While Salman Khan is busy wrapping up his Eid 2020 release Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, his next post the Prabhudheva directorial with brother-in-law Aayush Sharma has already started making buzz. Now the grapevine has that Salman will be playing a Sikh cop in the film, adding one more cop character to his list including Dabangg, Garv and a few more.
The yet-untitled film will star Salman and Aayush in pivotal roles. While Salman will play a Sikh cop in an all-new avatar, Aayush will be seen playing a North Indian gangster. The film is being helmed by Abhiraj Minawala who last directed Aayush’s debut film LoveYatri for Salman Khan’s production house.
For the role, it is being said that the 54-year-old superstar will be growing a real beard and sport a turban. Talking about this to Mumbai Mirror, a source close to the development said, “Salman has played cops before, but what excited him about this one is that he’s a Sikh cop. He will be growing a beard for real and wears a turban. He will undergo multiple look tests next week with his team.”
For the unversed, this won’t be the first time Salman will be playing a Sikh character. In the 2008 release Heroes, he played a Sikh soldier in a brief role. The news is also that there will be no leading lady opposite the star. Talking about the same the source added, “ However, this time around, there won’t be an actress opposite Salman. He is an honest, upright, no-nonsense cop on a mission. However, the hunt is on for a leading lady for Aayush, a gangster on the run. He will sport a rugged look and will bulk up for the role since Salman and he has several confrontations.”
The film will go on floors in May so the team can wrap the shoot by September. “Salman has allotted bulk dates for the shoot and he is looking at a year-end or early 2021 release. It will wrap up by September following which he moves on to Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali,” source added.
