Yashraj Movies have finally succeeded in striking a deal with hunk Salman Khan after the latter last refused to do Chak De India for YRF.
A close friend of Sallu says, “Salman was the first actor to be approached for Chak De India! But while he loved the script he had suggested changes in the film’s climax. He wanted the final match of the hockey tournament be played between India and Pakistan.
He felt that then story would come full circle. But Adi didn’t budge and both parted ways amicably. Shah Rukh Khan was then signed on for the role. But Salman is now looking forward to the YRF project being written and directed by Victor (Acharya).”
Now Sallu miyan is part of YRF with the director of dud flick Tashan directing him.
A source says, “Vijay Krishna Acharya writer of the Dhoom series who made his debut last year with YRF’s Tashan is making his second film with YRF.
Salman Khan, R.Madhavan and Bhojpuri superstar Ravi Kishen are the male leads finalized for the same while the female leads are yet to be finalized. The film is supposedly a whacky action comedy that will go on floors in the second half of 2009.”
Well all wells that ends well for our Sallu Miyan.
