Last year, we came across stories of  Salman Khan producing a TV show based on the life of wrestler Gama Pehalwan. It was also reported that Salman’s actor brother Sohail Khan will be playing the lead in this fictional show. Post that, there was no update regarding this project. Interestingly, the recent reports suggest that the show will go on floors this year.


As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, the makers of the show will start shooting from April onwards. The untitled show will reportedly be launched in July this year. Directed and written by veteran actor Puneet Issar, the show will be shot in Punjab and London. Television actor Mohammed Nazim of ‘Saath Nibhana Saathiya’ fame, will be essaying the role of Sohail’s brother in the show.

Sohail was last seen in his brother’s home production ‘Love Yatri’. Sohail has also seen judging a comedy show on television. However, with this show based on Gama Pehelwan, it will be the first time when we will see him acting in a fictional show.

For the uninitiated, Ghulam Mohammed was popularly known as Gama Pehelwan. He was Indian World Heavyweight Champion. Gama is one of the most celebrated wrestlers in the world. It is said that in his career spanning 50 years, Gama has always been undefeated.

Also, we are wondering when will the makers of this show make an official announcement about the same.

For more such updates, stay tuned.
