Salman Khan and Prabhudheva are finally getting together for a sequel to their 2009 hit film, Wanted. But Boney Kapoor who was the producer of the original film is nowhere to be seen in the sequel. Sources say Salman is not comfortable working with Boney Kapoor for “personal reasons”(Salman’s former sister-in-law Malaika Arora is in a relationship with Boney’s son Arjun Kapoor). But he is keen on doing a Wanted sequel with Prabhudheva as his Eid 2020 release. Hence the sequel to Salman’s Wanted is going to be made under Khan’s own production banner.

Says a source in the know, “Salman and Prabhudheva are doing a Wanted sequel. They won’t take Boney Kapoor’s consent. But they will do the sequel anyway.”
Sources close to Boney say he would have happily given Salman the go-ahead to the sequel without Boney as producer.
“He isn’t the kind to hold grudges or someone who would do anything out of spite. All Salman had to do was ask Boney and Wanted would have been given to Salman. Doing it without consent is not proper. But Boney is not taking any legal action,” says the source.
Wanted was a blockbuster that put Salman in another zone altogether career-wise. It kickstarted a fantastic phase in the actor’s career that peaked with Dabangg. Salman is also going to make Dabangg 3.
