Salman Khan to shoot with Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Arbaaz Khan’s ‘Dabangg 3’?
You all must be already knowing about Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s reunion in a love story after almost two decades later. Recently we also came across reports which suggested that Salman batting for his ‘Tiger Zinda Hai‘ co-star Katrina Kaif as the leading actress in Bhansali’s film. Bhansali and Salman have earlier worked together in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, which released in 1999. Later they also worked in ‘Saawariya’, but Khan just had a special appearance in it.
Bhaijaan Salman recently concluded the shooting of ‘Bharat’, which is an official adaptation of Korean film, ‘An Ode To My Father’. Talking about Bhansali’s film, as per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Salman will Kick off shooting for it in September this year after wrapping up his brother Arbaaz khan‘s production ‘Dabangg 3’. Earlier there were reports doing the rounds that post ‘Dabangg 3’ Bhaijaan will be seen in ‘Veteran’ which is also a remake of a Korean film. The right of ‘Veteran’ has been purchased by Atul Agnihotri and his CEO Nikhil Namit. But now Salman will shoot for Bhansali’s film first and then take up ‘Veteran’ remake.
A source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror, “Salman wasn’t keen on doing back-to-back cop films. That’s why he gave the nod to Bhansali’s love story that helps him break away from his larger-than-life image and is being readied for a 2020 release. The yet-untitled action thriller will now go on the floors in the first quarter of next year.”
