Looks like Salman Khan has finalised his Eid 2013 release. It reports are to be believed, Sher Khan which goes on floors by January 2013, will lock horns with Akshay Kumar's Once Upon A Time In Mumbai 2.
Director Sohail Khan confirmed to Business of Cinema: “I start shooting Sher Khan from January 2013. I start casting and finalizing locations from next month.”
A source close to the project tells the website: “It’s God’s decree, After Tiger, Bhai is destined to play Sher. We’re going ahead with Sher Khan for Eid 2013."
The project would be different from Dabangg and Ek Tha Tiger and will have more special effects than stunts. “More than Salmanbhai’s stunts there will be lots of special-effects in the film. And that’s why Sher Khan would take longer than usual in the post-production. But Bhai is very clear on this. Sher Khan would have to be ready for Eid, come what may," the source added.
As per reports Angela Johnson and Priyanka Chopra are in talks for the film.
