Salman Khan’s much anticipated Wanted : Dead and Alive, a remake of the Tamil blockbuster Pokiri, was all set to release on July 3rd this year. But unfortunately due to the Producers – Multiplex owners strike, the release was postponed indefinitely.
The release date was announced soon after the strike ended and the film is all set to release on 18th September 2009.
Prabhu Deva who also directed the Tamil film makes his Bollywood debut as a director. Interestingly, Salman’s character name (Radhe) in the film is similar to Tere Naam (Radhe Mohan). In Wanted, he plays the role of a hardcore gangster!
With the promos creating the all important intial buzz, the film is all set do a Ghajini, which quite ironically was also a Tamil remake directed by a Tamil director!
