New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will be seen in adrenaline-pumping action flick Race 3. The franchise is known for its glamour quotient and kickass action stuff.

With Salman's addition to the franchise, it is definitely going to be bigger and better. Now, we all know Jacqueline Fernandes and Daisy Shah will be acting opposite Sallu Bhai in the film. There was a strong buzz lately that Sidharth Malhotra too will be starring in the venture.

However, seems this is not likely to happen. According to BollywoodLife.com, Sid had refused to star in the film. The report has been originally attributed to DNA After Hrs.

The report quotes a source as saying, “Sid didn’t like the script. And he was clear about it. He didn’t dilly-dally and keep the makers waiting. He politely turned down the offer.”

Adding, “There is a face-off between these two characters — Salman and the other hero. So, it isn’t a menial role. After Salman’s, this is the biggest role in the film, anyway. Also, Sid and Salman are extremely fond of each other. The two-hero equation wasn’t the reason at all. He has done Brothers with Akshay Kumar before so it wasn’t an issue here, too.”
