After Ek Tha Tiger, which releases this Eid, Salman Khan has locked “Eid 2013” for the release of Sohail Khan’s “Sher Khan”.
Though Sohil was a little apprehensive about the Eid release, he said he will try his best to make it happen.
“Eid 2013 is really cutting it close. But I am definitely going to make an effort to make it for Eid next year. I hope to finish the final draft of the script by August and then quickly assemble the cast and crew. Inshallah, we roll in November and release for Eid,” Sohail said.
Says a source close to the film, “Sohail needed a full year at least to shoot the film and then at least another 3 months for post-production as the film requires extensive special effects. Now to meet the Eid deadline he must complete the entire film, post-production included, in 10 months. But Bhai is keen to bring Sher Khan for next Eid. It’s his gift to his kid fans. And as of now he won’t be doing any other film after Dabangg 2, except Sher Khan.”
It’s now a trend for Salman Khan starring flicks to release on every Eid. 2009 saw the release of Wanted, followed by Dabangg in 2010, Bodygaurd in 2011 and Ek Tha Tiger this Eid. However, Dabangg 2 will see a Christmas release. Let’s wait and watch how lucky Christmas proves to be for Sallu.
Ek Tha Tiger hits theaters on August 15.
