Salman Khan and Kangana Together
For Kangana Ranaut, year 2010 is proving to be rather experimental. After being oddly paired with Ajay Devgn in Ekta Kapoor’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Kangna has now been paired with none other than Salman Khan.
According to sources, Salman Khan has cast Kangna Ranaut in his first maiden production. The film will be directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and will have Salman playing the lead. It’s surprising that instead of casting Katrina Kaif or perhaps her look-alike Zarine Khan, Salman has chosen Kangna.
From her days at Vishesh Films (Gangster, Woh Lamhe), Kangna has indeed come a long way. A few days ago, as we reported, she signed the Sanjay Dutt production Rascals. Her latest catch, Salman Khan’s untitled production, is definitely a big accomplishment.
Talking about Salman casting Kangna, the source said, “Salman and Manjrekar wanted someone who could emote very strongly and look glamorous too.” Her 12 different hairdos in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, should take care of the glamour part.
When contacted, Mahesh Manjrekar confirmed that he is working on a film, which will be produced by Salman. “The film will have a lot of elements. It will be a hard-hitting film with its fair share of comedy,” he said.
The film is a remake of his recent Marathi film, Shikshanacha Aaicha Gho. Hesitant about divulging more details on the film, Manjrekar clarified that the project is at a very nascent stage right now. He said, “It is too early to talk about it since we are still working out a few details. The picture will be clear in the next five days.”
