Aanand L.Rai who is riding high on the super success of Tanu Weds Manu Returns, will soon be collaborating with none other than mega superstar Salman Khan. The director and actor were supposed to start the film long ago, however, there were reports that Salman Khan has walked out of the film. But now, rubbishing the rumours, Aanand has clarified that he is indeed in process of starting the untitled project with the actor.
Elaborating on the role played by Salman Khan in his upcoming directorial, the filmmaker revealed that the actor will be playing a dwarf in the film which is set amidst the backdrop of rural India like his other films. While Rai appreciated Salman’s desi avatars in his films and how he can connect with the audience through it, the filmmaker added that he will start the scripting for the film soon.
Considering that Salman Khan is busy with his other commitments, Aanand also mentioned that this film in question is currently in an initial stage and he can talk about in details only after a couple of months. It looks like that Salman Khan only changed his mind after the great success of Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
From what we hear, Aanand L. Rai will also be remaking the Tamil blockbuster Kalyana Samayal Saadham starring Imran Khan and Shruti Haasan. While Salman has not signed any film after Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. So there are high chances that Salman Khan upcoming movie will be with Aanad L Rai.
