A couple of weeks ago, rumours were doing the rounds that Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was set to headline the official remake of South Korean film Veteran (2015). Though the makers remained tight-lipped about the project back then, now Khan has himself confirmed that he is doing the film.
Talking to a leading Indian daily, the superstar said that his filmmaker brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri has acquired the rights to remake the South Korean film in Hindi. He also added that they will commence work on the project only after he completes Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next directorial Inshallah.
“I am doing Veteran. Atul has the rights. It’s a nice film. We will do this film after Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film,” said the superstar.
If we take a look at Khan’s upcoming films, we find the superstar is going to be super busy in 2019 and 2020 as he has almost half a dozen projects to complete. His next film Bharat is gearing up for its release. He is about to begin shooting for Dabangg 3 in April, which will be followed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah.
After Inshallah, Khan will be busy with the remake of Veteran. Besides all these films, the superstar is also doing Kick 2 and an unannounced film with frequent collaborator Sooraj Barjatya.
