On Saturday, Salman Khan was set to host a big bash to celebrate the success of his last release, Bodyguard. But the actor, who arrived in the city for a few days at about 2.30 am on Wednesday, was too exhausted and busy to make merry. Now, the party has been shifted to next month.
The actor will soon depart for Dublin, where he’s shooting for Yash Raj Films’ Ek Tha Tiger (ETT) opposite Katrina Kaif. He will be back in India on October 13 after wrapping up the schedule of the Kabir Khan directorial.
Confirms Bodyguard producer and Salman’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri, “Yes, we were planning a party. But he is very tired because of his operation and then immediate shooting schedule. Plus, he is back in India only for a few days to shoot for Bigg Boss. Then, he has to go back immediately for the schedule of ETT. So, there’s hardly any time to fit in a bash.”
Salman apparently wanted to host a lavish bash for Bodyguard, which is why he didn’t want to do it half-heartedly. “He is keen on calling all his industry friends and organise a large do. Breaking Dabangg’s (2010) record is no small feat and obviously calls for a big celebration,” says a spokesperson from Reliance Entertainment, the producers of Bodyguard that has already crossed the Abhinav Kashyap film’s total collection (Rs 145 crore).
For the uninitiated, Salman is back in town after undergoing surgery to fix his nerve disorder in the US last month. He is likely to attend the launch of the fifth season of the reality show Bigg Boss, after which he departs for Dublin. He left for the US on August 29 to get his Trigeminal Neuralgia treated. Almost ten days after he underwent the medical procedure on August 30, the actor started shooting for ETT.
