Salman Khan is one man who has never been afraid to explore various aspects of the entertainment – be it production or singing. Now, the ‘Dabangg’ Khan has decided to turn lyricist for the Race 3 love song titled ‘Selfish’.

The superstar says he had only penned a few thoughts, which the team loved and were eventually used as lyrics for the song “Selfish”.

It is the second song from the action entertainer and will be released on Friday, though it can be heard on the music app Gaana.

Talking about it, Salman said in a statement: “While discussing the creative for the song, I penned down a few thoughts on paper in sync with the plot of the film, which is about the selfishness within the family.

“When the music director Vishal Mishra heard it, he got extremely excited and said he will come back with a tune for the same. I said, ‘But this is a part of a conversation and not lyrics’.

However, he insisted to use the thoughts as it is for the song. Everyone loved the thoughts and wanted it to be used for the song.”

Featuring Salman, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah, ‘Selfish’ is a romantic song. It is sung by Pakistani singer Atif Aslam, who has delivered ‘Pehli Nazar’ and ‘Beintehaan’ for the earlier instalments of the Race franchise.

On the female vocals, is Lulia Vantur.

Race 3, directed by Remo D’souza, will release on Eid this year. Produced by Salman Khan Films and Ramesh Taurani under the banner of Tips Films, it also features Anil Kapoor and Saqib Saleem.
