|Salman Khan is an all-weather friend for the people he takes a liking to. The latest we hear is that the superstar has decided to back friend Mahesh Manjrekar’s project.
Now, Mahesh Manjrekar is not a director one can link many blockbusters with. Though he has directed a good number of films in his career, it was his Vaastav and Astitva more than a decade ago that brought him laurels.
For the last 2 years, Manjrekar has been keen on roping in Salman Khan for a movie, but the superstar has been too busy to commit. Buzz now is that Salman has finally taken the call and has agreed to not just act in Manjrekar’s film but also produce it under his banner Salman Khan productions.
If true, it’s very generous of the Khan, who’s not just hard pressed for time -- thanks to his chock-a-block date diary -- but also particular about the films he backs as producer.
So far, Salman Khan has produced Chillar Party and plans to produce the Hero remake next year with Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty.
Mahesh Manjrekar and Salman Khan became friends while working in films like Wanted, Dabangg, Ready, and Bodyguard.
In fact, Manjrekar is learnt to have said that Salman is his only friend in the film industry.
