New Delhi: After the humungous success of Tiger Zinda Hai, superstar Salman Khan will next be seen in Race 3. The venture is being directed by ace choreographer turned filmmaker Remo D'Souza.

Salman, who is playing the lead role in Race 3, appeared at the Jodhpur Court to attend a hearing in the blackbuck poaching case a few days back and that's where a local gangster named Lawrence Bishnoi issued a death threat to the actor stating that he would kill Salman in Jodhpur.

Following which, the shoot of Race 3 was reportedly stalled in Film City and the actor was escorted back home with heavy security cover. But he did shoot for a song with Jacqueline Fernandez amid tight security reportedly.

Now, the actor is back to shooting the title track of the venture, giving a royal ignore to 'death threats'. According to Pune Mirror, Salman will be shooting the title track which features Jackky, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Freddy Daruwala. He will be on a five-day shoot schedule and a tight security has been ensured reportedly.

The report quotes a source as saying, “The song shoot is on schedule. Like the two previous title tracks, this one too will be mounted on a grand scale. A special set has been designed for the song. Next month the unit moves to Bangkok and then on to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. They are expected to finish by March with the last of the film being wrapped up in Mumbai.”

In fact, producer Ramesh Taurani has confirmed the development reportedly.
