'Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali' shoot begins: All about Salman Khan-starrer
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has started shooting for his much-anticipated film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. Jointly backed by Khan and director Farhad Samji, the movie has reportedly gone on floors with an action-packed scene in Mumbai. Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will also star Khan's brother-in-law and actor Aayush Sharma in a pivotal role. Here's everything we know about the highly anticipated film.
- The production of Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali was supposed to begin in April but seems to have been delayed by a month.
- Previously, Sajid Nadiadwala was going to produce the film, but he reportedly backed out owing to disagreements over the budget and script of the venture.
- Moreover, former Bigg Boss contestant Shehnaaz Gill will be making her debut in Bollywood with this.
According to media reports, the shooting commenced at the Golden Tobacco factory in Vile Parle, Mumbai. The set design team had constructed two massive sets here. Apparently, one of them resembled a metro station. Samji's team had to erect this to avoid crowd management problems in a real location. After this schedule, the team will next shoot at Mehboob Studio in Bandra.
In addition to Khan, Gill, and Sharma, the film co-stars Pooja Hegde (Thalapathy), Venkatesh Daggubati (F3), and Zaheer Iqbal (Notebook) in pivotal roles. The makers of the film have roped in the music director of blockbuster film Pushpa: The Rise, Devi Sri Prasad, to compose songs for the project. As mentioned above, Khan is co-producing the project under his Salman Khan Films banner.
While the exact storyline isn't out, reports suggest Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will be a tale of harmony within a multi-cultural family. "It'll portray the ups and downs in a family which celebrates both Eid and Diwali with equal fervor," a source had revealed before.
Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali is eyeing a December release for now. After that, Khan will appear in the much-awaited action saga Tiger 3. Narrating the story of international spies Tiger (Khan) and Zoya (Katrina Kaif), the Maneesh Sharma directorial will premiere on April 21, 2023 (targeting Eid). The 56-year-old will also make a guest appearance in Shah Rukh Khan's film Pathaan (January 25, 2023).
