Sohail Khan’s ambitious venture Sher Khan seems to have gone through certain changes and apparently, Salman Khan’s look which was supposed to have shades of Tarzan has been redesigned.
According to sources, Salman was about to go for an image change and adapt some traits of Tarzan. However, now the script has gone through changes and the film will go on floors by end of the year.
Sohail had also expressed that he wants the best for Sher Khan and is not going to leave any stone unturned for the film. Talking about the movie, Sohail had earlier said, “The film will be a bit difficult as it will have two shers (tigers) in it, one is Salman Khan and other, the real one (he chuckled). I want to learn about the technology, as I will be directing after nine years.”
“It will be a high profile film of Bhai, so even I am learning 3D, but will take some time to get to its final result, so will talk about it then,” he added.

It seems the stars are truly on Salman Khan’s side. For his forthcoming Ek Tha Tiger, Sallu will enjoy a six-day extended weekend at the box office, possibly ensuring that he breaks a box office record or two. Wondering how that’s possible?
Now, Sallu and YRF have apparently zoomed in on August 15 as the release date for Ek Tha Tiger. With the public holiday falling on a Wednesday, only a Thursday and Friday fall between the action adventure and the true weekend. But the fun doesn’t stop on Sunday. Id falls on Monday, August 20, ensuring that the audience gets a prolonged chance to view the shenanigans of the Dabangg superstar.
A similarly fortunate arrangement had immensely benefited Sallu’s previous release, Bodyguard, with it enjoying an uninterrupted five-day long weekend. But Ek Tha Tiger has surpassed that as well. “You can expect a tremendous outcome for the film since the challenge of what we in the industry call the ‘Dreaded Monday’ has been taken care of as well. The biggest of films are otherwise known to suffer some drop in collections on the Monday following their release weekend. It should reap the benefit of four holidays immediately since its release,” said a veteran trade pundit. Bodyguard became Sallu’s biggest ever grosser, with its total earnings amounting to Rs 140 million, but Ek Tha Tiger is expected to surpass even that.
YRF however, has maintained a steady silence on their strategy. “We are yet to make an announcement regarding the release date for Ek Tha Tiger,” was all Rafiq Gangjee, vice president — marketing and communications, YRF said.
