Remo D'Souza has worked with Salman Khan and Varun Dhawan in Race 3 and ABDC 2 respectively. Remo D’Souza is currently shooting for Race 3 with Salman Khan.

Remo D’Souza has quashed all reports about Varun Dhawan replacing Salman Khan in his upcoming dance-based film. The choreographer-turned-director, who is currently busy with the shooting of Race 3 also starring Salman along with Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah, told that the report was ‘rubbish’.

“It is all rubbish. I don’t know who is even making these news. I am busy shooting Race 3 right now. There are no changes in the film I will be doing with Salman Khan,” Remo told

Reports began doing the rounds that Remo’s ABCD 2 actor Varun Dhawan had replaced Salman in the dance-based film which the filmmaker would get on to after wrapping up Race 3. This was because of Salman’s “uncertainty” about being part of the project. The report further stated that Salman was reluctant as the film was dominated by dance and he was supposed to play a father. The film tentatively titled Dancing Dad, is about a single dad who takes part in a dance competition to make his nine-year-old daughter happy.

Salman and Remo are currently shooting for Race 3. While Salman has already replaced Saif Ali Khan in the action-thriller franchise, Remo has come on board in place of director duo Abbas-Mustan. Salman’s look from the film was recently released in the form of a single still where we saw him hiding behind his gun. The team also shared a picture from the sets while kicking off its shooting earlier this month.

Salman, who failed to do wonders at the box office with Tubelight this year, has another film lined up – Tiger Zinda Hai. The sequel to the 2012 Ek Tha Tiger co-stars Katrina Kaif and has them teaming up after five years. Its first song “Swag Se Swagat” was launched to astounding reception on Tuesday.
