Salman Khan’s Sher Khan Put On Hold

 So far  it’s always been family-first  for Salman Khan.  Why else  would he allow  his brother Arbaaz to direct a project as prestigious  as Dabangg 2?

Salman Khan’s other brother Sohail too has had his (Bhai-send) opportunities  like Auzaar, Hello Brother  and  Pyar Kiya Toh Darna  Kya.  Sohail has been planning a fourth  directorial with Salman for two years now.  The  mammoth  project entitled  Sher Khan is  said to be  Tarzan-inspired  jungle adventure featuring Salman in a never-before  action avatar with plenty of animals  for company.

The film was to kickstart  in 2020.  But has  now been  pushed forward  to 2022.

A  close friend  of Salman Khan spills the beans. “It’s really very simple. Bhai is not completely  happy with the script. Sohail  has gone back to the storyboard at  least three times.  But Bhai is still not  satisfied. Salman Khan wants Sher Khan  to be  a game changer in  the action genre.”

Apparently Sohail is on  the same  page as Salman Khan on this issue.

Says  the source, “Sohail is okay with re-working the Sher Khan script as many times as required.  He too wants Sher Khan to be a landmark in  the action genre and  in Salman’s career.Salman was  supposed  to start Sher Khan this year . But has now allotted those dates to his friend Sajid Nadiadwala  for  Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.”

Incidentally the  word ‘Sher’ doesn’t seem  too  favourable for our movies.  Prior to Salman’s Sher Khan, Sanjay Dutt  worked in a film of that title which got shelved midway.
