A source told the portal that Murad Khetani and the Endemol team have had a couple of meetings with Salman over the last 30 days to discuss Master with him. Salman has liked the concept of the film and has shown interest in it. “He is waiting for the team of Master to come to him with a bound script in Hindi, as a lot of elements from the Tamil original have to be tweaked to suit the sensibilities of Bollywood audience,” said the source.

The discussions are still in a nascent stage, and Salman will decide to be part of it or not after hearing the screenplay narration.
