With Salman Khan coming onboard for Race 3, the franchise got bigger and better. Ever since the news broke, Race 3 has been making headlines for all the speculation around who will be playing the female lead in the movie.
While Jacqueline Fernandez being locked for the movie, names of Daisy Shah and Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu have been doing the rounds for the second and the third lead.
Now, another name to have popped up for the role is Pooja Hegde, who is said to have been approached for the movie. However, nothing has been confirmed as yet.
A source reveals that while Pooja hasn't signed any contract as yet, she has met Salman twice or thrice and will most definitely be part of the franchise.
Reports also suggested that Sidharth Malhotra will also be part of the film. To this, a source earlier revealed to a leading daily, "Yes, Sidharth has been approached for the part. Salman is very fond of Sidharth and suggested his name for the film. This is one of the biggest films that Sid has been offered. It will also be his first franchise.”
The source added, “It looks like both, Salman and Sidharth, will be fighting for Jackie. This Race franchise will have more twists than all the previous installments. Sid has not yet signed on the dotted line. He is still discussing it, but who would say no to such a film?”
