Mumbai: Actor Sidharth Malhotra says he missed out on an opportunity to share screen space with Salman Khan in 'Race 3' due to date issues.

With Salman stepping in for the Ramesh Taurani-produced 'Race' franchise, the third part of the thriller film just got bigger in terms of casting.

"There were talks earlier and nothing really culminated. Now, they have done their casting. I know Ramesh Taurani and Salman Khan and they are wonderful people to work with. Maybe (I will work with them) in the future if not this," Sidharth told PTI.

"There were no creative differences. There were other things on my plate, so I couldn't shift things around to do that film. There was time limitation, they are starting shoot right now and I couldn't do it. So we couldn't go ahead with it," he said.

"It would have been great to share screen space with Salman," he said.

Sidharth was appointed as the brand ambassador for OPPO camera phones at the launch of OPPO F5 in Mumbai here on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the full cast of the film and the release date have been confirmed.

The Remo D'Souza directorial will star Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem, Daisy Shah, Freddy Daruwala and will release on Eid 2018.
