There is no denying the fact that superstar Salman Khan is the most powerful force to reckon with at the box-office. He has that Midas touch which draws audiences to theatres and helps producers and distributors earn big at the cash counter. Today, he has reached that point in his professional life where every filmmaker wants to work with him. While some are keen to begin new projects with him, others want to cash in on the brand value of their previous films with the superstar and develop them into a franchise.
Reports about sequels to Salman Khan’s ‘No Entry’ (2005) and ‘Wanted’ have been doing the rounds for years now. However, there has never been any official confirmation neither from producers’ side nor from Khan himself. But now, Salman has finally spoken about sequels to the blockbuster films. During a recent media interaction, when the actor was asked about sequels to ‘No Entry’ and ‘Wanted’, this is what he had to say, “There is no ‘No Entry’ or ‘Wanted’ sequel happening. I am doing ‘Bharat’, ‘Dabangg 3’ and ‘Sher Khan’. The ‘Kick 2’ script isn’t ready at the moment and then there is a dance film with Remo and one Bhansali film when he comes and narrates it. We recently discussed it,” the megastar reveals.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan is gearing up for the release of his much-awaited, mega-budgeted action entertainer, ‘Race 3’. Also starring Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala, the Remo D’souza directorial is scheduled to release on 15th June, 2018.
Right after the release of ‘Race 3’, Salman begins work on his next ‘Bharat’. To be helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, who has previously directed the actor in ‘Sultan’ (2016) and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ (2017), ‘Bharat’ is a co-production between Khan’s brother-in-law, Atul Kulkarni, and T-Series head honcho, Bhushan Kumar. The movie releases on Eid, next year.
