Not Battle of Saragarhi: Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar to make a sports biopic now?
Much has been said, written and twisted so far regarding the joint venture of Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar for a film. It was assumed a film on Battle of Saragarhi, a topic that Ajay Devgn thought of much before. The project schedules for a release in 2018. And latest news is that the makers have apparently made their mind to drop the plan, not fully. Well, why ‘not fully’? is as follows.
Salman Khan to produce a sports movie with Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar!
If a report of a popular portal is anything go by, then Salman, KJo and Akki have dropped the idea of making a historical film on the Battle Of Sargarhi. Instead, the trio will reunite for another film on another topic. And it is apparently a sports biopic.
Says a source, “It was felt by them that a historical may not be the right vehicle for the historic coming together of the trio. They will now do another film altogether, most probably a sports bio-pic which would star Akshay as planned. While Karan and Salman will co-produce the film, again as per the earlier plan.”
The report also adds, the sports film won’t be about cricket or hockey like conventional Bollywood sports movies. As the team feels it is too early to talk about.
After Gold, Akshay Kumar to do another sports biopic: 2 sports movies in 2018?
At this point, not sure how much relatable the news is specially when Akshay Kumar is already doing Reema Kagti’s sports biopic. A biopic of hockey legend Balbir Singh, Gold will release during the Independence Day weekend, 2018. Now why would Akshay want his two sports movies to come in the same year?
Ajay Devgn confirms “Salman Khan is not making Battle of Saragarhi”
On another hand, none of Salman Akshay or Karan ever mentioned that the film is on Battle of Saragarhi. Furthermore during Baadshaho’s promotions, Ajay Devgn went to confirm that “Salman Khan is not making Battle of Saragarhi.” While Salman Khan also gave a clarification of not backing off from the project. And these things again make sense for the trio to go ahead with a different script. And who knows sports biopic is that one!
