Salman Khan had one release in 2017 — the Kabir Khan directorial Tubelight — and he is currently working on Tiger Zinda Hai, in which he stars opposite Katrina Kaif. Now, there is speculation that the actor will be part of Race 3. Conflicting rumours followed, which suggested that Remo D’Souza would either be directing the film, or that Khan would put his dance film with D'Souza on the backburner in order to work on Race 3.
When asked about Salman Khan's casting in the film, producer Ramesh Taurani said to Indian Express, "There’s no confirmation yet. I can’t comment on it right now. But the film will go on floors this year and soon the announcement about the cast will be made."
Choreographer-director D'Souza confirmed that he is not directing Race 3. It was said that his film featuring Salman Khan was tentatively titled Dancing Dad; he will play an ageing dancer and father of a nine-year-old. D'Souza said that he specifically wanted a non-dancer for the role of the protagonist. Jacqueline Fernandez will play his dance instructor in this film.
The previous two installments of the Race franchise starred Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor in the lead roles and were action thrillers. The second installment made more than Rs 100 crore; it was the first movie released in 2013 to cross this mark. Both films were directed by Abbas-Mustan and produced by Ramesh Taurani.
