Salman Khan to star in Anees Bazmee’s comedy film? Here’s what the filmmaker has to say
There was a report in Pinkvilla that stated Salman Khan wants to do comedy and he is looking for the right script. The report also stated that he is in advanced conversation with filmmaker Anees Bazmee and other stakeholders over the last month for this comic entertainer. It also stated that the film is expected to go on floors towards the end of next year after Salman completes his films Tiger 3, Bhaijaan, and others. It was also reported in the portal that Salman will be playing Prem in the comedy film.
Well, Anees has rubbished the report. He told SpotboyE that he was taken aback by these claims. “This is news to me. I am directing a film with Salman Khan, and I don’t even know about it? Perhaps those who wrote this report can inform me when I will be reaching the set and also when it gets released, so I can keep myself free…No seriously, there is no such talk,” said Bazmee.
Salman had earlier worked in comedies like Andaz Apna Apna, Judwaa, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Biwi No. 1, No Entry, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Partner and Ready. He worked with Anees Bazmee in No Entry and Ready and both were blockbusters.
Anees recalling his woking experience with Salman said, “We go back a long way. Salman Bhai did a guest appearance in my film No Entry 16 years ago. His character and the film were a hit. We then did Ready which was also a rage. Since then we haven’t had the chance to work together. I’d love to work with him again, but right now there is no project on the anvil.”
He said that he is completely focused on completing Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 now. He is hoping to complete the film by next month that stars Kartik Aaryan.
