Pakistani singer, Atif Aslam, has come on board as the playback singer for a song written by Salman Khan in his upcoming action thriller, Race 3. It’s set out to be a romantic number, which will be choreographed by director Remo D’Souza and picturised in Abu Dhabi as part of the film’s current schedule. Needless to say, the song will be picturised on Salman. Mirror quoted the film’s producer, Ramesh Taurani as saying, “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.” Also Read - Bigg Boss 14 October 21 Episode Major Highlights: Captaincy Task Breaks Friendships in The House

In the meantime, the composer of the song, Vishal Mishra, told the leading tabloid that the film’s team is now contemplating whether to add another track written by the 52-year-old superstar. “The lyrics Salman has written are beautiful. He sat with me to create every note for the track,” he added. For the uninitiated, Atif Aslam has always sung at least one song in each of the installments of the Race Franchise, which turned out to be massive chartbusters. In 2008’s Race, Atif sang the hit number, ‘Pehli Nazar Mein’, where as in 2013 for Race 2, Atif lent his vocals for two of the most famous songs of the film–‘Beintehaa’ and ‘Allah Duhai Hai’. Looks like the makers insist on having Atif come on board for the third installment as well, despite the continued ban on Pakistani artistes.
