Salman wants his brother Sohail Khan's Sher Khan to be his Eid 2013 release. And Sohail who had no clue about Salman's plans (probably because Salman himself doesn't know what he is planning) is thrown into a frenzy to finish pre-production and start shooting to make it into the Eid deadline.
Says a source close to the project, "With Dabangg 2 locked for release in Aamir Khan's Christmas slot, the question of which film would make it into Salman's Eid 2013 slot was being seriously discussed. Since it was a relatively simpler film to make, Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick was expected to be ready before Sher Khan which is going to be Salman's most complicated film in terms of technique. Sohail needed a full year at least to shoot the film and then at least another 3 months for post-production as the film requires extensive special effects. Now to meet the Eid deadline he must complete the entire film, post-production included, in 10 months. But Bhai is keen to bring Sher Khan for next Eid. It's his gift to his kid fans. And as of now he won't be doing any other film after Dabangg 2, except Sher Khan."
Sohail who has gone into the fast-forward mode said, "Eid 2013 is really cutting it close. But I am definitely going to make an effort to make it for Eid next year. I hope to finish the final draft of the script by August and then quickly assemble the cast and crew. Inshallah, we roll in November and release for Eid."
