The entire Bollywood fraternity knows how eager Karan Johar is to get Salman Khan to do a film for him.
Bizarrely , nothing between Karan and Salman seems to work out. They were supposed to collaborate on a big-budget period film Shudhi to be directed by Karan Malhotra. Salman kept Karan hanging on for nearly a year before saying no.
More recently Salman and Karan Johar were to collaborate on another historical The Battle Of Salgrahi as co-producers. That too has been put on backburner.
To get Salman into Dharma Karan Johar has now hit on a golden formula. Karan will co-producer Salman’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma’s debut film.
The project that will take off by year-end will have a topnotch leading lady opposite Aayush. It was reported that Salman’s buddy Katrina Kaif will fill in the heroine’s space with Aayush. But sources close to the project refute this rumour.
“Katrina won’t suit Aayush. Salman Bhai is looking at a younger face opposite Aayush,” says the source.
We strongly recommend Alia Bhatt.
