It could have been a casting coup. Salman the moody Khan agreeing to work with Bollywood’s prestigious banner Yashraj Films! But alas, it wasn’t to be.
Reports had it that the banner had roped in Salman Khan for a project to be directed by writer-turned-director Vijay Krishna Acharya, whose directorial debut ‘Tashan’ was produced by YRF.
But now, a clarification has come from the production house.
“We would like to clarify that this is a completely baseless and incorrect story. Vijay is still in the process of writing his next script for Yashraj Films. No casting has therefore been done nor has anyone been considered for the same,” a statement from the banner said.
“As and when we do finalise the script and the casting is complete, a suitable announcement will be made,” it added.
In his more than twenty years in Bollywood, Salman has worked with almost all the banners in the industry, but he is yet to be seen in a YRF production. The actor has been offered roles in the past, but the deals fell through.
