The upcoming film Race 3 is likely to introduce us to new and unexplored talents of Bollywood actor Salman Khan – after rumours that the film might be his first in a negative role, we have now learnt that Salman has turned lyricist for a song in the film that is directed by Remo Fernandez.
Titled Selfish, the song is touted to be a soulful romantic track and will be released on Friday. Sources said the song was conceived during a brainstorming session with the team and Salman penned the lyrics on a piece of paper. Music composer Vishal Mishra set the music to Salman’s words and they had the song ready. Reports suggest Atif Aslam and Iulia have lent their voices to the song.
After Jacqueline Fernandez’s Hiriye, Selfish will be the second song to be unveiled from Race 3.
Announcing the new song on social media, actor Bobby Deol said, “Super excited for my first song in #Race3 with @BeingSalmanKhan and @Asli_Jacqueline! #Selfish releasing this Friday! @itsaadee @IuliaVantur @VishalMMishra @remodsouza @RameshTaurani @SKFilmsOfficial @tipsofficial #Race3ThisEid.”
