Salman Khan's action-comedy to feature Jassie Gill, Siddharth Nigam: Report
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has several upcoming projects. One of them is an action-comedy film directed by Farhad Samji. Currently in the production stage, this yet-to-be-titled project is speculated to feature actors Venkatesh Daggubati, Pooja Hedge, Shehnaaz Gill, and Raghav Juyal. If the latest reports are to be believed, Jassie Gill and Siddharth Nigam have now joined the cast as well.
Why does this story matter?
We think this Khan starrer in question might be Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali (KEKD). Recently, Khan's brother-in-law Aayush Sharma exited KEKD reportedly citing creative differences with the production banner Salman Khan Films. The shooting for the film began almost a week ago in Mumbai with an extensive action sequence, as per reports. Daggubati had joined Khan on the first day of the shoot.
Gill, Nigam to appear as Khan's brothers
Reportedly, Gill and Nigam will essay the roles of Khan's brothers in the upcoming film. "Salman, Farhad, and the entire team were on the lookout for actors with some comic timing and after extensive search, have zeroed in on Jassie Gill, Siddharth Nigam, and Raghav to play the three brothers," a source told Pinkvilla. The new members have apparently already completed their look tests.
More cast members expected to be onboarded soon
The trio reportedly joined Khan for the shooting that took place in Mumbai on Monday, as per Pinkvilla's source. Shehnaaz, who made her acting debut with the Punjabi film Kala Shah Kala, will be making her debut in Bollywood with this. The source further added the cast will expand more and an official announcement revealing the film's official title will be made this week.
It's currently eyeing December 2022 release
Reportedly, the Salman Khan Films production will primarily be shot in Hyderabad starting from June. Devi Sri Prasad (Pushpa) will compose the tracks for the film, while V Manikandan will serve as the director of photography. The latter has also worked on the cinematography for Brahmastra. Some faces from Tollywood are expected to join the cast. The film is currently eyeing a December-end release.
