Dharmendra has expressed his desire to work with the two of the three reigning Khans of Bollywood, Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan. Of late, Dharmendra has been largely inactive except for a couple of movies under his old banner of “Vijayta Films”. Those films too, were the ones that cast him or his sons Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
Speaking about his desire to work with the two Khans, Dharmendra said, “In between, the banner had a very bad phase. Now, it’s doing very well. I’m looking forward to working with Shah Rukh and Salman. They have great love for me because I treat them like my own sons.” While Dharam ji says that his plans are just plans as of now, he exudes confidence that Salman and Shahrukh will not decline his offer.
Dharmendra says that the two stars are too busy with their prior commitments and that they won’t be available for the next five years. “They are booked for the next five years, so I haven’t asked them yet. I know they will say yes, but I won’t approach them now because it will disturb their schedules“, he said.
As of now, Dharam ji is busy promoting the sequel of Yamla Pagla Deewana, which is slated for releases on 7th June. But that hasn’t deterred him from reading new scripts. “I read some everyday to see which ones can be developed. I spend time watching films too, so I can come up with some ideas,” he said.
