Salman Khan has a special connection to Ahan Shetty’s debut film; guess what!
Three years ago, Salman Khan had launched Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty under his banner. Now, the younger Shetty sibling is all set to make his foray into Bollywood, and that too has a Salman Khan connection. Any guesses what that could be?
For the uninitiated, Sajid Nadiadwala is introducing Ahan Shetty with the Hindi remake of Telugu hit ‘RX 100’, which will be directed by Milan Luthria. From what we know, the film will be titled ‘Tadap’. Now, we hear that there will be a connection between Ahan and Salman. Read on to know what it is.
The makers have roped in Stefan Richter to design the stunts for the movie. Interestingly, Stefan has previously worked as the action director on SK’s ‘Kick‘ (2014) and Varun Dhawan-John Abraham starrer ‘Dishoom’ (2016), both of which were produced by Sajid.
Confirming the development, the director Milan says, “I love having different kinds of action in my movies, be it ‘Kachche Dhaage’ (1999), ‘Deewaar’ (2004) or ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai‘ (2010). It’s important I work with professionals who understand that the stunts in my films are story and character-driven. Stefan has a terrific body of work behind him and understands my kind of action. Preliminary meetings with him and Ahan have been exciting and he’s the perfect choice for the stuff we are attempting to showcase with him.”
Stefan is thrilled to start work on the film, which goes on floors around May this year. He says, “It feels like coming back to your family after a long time. ‘Kick’ with Sajid sir was one of my best experiences ever. Working with him and Salman along with the crew was just amazing. I have worked on ‘Dishoom’ as well. Whenever I come to Mumbai, I make sure I visit Sajid sir and we spend time chatting about films. I look forward to working with Milan. We have met a couple of times and have had an interesting exchange of ideas about this movie.”
