Salman Khan to romance Jacqueline Fernandez in Remo D’Souza’s ABCD 3
After the stellar performances by Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor in the dance film ‘ABCD 2’ received appreciation from the critics’ circle and even minted money at the Box-Office, news about ‘ABCD 3’ has been doing the rounds.
According to a daily, choreographer-director, Remo D’souza has finally locked superstar Salman Khan and his ‘Kick’ co-star Jacqueline Fernandez for the third installment of ‘ABCD’.
Shared a source “Salman starts Remo’s film right after he wraps up Tiger Zinda Hai. And the heroine has been finalised. Remo took his film to Jackie and she has liked the idea. She is out of the country, so once she’s back, he will sit down with her for a full script narration and lock her for the film.”
Salman Khan-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer Kick (2014) was a mega blockbuster. The fresh pair who danced to the beat of ‘Jumme Ki Raat’ was loved by everyone.
ABCD 3 is said to be an emotional journey of a father-daughter’s journey to win a dance championship. Salman portrays the character of a 13-year old’s father, which he’s never attempted in his career before. Salman is essaying the role of father to a 13-year-old girl. In the film, the father-daughter duo has to participate in a dance competition. Jacqueline’s character is that of the dance teacher who mentors them in different dance forms and styles.
With Salman coming on board, the brand value of ABCD also becomes huge. As the source suggests, “ABCD was a sleeper hit. ABCD 2 starred Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor and was the first dance film to do Rs 100 crore. ABCD 3 is getting bigger and needs a superstar for its third calling. Remo is extremely pleased everything has fallen in place.” The film is expected to release next year on Eid, which is Salman’s favourite slot of release.
