Salman Khan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu are reportedly all set to unite for Karan Johar-produced action flick. The movie will be directed by Shershaah fame director Vishnuvardhan.
Earlier there was a strong buzz that Dharma was considering roping in Samantha or Trisha Krishnan for the role in this action flick. But now there are strong reports that Samantha is the leading lady who will romance the handsome Dabangg Khan on the big screen.
The buzz is that Karan Johar was keen to get a famous South Indian actress as the female lead for this movie in which the Bharat actor plays the role of a paramilitary officer.
After the massive success of Pathaan which was also the debut movie of Southern superstar Nayanthara, the Dharma boss wanted to introduce a fresh, new face in Bollywood.
While Samantha has already worked in The Family Man 2 and won hearts with her splendid work as Raji, she is yet to officially make her debut in Bollywood.
So, it seems this Salman Khan movie is going to be the debut project for the Kushi actress who is currently struggling to bring back her career on track.
Even for Salman Khan, a big hit is a must as his last few movies have been criticised badly for poor presentation and story. Soon he will be seen in Tiger 3 which also features Katrina Kaif as the female lead.
There is a high anticipation for Tiger 3 in which Shah Rukh Khan will be doing a cameo as Pathaan.
On the other hand, Sam has Citadel India with Varun Dhawan which will be released on OTT.
However, this pairing of Samantha and Salman Khan is unique and has already triggered the interest of fans who would love to see how the Bollywood superstar woos his onscreen lady love.
