“Shortcut Romeo” director Susi Ganeshan is already working on his next project, a 3D superhero action film and wants to cast superstar Salman Khan for the lead role.
“We are looking for an A-lister. Due to the social message in the film, I am thinking of Salman Khan,” Ganeshan told IANS.
The shooting for the yet-untitled film is expected to commence at the year-end and Ganeshan added: “The script is already over… It will release next year.”

★ (Paper) Ranbir Kapoor’s favourite superhero is Salman Khan !
Here’s something directors and actors of this young superstar should read- Ranbir Kapoor quoted in an upcoming television show that he was ‘not a big fan of superhero films’ and neither does he ‘ have the burning desire of being a superhero.’
Given the rise of super-hero films in recent cinema, like Krrish and Ra.One, one would expect Ranbir to want to try his hand at the genre as well. But he adds to his statement, “I believe that to make a good superhero film you need to have a good story rather than spend crores to make it.” Ranbir holds his contemporaries and co-actors in the industry in high esteem, as he thinks that they are superheroes in their own right. “I love films of Ajay (Devgn), Salman (Khan) and Sanjay (Dutt), I loved Aamir (Khan) in Ghajini,” says the heartthrob.
But when asked which his favourite superhero is- he answers, “My favourite superhero character is Chulbul Pandey from Dabangg.”
What say, Salman bhai?
(Paper)★What Happened When! Bodyguard scared a superhero away; @BeingSalmanKhan @iamsrk found themselves in the first class cabin of a Mumbai-Delhi flight recently…!
Let’s be honest. Everyone wants to know what will go down if friends-turned-foes Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan ever come face to face. And last week, when that actually happened, something totally unexpected occured.
Both Khans found themselves in the first class cabin of a Mumbai-Delhi flight recently. While Salman was travelling to the capital for a shoot of Ek Tha Tiger, SRK was going there to attend a brand-related event. The ‘Bodyguard’ was already in his seat when the ‘Don’ got onto the flight. And the minute SRK spotted his frenemy, he turned around and got off the flight without a word to anyone.
A eyewitness reveals, “Salman was already on the flight with his entourage. Suddenly there was tension in the air. When he turned to see why, he saw SRK standing there. The minute the RA.One actor saw Salman, he began dialling on his mobile phone and walked out of the cabin.” Shah Rukh’s crew stayed back on the flight. It is learnt that he left for Delhi on a later flight.
A source close to SRK says, “He didn’t leave the flight on seeing Salman. He was slated to travel on a private jet, but at the last minute, there was a problem and he decided to go on a commercial flight. When he was on the flight, he got a call saying that the private jet was ready, so he chose to fly by that instead.”
After the incident, a person close to Salman put up a status update saying, “Bodyguard scared a Superhero away!”
