Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan said Monday that there is a possibility that he and his close friend Shah Rukh Khan might come together for a film. Both Salman Khan and Shah Rukh will be seen making extended appearances in their upcoming movies, Tiger 3 and Pathan, respectively.
Yash Raj Films’ (YRF) Tiger 3 is the next chapter in the spy action-thriller franchise. It will see Salman and Katrina Kaif reprise their roles as agents ‘Tiger’ and ‘Zoya’. The film also stars Emraan Hashmi as the antagonist. YRF is also backing Shah Rukh-led actioner Pathan, which will feature Salman in an extended cameo.
There were reports that the films will be a part of YRF’s ‘spy universe’, which will ultimately bring its heroes for a movie together.
Salman is celebrating his 56th birthday at his Panvel farmhouse. He interacted with the media and said Tiger 3 would release by December 2022. Salman also teased the possibility of him and Shah Rukh teaming up for another project.
“We are coming together in Tiger and Pathan. Tiger 3 should be released by December 2022, before that Pathan will release. Then maybe both of us will come together,” the actor told reporters.
Tiger 3 is helmed by Maneesh Sharma of Fan and Band Baaja Baaraat fame, while Pathan is directed by War helmer Siddharth Anand. Pathan marks Shah Rukh’s first film after 2018 romantic-drama Zero.
During the media interaction, Salman confirmed he will be filming for his recently announced Bajrangi Bhaijaan sequel after he finishes two of his projects. They are Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and the second installment of the hit comedy No Entry.
The actor said the follow-up of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, is being written by veteran screenwriter KV Vijayendra Prasad. He also wrote the story for the 2015 original. The second edition will be titled Pavanputra Bhaijaan.
Salman said as of now he does not have any plans to work with filmmaker SS Rajamouli, son of Prasad. However, he is looking forward to the sequel Bajrangi…, which was a much-loved comedy drama.
“No, there is nothing like that (a film with Rajamouli). If it happens it will be great as he is an extremely good director. But I am definitely working with his father, KV Vijayendra Prasad. He had written the script of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and he is now writing its sequel too, and has named it Pavanputra Bhaijaan,” Salman informed.
“As soon as he completes it, and I complete shooting two films… (we will begin). Once Tiger 3 is over, then perhaps No Entry sequel might begin, then Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. Once these are done, I will begin the film,” added the superstar.
Salman said he will spend a few days at this farmhouse with his close friends and family. They are together after conducting due Covid-19 tests – and will then resume work on Tiger 3.
