Fawad Khan’s next with Salman Khan


Fawad Khan’s next movie under Salman Khan production is the latest victim in the whole controversy surrounding ban on Pakistani artists in India.

Remember few days back we told you on how Salman Khan and Fawad Khan are teaming together for a new project. Yup that made us equally anxious since this is like a dream pairing for us. But seems like we might have to wait a bit longer to see these two stars coming together. The  Ae Dil Hai Mushkil star was supposed to star in Salman Khan production’s next, directed by Nitin Kakkar. This Filmistaan director had earlier confirmed that he has locked in this star and the shooting for which shall commence next year. However now what could be a nightmare for us, Nitin had rubbished all these news and infact asked media who has been spreading such baseless rumours! Well though we are used to rumours which say a certain actor has agreed to do the movie and later going on record later to deny the same, this was indeed a shocker.

We all know that the whole controversy surrounding ban on Pakistani artists in India is getting intense day by day. While MNS party leaders have called to ban any movies featuring Pakistani artists, there are many celebs in B town who are against this decision.

Nitin Kakkar was quoted saying in an interview, “Fawad Kaun? I don’t know who is spreading these rumours.”However let us refresh his memory. It was the same director who gave us details while we met him for the screening of his short film. He then had said that, “We go on floors with Fawad sometime next year. He is locked in. We are currently in the process of getting an actress on board.” The film will roll early next year when Fawad’s dates are available. However, unlike the director’s last film Filmistan, there is no social message in this one.” The director had then even divulged what the plot shall be all about. We heard him saying, “This is an urbane love story. But more than that, it’s an interesting take on relationships between a boy and a girl

Interestingly, this is not the only movie where Fawad’s name was being considered with Salman Khan. He was also supposed to do Jugalbandi which too is Salman Khan Production. However Amar Butala who heads SKF had denied these rumours. He had said that, “I am in constant touch with Fawad and it’s true that the two have finally decided to work together. But it’s not for Jugalbandi. Fawad has greenlit Filmistaan director Nitin Kakkar’s next film instead.”

So now when Nitin Kakkar has denied approaching Fawad Khan, it will be interesting to see which actor gets the chance to replace him. Also is Salman Khan happy with Fawad not being a part of his production anymore? What do you think about this issue, comment your views below!
