Sholay, Zanjeer, Don, Shaan, Deewar…blockbusters in the 1970s and 80s were synonymous with scriptwriter duo Salim-Javed. And now, for the first time since the Salman Khan-Raveena Tandon starrer Patthar Ke Phool, 21 years back, Salim Khan (Salim saab, as he is fondly referred to in the industry) is being brought on to supervise the script of Sohail Khan’s directorial Sher Khan.
The film that already has on board two writers – Rumi Jaffery and Dilip Shukla, will now have Salim saab to pilot the plot. He will be credited for his special creative contribution.
Confirming the news, Sohail told Mirror, “My father is the script doctor on the project. He’s guiding all of us. We all are counting on him to make Sher Khan one of the most special films in Bhai’s (Salman Khan) career.”
Speaking about the new task at hand, Salim saab told Mirror, “I am there in the scriptwriting process of Sher Khan to point out their mistakes and not to breathe down their necks. I don’t want to take away the credit from whatever those kids are doing.”
Stating that he is a ‘farmer by nature’, Salim saab continued, “I like to nurture talent as much as trees. I’ve to admit they’re capable of looking after the script. But since they’ve asked me to help, I presume they think I’m better informed and cleverer than them.”
Apparently in the past, on a few occasions, when Salim saab’s suggestion was not accepted by Salman and Sohail, the films More >
As Sher Khan, a braveheart Pathan, the actor will get a complete makeover to appeal to kids. And using his mop to mop up baddies will be one of his USPs
Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; June 12, 2012)
From being the actor who had to get hair weaving done to counter a receding hairline, to playing a Samson-like character with special powers in his tresses, Salman Khan has surely come a long way. In his upcoming project Sher Khan, to be directed by broher Sohail Khan, he will play a super-hero with special powers in his shoulder-length hair. What’s more, in keeping with the Bollywood legacy of Sher Khan being a pathan ( a la Pran in Prakash Mehra’s 1973 blockbuster Zanjeer), Salman’s character too, will have similar roots.
Interestingly, last time Salman played a Pathan was in Saawan Kumar’s 1991 film Sanam Bewafa. But Salman Khan’s Sher Khan will not be the stereotypical gender-mixing (hum bolegi, tum sunegi) Pathan. In the words of writer Rumi Jaffery, Sohail’s home production will “feature Salman in a look he has never tried before.” Needless to say, this superhero will be quite different from Superman, Spider Man or the indigenous Krrish or G.One.
In an earlier version of the script, Sher Khan was meant to be a South Indian action star a la Dabangg or Rowdy Rathore. “Kona Venkatesh who wrote Salman’s Ready was summoned to do the screenplay for the film. Now, Sohail and Salman have changed their mind. They roped in Rumi Jaffery to write an action film for the kids More >

Mallika Sherawat will play a shaadi-shuda bhartiya nari, covered from head to toe, in Case No 99
Mauli Singh (MUMBAI MIRROR; January 14, 2011) Nana Patekar; Mallika Sherawat(r)
Voyeurs will be disappointed. Siren Mallika Sherawat, who announced her entry into B-town with 17 kisses and went stark nude in her last film Hisss, will now be seen in a deglamourised avatar in her next, Case No 99.
Covered up from head to toe, Sherawat will be seen sharing screen space with veterans like Nana Patekar and Naseeruddin Shah. We wonder how the audience will react to her bhartiya nari avatar.
The producer of the film, C G Patel, whose United Six is releasing on February 4, confirms Mallika on board, “Yes, we have signed Mallika and paid her the signing amount, but some formalities are yet to be finalised. Nana, who is a great friend, is also on board and is keenly supervising the project.
We are still in talks with Naseerji.” Nana Patekar will essay the role of a CBI officer in this suspense thriller about an insurance scam of 100 crores.
Did Sherawat, whose USP has been her bindaas attitude, have any reservations in playing a sari-clad, married woman? “Not at all! In fact she loved the script. She has a very powerful role and strong dialogue with Nana. People will be surprised to see her in the film.”
Dilip Shukla of Dabangg fame has written the dialogues for the film which goes on floors in March. The film will be directed by debutant director More >

There was a time when masala action flicks were the order of the day. Such films were regularly churned out and it had a dedicated audience who wholeheartedly endorsed this kind of cinema. However, as time passed, the number of such films began to decline drastically. But still the love for these flicks hasn’t died down and we won’t mind watching them once in a while. Aamir Khan’s Ghajini re-popularized the trend followed by Salman Khan’s Wanted. And Sallu is now back with another sureshot masala entertainer Dabangg, a film that is meant to just fully entertain the viewers! Nothing new in terms of storyline, what works in Dabangg is solely Salman and his brilliant performance!
The story of the movie: Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) is a fearless but corrupt police officer in the town of Laalgunj, Uttar Pradesh. He family consists of his mother Naini (Dimple Kapadia), step father Prajapati Pandey (Vinod Khanna) and step brother Makhanchan aka Makkhi (Arbaaz Khan), the latter two who are hated by Chulbul due to bitter experiences of childhood. Chulbul at this point comes across Rajo (Sonakshi Sinha), a girl with a unique perspective of life and he instantly falls for her. Things were going smoothly for Chulbul when his world turns upside down with a sudden catastrophe. A ruthless villain enters his life-Cheddi Singh (Sonu Sood). How he fights evil and emerges triumphant is what the rest of the film is all about.
Dabangg at several points reminds of More >
