COULD Salman’s next, Radhe, give his image the kind of makeover he so seems to desire? The Sohail Khan directorial, which is a remake of southern hit, AR Murugadoss’s Stalin (2006), will see Sallu play a good samaritan – a far cry from the roles he has been essaying to the hilt of late.
And to give the film a certain gravitas, the actor has reportedly sounded out both Tabu and Naseeruddin Shah to share screen space with him. When contacted, Sohail said, “(The actors) have not confirmed yet.” A source close to the film told TOI, “Before leaving for Dubai on Wednesday, Sohail spoke to Tabu and Naseer for two important roles in the film.”
Elaborating on Sohail’s unusual choice, the source said, “It was at Salman’s insistence that Tabu and Naseer were contacted. Salman felt that the supremely talented duo could give the film a touch of class. Also, the film sees him as a a military officer who sets out to reform society and as Suhail, needs cerebral actors.”
Initial reports suggest Tabu will play Salman’s sister in the film, while it is not clear what Naseer will be portraying. Incidentally, Radhe will be the first film with Salman and Naseer in it. As for Tabu, this will be Salman’s fourth film co-starring the actress. The first three being Hum Saath Saath Hain, Biwi No 1 and Jeet.
