Both Salman and Shah Rukh seem to have no time to accommodate Kamal Haasan's dream projects in their crammed work calendar
Stars don't seem to be favouring Kamal Haasan right now. After a harrowing time, when every A-list Bollywood star was backing out of his magnum opus Vishwaroopam, the same seems to be happening once more.
Kamal who has been trying to make big as a producer/director in Bollywood for a while now, disappointment seems to have knocked on his door once more.
After SRK backed out of Kamal's remake of the South superhit Vettayadu Villayadu, we now hear that Salman may not have the time to star in the remake of Armour of God that is being planned with the star and Jackie Chan.
Says a source, "Salman is shooting the Dabangg sequel at the moment and then he has the promotions for another project coming up. After that, he is committed to Shirish Kunder's Kick. There is a lot of post-production work too, in between, that is going to keep him busy. Seems like this year, he will have no time to devote to any other project."
What we also hear is that Salman will be co-directing The Dabangg sequel with Arbaaz Khan, which will practically take up all of his time. Adds the source, "He hasn't even met Kamal to talk about this project. He has been shooting continuously for the film."
The South superstar, however, seems unhappy about the development, as he does not want to make any compromises. Adds the source, "SRK was always on his mind for the remake of the film, and similarly he wants Salman for this film.
Even if it's for a cameo, he does not want to make any compromise as far as quality goes since it's going to be the most expensive film of his life." However we also hear that Sallu is on very good terms with Kamal and as and when the film goes on floors, he will decide how his dates can be worked out.
