Shooting for Salman Khan’s next Eid release Inshallah begins in July. The film is to be shot in several largely-unexplored parts of India including Hardwar and Varanasi.
While not much is known about the content of this Alia Bhatt-Salman Khan love story set in contemporary India (no more costume dramas for at least while for Bhansali) we can tell you that with the stupendous opening of Salman’s current Eid starrer Bharat, the mood is upbeat on both the sides. While Bhansali is going ahead full speed with the pre-production of Inshallah ,Salman is wrapping up his work on Dabangg 3 which releases for Christmas.
A very close friend of Salman who is also planning a film with the Superstar Khan says Salman wants to ‘claim’ Christmas 2019 and Eid 2020 as his own. Thereby re-consolidating his supremacy with three back-to-back blockbusters.
Says the pal, “Bhai had two underperformers Tubelight and Race 3 in 2017-2018. Now he’ll make sure there are three uninterrupted blockbusters in 2019-2020.”
Salman’s next project after Bhansali’s Inshallah would be his pal Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick and his most favourite director Ali Abbas Zafar’s next film in the Tiger series (Zafar and Salman’s fourth collaboration.)
Interestingly while Salman is doing more work than ever before, the two other two Khan superstars Shah Rukh and Aamir have no assignment on hand and are undecided about what to do next.
“It’s definitely the time for Salman to race far ahead of his competition. He is now entering the best phase of his life,” says a friend who doesn’t want to be quoted.
