Salman Khan is currently busy shooting for Kabir Khan’s Tubelight. He will next be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai, which is the sequel to his 2012 blockbuster, Ek Tha Tiger. But the choice of his next film comes as a surprise. 

The Dabangg actor will be playing an ageing dancer and a father of a 13-year-old girl in choreographer-turned-director Remo D’Souza’s dance drama, which is not titled so far. The actor will be going through intense dance training sessions to get into the character. 

He recently revealed more about the project in an interview. “It’s a film about dancing. Like the Hollywood Step Up franchise. I’m going to be a properly trained dancer. You know how painful that is? But I’ve always believed that effortless hard work should be seen on-screen,” he said. 

Khan is known for creating his own dance steps at times, against the instructions of the choreographer. In the Koffee With Karan episode, Arbaaz Khan also pointed out how Khan did the same for 'Munni Badnaam' song in Dabangg (2010). So it seems D’Souza is in for some challenge here. 

The Salman Khan you may not remember

The Sultan star also recently stated that he has no qualms about playing a father to a 13-year-old. He was quoted in an interview saying, “I played a father in Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai when I was in my 30s. I’ve been there and done that. And in my next film, I’m playing the father to a 13-year-old girl.”
