No one can deny that Salman Khan is one of the biggest superstars of Bollywood and has a huge base of diehard fans. But there was a time 10 years back when he signed a few flop films such as God Tussi Great Ho, Yuvvraaj, Main Aurr Mrs Khanna and London Dreams.
And then came Wanted, around the same time, which was a blockbuster hit. Wanted had made Salman Khan one of the most loved actors of Hindi cinema once again.
Wanted is the remake of Telugu film Pokiri and also stars Ayesha Takia, Vinod Khanna and Prakash Raj and directed by Prabhudheva. It became the second highest-grossing Bollywood film of the year and Salman Khan was, in a way, reinvented. On being asked about the same, director Prabhudeva who will be working with the superstar again in Dabangg 3, said,
“It has been 10 years since then, and I don’t want to look back. It’s been a great experience. I don’t take any credit because who am I to rediscover Salman Khan? He is a superstar. I was new to Bollywood then and he was a superstar, and he trusted me so much.”
Fans are still eagerly waiting for a sequel of the film Wanted. Filmmaker and Choreographer Prabhudheva spilled the beans about it and shared,
“There are no plans for Wanted 2 for now, but you never know what the future holds for you. For now, I am working with Salman again in Dabangg 3 and that’s a great opportunity for me.”
Also starring Arbaaz Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, Dabangg 3 is slated to hit theatres on 20 December 2019.
