After Race 3, Salman Khan to produce film with Bobby Deol in the lead
Mumbai - 05 Jun 2018 1:00 IST
For all his faults, Salman Khan has always been known to be a generous man, one who will go out his way to help friends.
Khan has already been criticized for helping some of his friends get work through Race 3. But now it appears that Khan has taken it upon himself to resurrect the film career of Bobby Deol.
The superstar will be producing a low-budget film with Bobby Deol in the solo lead. Khan will not only produce the film, but he is taking keen interest in getting the right script and a director for Deol.
"I have been looking at scripts and we need to finalize the right script for Bobby now. I am personally looking into the story and locking the director for the film,” Khan told the Mumbai Mirror tabloid newspaper.
"The script will bring Bobby back as a Greek god," Khan claimed. "Back in the day, Bobby was fondly called ‘Jattallion’ by friends. It was a grand way of describing him — a good-looking and charming star. And that’s what we will bring him back as.
"The production will be well-timed, will have the right budget and complete mass appeal. Action and dance will be taken to the next level too. If Bobby thought he worked hard for Race 3, he doesn’t know what’s coming."
Bobby Deol has been close to the Khan family, in particular Khan's younger brother, actor-filmmaker Sohail. According to an industry source, Bobby Deol's father, the veteran star Dharmendra, himself asked Khan to help resurrect his son's career.
Bobby Deol has made no secret of his debt to Salman Khan, crediting him with motivating him during his low phase.
