If reports are to be believed, Salman Khan has signed on Kangana Ranaut opposite himself for his maiden production venture, to be directed by Mahesh Manjrekar.
Strangely Salman has not been keen on signing Katrina for any of his recent projects. In the remake of South flick Bodyguard, he recommended Deepika Padukone's name to Atul Agnihotri. And now he wants to work with Kangana.
A source tells Mumbai Mirror, “Salman and Manjrekar wanted someone who could emote very strongly and look glamorous too.” Her 12 different hairdos in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, should take care of the glamour part."Mahesh Manjrekar confirms to Mumbai Mirror that he is working on a film, which will be produced by Salman. "The film will have a lot of elements. It will be a hard-hitting film with its fair share of comedy," he said.
The film is a remake of his recent Marathi film, Shikshanacha Aaicha Gho. Manjrekar however refused to divulge anything further.
He says, “It is too early to talk about it since we are still working out a few details. The picture will be clear in the next five days.”
