MUMBAI: Sohail Khan who is busy with the pre-production of his film starring Salman Khan confirms Tabu’s presence in the cast and that ‘Radhe’ may not be the film’s final title.
Says Sohail,“That is just the working title. The media is coming up with all sorts of inventive titles for my film. As of now, the only components we’ve finalized are Bhai (Salman) and Tabu who is my favourite.”
One has it from a source very close to the film that Salman and his brother Sohail Khan are not too sure that the title works.
“It worked as his name in Satish Kaushik’s ‘Tere Naam’. But when way back then Satish suggested the film be called ‘Radhe Moha’n after Salman’s character everyone had summarily rejected the title as sounding too mythological. Salman loves the name ‘Radhe’ for his character. And the hero’s name Stalin from the Telugu original would probably be changed to ‘Radhe’ to humour Salman. But that’s it. The film won’t be titled ‘Radhe’,” informs the source.
Interestingly the parrot on ‘Bigg Boss 6’ is also named Radhe on Salman’s insistence.
As of now the film’s title has been put on hold. “But it would be a one-word title. Salman favours one-worded titles like ‘Bodyguard’, ‘Dabangg’, ‘Kick’ and ‘Radhe’. In fact he wanted ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ to be called ‘Tiger’. But that title was already taken.”
