Salman Khan, who will be next seen in the movie Jai Ho, will play the role of a man who is on a mission to change the society and make the world a better place. The movie is a remake of the South Indian film Stalin which tells the story of a man who is a social crusader.
The movie was originally titled Mental but it was changed, as the director Sohail Khan says “Yes, the film is entitled Jai Ho. Mental was only a working title. We always knew we’d change it. Jai Ho was a title that my father liked. Now by the grace of God, we’re all set to release it on Jan 24.”
“Mental was suggested by Salman. And everyone kinda liked it. But when the release date was fixed on Jan 24, Salim Saab felt the title needed to be more pertinent. Everyone suggested something patriotic to go with the Republic Day release. The film conveys a message about eradicating corruption and Salman plays a social crusader. Jai Ho would pitch Salman as a hero of the masses in a socially relevant theme,” said a source close to the film. He also added that the name is apt.
