The third instalment of the Race franchise has been in news for Salman Khan. A few days ago, there were reports stating that the superstar might not be a part of the project, but it is now being said that he's ready for a script narration.

The makers of Race 3 do not want news from early stages to spill out in the media and therefore, are making sure that none of the discussions get leaked out for people to gossip on. However, there has been information that the producers have come back with a bound script to narrate it to Salman and he's ready for it.

Earlier, when they had narrated the rough idea to the actor, he asked them to approach him only when they have a finished, bound script in hand, Box Office India reported.

About Salman's role: he will, for the first time essay a negative role and the effort is to make as stylish as possible. Just after the news of Salman replacing Saif Ali Khan in the successful action-thriller franchise broke, there was noise about how the Bigg Boss 10 host may opt out of the project as playing a grey character onscreen may affect his off-screen image.

Who will play Salman's lady love in the film? "The producers have already been in talks with Yami and they are keen on having her on board. They are waiting for Yami's confirmation now," a source informed SpotboyE.

In other news, Salman has just wrapped up Tubelight and is hosting BB10. From what has been reported so far, the actor will either simultaneously begin Ali Abbas Zafar's Tiger Zinda Hai or wait till the reality show gets over sometime in January.
