Ever since Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much awaited collaboration, Inshallah, broke off fans are eagerly waiting to know as to which film he will be doing and coming with on Eid 2020. There were a lot of speculations being made that it will be Kick 2 but recently Sajid Nadiadwala had quashed all of those rumours.
Now, another news of Salman doing a film with Aanand L Rai is going viral on the internet and we really can’t keep calm.
According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Khan and Rai are in talks for a comedy film and it is said that the actor will be seen in a double role. The source revealed, “It’s an out-and-out comedy action entertainer and a con story based in Uttar Pradesh. Like Judwaa, Salman’s character (if he gives his nod to it) will have a double role. Imagine, two not one Salman Khans on Eid! Salman and Aanand have worked together in Zero when the super star worked with Shah Rukh Khan in the song ‘Issaqbaazi’. It was during this time that both Salman and the filmmaker figured out a certain comfort level and had discussed doing a film together. But Salman’s date diary in 2019 was full with Bharat, Dabangg 3 and Inshallah – till SLB’s decision was announced. Salman is keen to announce a movie on Eid 2020 as that is his day. His fans want it and it becomes a huge release at the box-office. When Aanand heard that Inshallah wasn’t happening with Salman, he approached him with a script which he will direct.”
The source futher added, “While it’s a comedy, it will have its unique emotional twist, as Aanand’s films have. If they do decide to go ahead with this movie, Aanand and Salman will both produce it. Both are discussing the script, dates and other issues and everything is under wraps right now. Once Dabangg 3 gets complete, Salman can give his dates to any movie he wants. Aanand’s movie is the comedy that everyone has been speculating about.”
The source further also explained as to why such speculations were being made about Kick 2, No Entry sequel and Wanted 2. “Salman was apparently shocked and caught unawares when Sanjay Leela Bhansali announced that Inshallah is not happening. Salman had wanted to just postpone the release but Bhansali, anticipating more creative issues, put it on hold (without Salman). While SLB is in talks with Shah Rukh Khan for the same, buzz is that when Bhansali made the announcement, Salman asked some of his friends, including filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala (with Kick 2), if their scripts were ready and they could release it on Eid 2020. While the script of Kick 2 is ready, Sajid has many films under production or releasing this year, so taking up direction and completing it by Eid next year, would be extremely difficult for him,” the source added.
Well, the reports further also states that when Rai was asked about the same, he simply denied the news.
We will have to just wait and watch what will be Salman’s next move!
