Salman Khan was supposed to star in Aanand L Rai’s Zero, but things didn’t work out and Rai opted to cast Shah Rukh Khan. However, looks like Rai is once again keen to cast Salman Khan in his next.
Salman Khan currently has two films in his kitty, Dabangg 3 and Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. He hasn’t announced any film after that. Rai’s movie will be co-produced by Bhushan Kumar who had also co-produced Salman’s Bharat.
A source told Deccan Chronicle, “Salman’s last release was Bharat which was co-funded by Bhushan Kumar, with whom he has a decent past. Though they have had their differences over certain projects, Bhushan is now collaborating with Aanand for all his films, and he too is a part of the next project where they are trying to get Salman to play the lead. Bhushan already has around 13 film releases this year and has a bagful later. Aanand and Salman share a good bond, but Salman is only keen to do films the idea of which he understands without being cajoled into doing it. If it takes a long time to discuss the project, Salman moves away. So Aanand and Bhushan need to make their move quickly.”
