Kabir Khan and Salman Khan seem set to reunite for their third project; may lock Eid 2017 for big screen release
After the super success of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' (2015), Kabir Khan is said to be ready with his next project and it will star none other than Salman Khan. The yet-to-be-titled film would be their third collaboration — the filmmaker-actor duo had teamed up for the first time for 'Ek Tha Tiger' (2012).

'Ek Tha Tiger' broke all box office records the year it released, grossing over Rs 200 crore within a fortnight. 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', on the other hand, made more than Rs 330 crore and was adjudged the Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment at the 63rd National Awards, which were announced last week.
