Exclusive updates from reliable sources on Salman Khan’s next few movies in 2013. The actor will be shooting for 3 movies this year and the sequel to ‘No Entry’ and Sooraj Barjatya’s next have been pushed to 2014.
Unfortunately, Salman fans who have been waiting to see the superstar in a comedy / romantic film, will have to wait for another year as almost all his releases in 2013 and 2014 will be mass-oriented action films. Two of them are confirmed to be remakes, while the script for the third film is undecided.
List of Salman Khan’s next few movies
Mental: From Sher Khan to Radhe, several titles for this Sohail Khan directed film were doing the rounds. But it looks like the Khan’s have finally registered the title ‘Mental’. The film, a remake of Telugu hit Stalin (2006), is currently in it’s pre-production stage and will go on floors in March 2013. A newcomer will be cast as the female lead. The official release date of Mental is yet to be announced.
Kick: Ever since Sajid Nadiadwala bought the official rights of the Telugu movie Kick, the remake has been in news for all the wrong reasons. Post the success of Dabangg, Sajid finalized Salman-Sonakshi as the lead pair. After talks with A.R Murugadoss failed to materialize, Shirish Kunder was finalized as the director. But, a day after the ‘Joker’ debacle, Shirish announced on Twitter that he is no longer a part of the film. Later, it was announced that Sajid Nadiadwala would make his directorial debut with the movie. Now, with the film ready to go on floors, the makers are keen on casting Deepika Padukone opposite Salman Khan, i.e if her dates can be worked out. The shooting is tentatively scheduled to begin in August 2013 and the film is likely to release early 2014. Read more on Kick
Prabhu Deva film: It was ‘Wanted’ that marked the beginning of Salman Khan’s second innings in Bollywood. After a string of debacles, the film was a decent success at the box office and a huge hit on home-video and television. Since then, both Salman and Prabhu Deva have expressed their desire to work together in several interviews. Now, Ramesh Taurani (TIPS) has signed the superstar for a film that is set go on floors by the end of 2013. Talking about the untitled film, Taurani said “Yes, Salman will be doing a film with us. It will go on floors by the end of this year. Prabhu Deva will be directing it. I can’t talk much about the film right now. It may or may not be a remake. We are contemplating the subject right now. Once the subject is finalised, we will look for the leading actress”
So Mental, Kick and a film directed by Prabhu Deva will be Salman Khan’s upcoming films.
Do tell us what you think in the comments section below. Considering the fact that Salman Khan has already done about 4-5 action masala films in a row, would the sequel to No Entry or a pure romantic film with Sooraj Barjatya have been better choices?
