MUMBAI: Salman Khan co-produced ‘Chillar Party’ two years ago, and everything has been quiet on that front since then. But it looks like he has finally begun putting his production plans in action.
It is already well knows that Salman Khan is producing the vehicle for the debuts of Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. The film is a remake of Subhash Ghai’s 1983 Jackie Shroff-starrer ‘Hero’.
Beside this film, buzz is that Salman Khan wants to remake the Punjabi film ‘Jatt and Juliet’, which has been a huge hit overseas too. This film will be co-produced with Himesh Reshammiya, and will star a newcomer (not Sooraj Pancholi).
His collaboration with Himesh Reshammiya speaks well of their relationship. Even though Himesh started off with Salman Khan in 1998’s ‘Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya’, their relationship soured. Eventually, they let bygones be bygones and Himesh Reshammiya even composed the music for Salman Khan’s 2011 film ‘Bodyguard’.
The third film that Salman Khan will be producing will be directed by Puneet Issar, who directed Salman Khan previously in ‘Garv: Pride And Honour’. The good news for Salman Khan fans here is that the superstar himself may act in this film. The highlight of the film is, reportedly, its action scenes.
Both the films with Himesh Reshammiya and Puneet Issar will shoot in 2014. Meanwhile, the remake of ‘Hero’, which has tentatively been titled ‘The Hero’, will go on floors in November this year.
Salman Khan co-produced ‘Chillar Party’ along with UTV Spotboy. The film even won 3 National Film Awards.
His next production will be a remake of Subhash Ghai’s 1983 ‘Hero’ with Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty in the lead roles.
Himesh Reshammiya recently bought the rights for the remake of the superhit Punjabi film ‘Jatt And Juliet’. Salman Khan will co-produce the remake with Himesh Reshammiya and cast a newcomer in the lead role.
The third film will be directed by ‘Garv: Pride And Honour’ helmer Puneet Issar and will have Salman Khan acting in the film.
On the sidelines, Salman Khan is even presenting ‘Dr Cabbie’, an Indo-Canadian production. The film stars Isabel Kaif, Katrina Kaif’s younger sister.
