Now Salman Khan to play a superhero

After playing Tiger in Ek Tha Tiger, Salman Khan will undergo a makeover for his role in Sohail Khan's Sher Khan. And guess what? The actor is all set to play a superhero with special powers for the first time in his career, reports Mumbai Mirror.

The actor will reportedly play a pathan who sports shoulder-length hair.

Writer Rumi Jaffery tells the tabloid that the film "features Salman in a look he has never tried before."

"Though he has had a massive fan following among kids, none of Salmanbhai's films have been specially targeted at children. Dilip Shukla (who's also writing Dabangg 2) and I are designing bhai's first film aimed at the young viewers," added Rumi.

But the actor will play the superhero bit differently. "He will be a hero that kids can identify with. The action scenes won't have him beating up a dozen goons single-handedly. He has done these things many times before," Rumi was quoted by the tabloid.

Interestingly a year back Salman was not game for superhero roles. Looks like he has changed his mind now. "I am not doing a superhero film. I don't want to be bitten by makdi. I don't want to be a spider man. I don't want to wear red underwear from outside. I want to be 'Sal man'," Salman had said earlier.
