2017 will be another important year for Salman Khan fans. Salman will be back with 2 big films- One is Kabir Khan directed Tubelight and other one is Rajkumar Santoshi’s untitled film which will be produced by Salman’s sister Alvira Khan. Salman will be reunited with Rajkumar Santoshi after a wait of 22 years. Salman khan and Rajkumar’s last film was Andaz Apna Apna which had released in 1994.
Though after that Salman Khan did a special appearance in Rajkumar Santoshi’s Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani(2009) which had Salman’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif in a leading role alongside Ranbir Kapoor.
Now the question is that who will be the Leading Lady of Rajkumar’s untitled film. There were speculations that Katrina will be the preferred choice for the film but there was no final confirmation by the producers. Now the latest buzz is that Deepika Padukone might just have bagged the role and has been signed for the film. Salman had publicly admitted that he wanted to work with Hollywood-bound Deepika Padukone. But somehow it did not work out. First Kick and then Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
But now Sallu’s wish is expected to turn into a reality. Deepika will be starring in his new untitled film. It will be the first Bollywood film she would be working on after taking time off to only concentrate on her first Hollywood project XXX with Vin Diesel.
Deepika was also considered for Kabir Khan’s latest film Tubelight which will be released in eid 2017. But she opted out from the forthcoming film for lack off screen presence.Deepika Padukone wants a full fledged role with Salman Khan and she had requested Kabir Khan to change the script and provide her a better role to express herself but it did not work out. That’s why Deepika will not be a part of the film. After that the role went to Kabir Khan’s favourite actress and so called best friend Katrina Kaif. The pair of Salman and Katrina will be working together after their last film Ek Tha Tiger(2012) directed by Kabir Khan,himself.
So who will be best suited with Salman Khan- Katrina or deepika. For that we have to wait for some time. But for Sallu fans there is an extravaganza because after all it’s a bhaijaan’s movie.
