Salman Khan To essay Detective In Atul Agnihotri's Next Film Veteran
Salman Khan, who is gearing up for his much-awaited film Bharat, will next play detective in Atul Agnihotri’s film. According to news agency PTI, Atul Agnihotri said that Salman Khan will essay the role of a detective in an official adaptation of Veteran after Bharat.
Atul has reportedly acquired the right of the original film. “I saw the film and I liked it. I thought it is an opportunity to make it with him. It is a class film. I showed him the film and he felt the same. Salman has given a go ahead. He will play the detective in the film,” Atul told PTI.
“Adaptation is never literal, adaptations are always a starting point. After that, you blend it according to the sensibilities of the audience. It will have many big things, I have to make it bigger and larger as the expectations are huge every time Salman does a film. We hope to start sometime next year,” he added.
The original film was released in 2015, whose story revolves around a detective, who hunts down a young and successful man running a crime syndicate.
It is to be noted that Salman Khan’s upcoming film Bharat is also a remake version of Korean super hit film Ode to My Father and co-produced by Atul.
When he was asked why Korean remakes, Atul said that he watched movies in all languages and it just happened that his heart was set on Bharat and Veteran. When he was quizzed about his daughter’s Bollywood debut, he said that Alizeh Agnihotri is working on the sets of Dabangg 3 to gain knowledge before making her foray into Hindi film industry.
He added, “She is preparing (to enter the industry). I am happy the way she is approaching things. It is going great. I am happy. She is not working as AD, she observes things, she doesn’t have a committed position.”
