Superstar Salman Khan is gearing up to launch a unique cop show on Sony Entertainment Television. Produced by his production house, Salman Khan Films, the show will hit the airwaves next month. While Khan is a popular host on TV, this show will mark his entry in Indian television space as a producer.
The show revolves around Mumbai cops and sheds light on their lives on and off duty. The cast and crew had been finalized well in advance and the regular shooting started a couple of weeks ago at a studio in Mumbai.
According to a source, Mahesh Limaye, the National Award-winning director of the 2014 Marathi film Yellow, who has worked with Salman on Dabangg and Dabangg 2 as a cinematographer, will direct the show.
“Writer Sridhar Raghavan, who has written films like Rohan Sippy’s light-hearted Bluffmaster and Rajkumar Santoshi multi-starrer Khakee, among others, has written the script,” informs the source.
Actors Mukul Dev and Pooja Gor have been roped in to headline the untitled show.
