That Salman Khan and John Abraham aren't on good terms is a known fact. The two stars had fallen out during the 2006 Rockstars Concert. But it was said that in 2011, the two actors buried the hatchet when John came on Salman's Bigg Boss to promote Desi Boyz. But it seems the two far away from being friends.

Sources claim that Salman, who has given a go ahead for Race 3, did all the necessary checks to ensure that John wasn't a part of the film. For those who don't remember, John was the main villain in Race 2, and he didn't die at the end. So Salman wanted to make sure that the makers of Race 3 are not planning to revive the character played by John in the previous film.

Going by these reports, it seems that there is still some underlying tension which is there between the two stars. Salman still holds onto the grudge.

Salman has given a nod to Race 3, and he shall be replacing Saif Ali Khan who was the lead in the previous two installments. It is being said that Salman will be seen in a negative role in the film.

Jacqueline Fernandez has also been roped in to play the female lead opposite Khan. Race 3 should be Salman and Jacqueline's second film together after Kick. They are even slated to be part of Remo D'Souza's dance film ABCD 3.
