Director Kabir wants Salman Khan for his next film with Yash Raj.
PSST! If Sallu says yes, this will be his first film with YRF
Kabir Khan is pursuing Salman Khan for his next Yash Raj Films project. The New York director has expressed keen interest in working with Sallu for his next, a romantic drama.
Apart from Kabir, Aditya Chopra, too, has been sending feelers to the actor to accept the film. This would be SK's first Yash Raj film if he agrees to be a part of it.
A source remarks on the development, "Dabangg's success is one of the main reasons for the banner pursuing Salman.
Initially, the director was thinking of casting John Abraham as the main lead, but after Sallu's flick became a smash hit, he decided the Dabangg actor would be a better draw."
The source adds that this isn't the first time SK has been approached for a Yash Raj film. He has been made several offers in the past, but none of them worked out.
"The star has never worked with Aditya Chopra, a slose friend of arch rival Shah Rukh Khan. Before signing the film, Sallu wants to be sure the team is all on the same page, creatively. Kabir has told the star that he can't see anyone else playing the part."
The YRF spokesperson didn't deny the development, adding, "YRF is in conversation with various artistes for our forthcoming slate of films.
We will make our announcements shortly after finalising everything. Till then, all this is mere conjecture."
