Salman Khan has been known to help many celebrities, big or small. He has always made sure that the people he cares about, are cared for. The same could go for Katrina Kaif & Jacqueline Fernandez, who reportedly have both gotten more time and prevalence on screen, in both of their films with Khan.

Kaif stars with Khan in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, and Fernandez will be seen in the multi-starrer ‘Race 3’. The Deccan Chronicle reports an source saying, “There was talks of replacing Katrina in the sequel since her recent films had under-performed. But Salman put his foot down, arguing that only Katrina can play the lead in the sequel as she had done so in the first film.”

“Previously, Jacqueline was supposed to work with Remo D’ Souza and Salman on a dance film. But when the film was shelved, Salman made sure Jackkie was a part of his next project, Race 3. That’s not all. When Salman learned about her meagre role in Race 3, he insisted on giving her more space. Jacqueline now has a far more substantial role in Race 3 than she did when she entered the project,” concluded the source.

Khan is currently hosting the eleventh season of ‘Bigg Boss’ on Colors.
