Pakistani singer Atif Aslam has been roped in to lend his melodious voice to a song written by Salman Khan in the upcoming action thriller Race 3.

The romantic song has been choreographed by director Remo D’ Souza. The song will be picturised in Abu Dhabi as part of the film’s current schedule.

Producer Ramesh Taurani confirmed the news to Mumbai Mirror and said, “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.”

The composer of the song, Vishal Mishra, said the Race 3 team was currently adding another track penned by Salman Khan. He added, “The lyrics Salman has written are beautiful. He sat with me to create every note for the track.”

Earlier, he sang Pehli Nazar Mein for Race (2008) and Beintehaa and Allah Duhai Hai for Race 2 in 2013, but it coincides with a renewed call for a ban on Pakistani artistes in Bollywood. Due to this, Atif Aslam was not given recognition in Baaghi 2 song O Saathi.

Meanwhile, Race 3, starring Salman, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Saqeeb Salim, Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol is slated to release during Eid this year.
