Salman Khan approached for yet another south remake, ‘Arya 2’
The actor is considering the option of starring in yet another remake, and honestly we won’t be surprised if he gives it a nod, after all, remakes seem to be extremely lucky for Mr Khan
After Wanted, Dabangg, Bodyguard, Kick and Kanchana the actor has been approached for yet another remake. Keen to have Salman as a part of the project, Ronnie Screwwala approached Salman for the lead role in the Hindi version of the Telugu blockbuster Arya 2. We think the actor should accede to the producer’s request without thinking twice as the film is a love story and it would be quite a refreshing break for Salman to step into the shoes of a lover boy and leave his violent streak behind. Sallu Bhai apparently was also approached for the remake of Mahesh Babu’s Dookudu, but the actor didn’t take that up as it required him to slip into a Khaki uniform. And after playing the quintessential street-smart cop in his previous hits Dabangg and Wanted, the actor doesn’t want to become repetitive. Well, we must say Khan bhai has come up with an amazingly cool strategy of doing remakes to keep his filmy career intact. Anyway, originality is an alien word in B-town and Mr Khan is just another victim of this immensely popular trend.
