The actor took it to micro-blogging site Twitter to share the news with the fans and said that it is great to be a part of the movie and even thanked Ramesh Taurani to let him be part of the project.
He wrote, "Let's race along @RameshTaurani... It feels great to be a part of the team!! #Race3."
Earlier, Taurani had tweeted, "Welcome to the family #BobbyDeol @BeingSalmanKhan @Asli_Jacqueline #Race3 #Eid2018".
Apart from Salman and Bobby the third installment in the "Race" franchise also features Jacqueline Fernandez.
While Salman, 51, has replaced Saif Ali Khan as the lead in the action-thriller, Jacqueline is not new to the franchise. She starred in the 2013's "Race 2".
Abbas-Mustan directed the first two films, but Remo D' Souza will helm the third movie.
