mumbai Mirror.
The music director of the film, Vishal Mishra, informed that Salman has written yet another song, for Race 3, that they are currently working upon.
Race 3 is being helmed by choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza and stars Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala. The film is slated to release this year during the festive season of Eid on 15 June.
Directed by Tushar Hiranandani, the film will go on floors in July.
