The last time Salman Khan worked on a Dharma Productions’ film was in the college love saga Kuch Kuch Hota Hai way back in 1998.
After thirteen years, a bad fight with Dharma loyalist Shah Rukh and a couple of comeback hits Wanted and Dabangg, the original bad boy of Bollywood seems to have got a second chance with Karan Johar’s production house.
The ice probably broke when KJo asked Salman to be a part of his talk show. The actor agreed to do so for a price, they had to make a donation to his foundation. Though the filmmaker denied paying up for a celebrity on his show back then, he approached the Khan for the next Dharma venture to be directed by Rensil D’Silva.
Considering KJo’s association with his favourite Shah Rukh and Salman’s disassociation with the King Khan, this piece of news should have been surprising. However, with the filmmaker stretching his professional interests beyond his favourite Khan with Varun Dhawan starring in his next directorial venture Student Of The Year, the filmmaker approaching the other Khan becomes understandable.
According to a source, “After Kurbaan, Rensil is directing a fantasy-action caper on the lines of Ocean’s Eleven. When Karan Johar heard the script, he absolutely fell in love with it. Both Karan and Rensil felt Salman was perfect for the main part.”
However, even after repeated attempts, Rensil D’Silva remained unavailable for comment.
