Karan Johar wants to cast Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif for his next project: Salman Khan to replace Fawad Khan!
Hardly a week went by that Karan Johar, the prolific producer and filmmaker celebrated his 45th birthday in a star studded affair. And freshly it is heard that the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director wants to cast Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in his next film.
KJo has fallen head over heels for Sal-Kat, that is supposed to be one of the most magical pairs so much so that he is a good damn keen to cast them for the leading actors of his next project. Here it should be mentioned that the film will not be a Karan’s directorial venture, he will produce it instead.
A source close to the development reported, “While KJo’s next directorial will be with Ranbir Kapoor, he wants to produce a film with Salman and Katrina in the lead as he finds their chemistry sizzling.”
Salman Khan to replace Fawad Khan in Karan Johar’s next But what if we tell you that not Salman but Pakistani actor Fawad Khan was the first choice. And if everything goes well, the ‘Tubelight‘ actor will replace Fawad for this musical romance. The report also claimed that KJo had already started working on the project that apparently titled ‘Raat Baaki‘ keeping Fawad and Katrina in mind. However, then the Baahubali producer took a bold decision to remove Fawad from the film and make Salman come on the board. Why? The source had its reason
“Earlier, the same film was to star Pakistan actor Fawad Khan along with Katrina, but with the ban on Pakistani actors during Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, that is not happening. Hence the filmmaker was keen to rope in Salman.”
The source went to add, “The script is being reworked for Dabangg Khan and to make the character more suitable to him. The pre-production work on the film has begun.”
Salman Khan to come on board for Karan Johar’s film!
Again Salman Khan is the one actor whom Karan always wanted to rope right from the ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai‘ days when KJo, as he himself admitted, had to literally beg for to rope the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor. Not once but for another time Karan wanted to cast Salman in his production venture ‘Suddhi‘. However, things didn’t work out at that time, the project shelved and the role went to Varun Dhawan. Now we hope things will go for better. Besides Salman has already shared screen space with Katrina in a number of films and is currently shooting with her for Ali Abbas Zafar‘s spy thriller Tiger Zinda Hai where the these two are seen sharing heaven like bond. So, Salman may not think even twice to come on the board. And again in a recent interview, the Jagga Jasoos actress is seen talking a good many positive things about the Sultan actor and the rapport shared with him.
Salman Khan is currently busy in the promotional activities of his forthcoming release, Tubelight. The third time collaboration of Salman – Kabir duo, the most anticipated film is all set to release this Eid, on 23rd June.
