Jacqueline Fernandez Will Return To Race 3 With Salman Only If Gentleman Clicks

By right she should be in Race 3 with Salman Khan. After all Salman has shut down Remo D’Souza’s dance  film and translocated the director to his project Race 3 with Ramesh Taurani. And since Jacqueline Fernandez was the leading lady of Remo’s dance film with Salman she should rightfully  moved to Race 3 along with Remo

But here’s  the thing. Salman isn’t quite ready to make that move with Ms Fernandez. Of course she was part of Salman’s  big blockbuster Kick.  But she was  more the Kick producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala’s choice—they had worked together earlier in Housefull 3 and Dishoom—than Salman.

Ever since Kick  the ever-enterprising Ms Fernandez has been making regular trips to Salman’s residence ,keeping the faith alive, so to speak.  But Salman made it clear that the aggressively ambitious JF won’t  be  any part of Kick 2.

And  now there is  a rider to JF’s  presence  in SK’s Race 3.

She will be allowed into this huge project only if her next release A Gentleman works at the boxoffice.

Says a  source in the  know, “A lot is at stake in Salman’s forthcoming films.  He can’t afford to slip up after Tubelight, not  for his own sake as  much as his audience and distributors. Fernandez is most keen to be in Race 3. But Salman will exercise that option only  if A Gentleman works at the  boxoffice.”

The Siddharth Malhotra-Jacqueline  Fernandez  action-romance comes this Friday along with a cluster of  big releases including the new Ryan Reynolds actioner The Hitman’s Bodyguard. Whether A Gentleman works at the  boxoffice  or not,  would depend entirely on how inclined the audiences are to swing their tastes away from the desi problem of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha to the  dystopian dishiness of an espionage thriller featuring two goodlooking airheads in the lead.

Salman’s team is monitoring the developments at  the  boxoffice. If A Gentleman  flops the role in Race 3 is likely to go to Deepika Padukone who like Jacqueline was part of part Race 2.
