Salman to play Tarzan in brother Sohail Khan’s film
After Hrithik played Krrish a stylish superhero, now it seems Salman Khan is all set to play the desi lovable superhero of the jungles, Tarzan. Salman will play Tarzan in his brother Sohail Khan’s production. No doubt Sallu will get ample scope to display his enviable torso in the film. But apart from that Sallu is keen to play Tarzan as he is extremely fond of the character.
Salman has read a lot of Tarzan comic books as a kid and is quite fond of the character. Sohail came up with idea and script around four years back, but due to brother Sallu’s other film commitments, postponed the film. Now finally Sohail and Salman are ready to make the film. Sohail Khan says “I had written the script of Tarzan four years ago, but Salman was committed to do other films at the time. But Tarzan has been playing on Salman’s mind for quite some time now. The film should go on the floors some time next year.” Salman also has a huge fan following amongst kids and hence he wants to do a film that would appeal to them. Tarzan is extremely popular with both kids as well as adults.
Salman’s spokesman Vikas Kapoor confirmed that Salman will be doing Tarzan “It’s true that Salman Khan is to do Tarzan and it will be made under Sohail Khan Production.” Meanwhile there is talk that Anees Bazmee maybe roped in to direct the film. Salman was recently shooting in Austria for Subhash Ghai’s film Yuvraj where he supposedly plays a chorus singer in an orchestra. The film is a musical and also stars Anil Kapoor. In the film, Sallu has been paired opposite real life sweetheart Katrina Kaif. Salman will soon be seen in a cameo in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Saawariya and he is busy promoting the film although he only has a small role in it.
