Salman Khan set to turn producer
The star to make his foray into filmmaking under his charity organisation's banner
Looks like Salman Khan is planning to take the workings of his charity organisation a notch higher. The actor who has been part of Bollywood since 25 years is planning to launch his production house under the group’s banner. Insiders say Salman will be producing five films under his banner.
His NGO already retails clothes, watches and accessories as part of its merchandising. Says a source, “Salman has given breaks to a lot of people, including Katrina Kaif and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Even his brothers Sohail and Arbaaz are now involved in filmmaking. His NGO has grown with leaps and bounds and bhai realised it was time to take it forward.”
The star’s friends say he is already in talks with many directors to make films, one of which will be the remake of Hero with Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. Two of the other projects in his kitty are Mahesh Manjrekar’s Shikshanachhya Aaicha Gho and Dr Cabbie with Vinay Virmani. A friend of the star rubbished the rumour.
