MUMBAI: Not to give up his claim of a release during the time of Eid, Salman Khan has finalised that his brother Sohail Khan‘s upcoming film Sher Khan would release in Eid 2013.
A few days ago, there were reports that Akshay Kumar‘s Once Upon A Time In Mumbai 2 would be the only 2013 Eid release. This means that Salman Khan would lock horns with Akshay Kumar during the Muslim festive time next year.
Said director Sohail Khan, "I start shooting Sher Khan from January 2013 next and I start casting and finalising locations from next month. It‘s God‘s decree, After Tiger, Bhai is destined to play Sher. We‘re going ahead with the release of Sher Khan during Eid 2013."
The project would be different from Dabangg and Ek Tha Tiger and will have more special effects than stunts. Said an insider that more than Salman‘s stunts there will be lots of special-effects in the film. And that‘s why Sher Khan would take longer than usual in the post-production."
But Khan is very clear on this. Sher Khan would have to be ready for Eid, come what may," the source added.
As per reports Angela Johnson and Priyanka Chopra are in talks for the film.
