That the Khan troika is closely knit with brotherly bond is something everyone in the industry knows. But now, Salman is caught in a quandary. He has before him two projects - Arbaaz Khan’s production Dabangg 2 and Sohail Khan’s proposed 3D jungle adventure Sher Khan. Both the projects are close to Salman’s heart. But he has to give priority to one over another.
Judging the response to Dabangg, one might have assumed that the movie’s sequel would be high on Sallu’s priority list. And that may well be the case, but Salman doesn’t wish to snub Sohail. So we hear that he has chosen to work on Sher Khan first and then commit himself to Dabangg 2.
Which means that Dabangg 2, earlier slated to go on floors in January 2012, will now roll six months late.
The buzz in the industry is that Salman is very excited about Sher Khan as it brings the rather unexplored genre of jungle adventure back on the Indian screens. Presently, however, Salman is set to start filming Kabir Khan’s next film Ek Tha Tiger with Katrina Kaif. It’s Salman’s maiden film for Yashraj Films as a solo hero.
