While Salman is shooting for Yash Raj Films’ Ek Tha Tiger and Sohail Khan is reportedly planning Sher Khan with his brother, the actor’s old-time ‘frenemy’ Vivek Oberoi, is said to have gone ahead and signed on a film called Sher this week, to be directed by Soham Shah. Whether Vivek will play the title role in it or not is yet to be ascertained.
But Vivek, who is already on a high with five films namely Krrish 3, Kismat Love Paisa Dilli, Zilla Ghaziabad, Jayanta Bhai and a Masti sequel under his belt, is reported to begin shooting for Sher this month itself. Which means, it’s even likely that he could beat Salman to the release of Ek Tha Tiger and of course, Sher Khan! Whoa!
When we asked Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar about these ‘star wars’ likely to turn into ‘Sher wars’ in the media, he brushed it off saying, “What difference does it make? Indian media has seen a paradigm shift in the last five years. Media is a business now and all so-called ‘wars’ are just part of good selling.”
On being probed further, the publicist remarked, “Why single out Salman Khan or Vivek Oberoi? Bollywood is a very big and extended family. There is space for everyone. Yahan sab sher hai!”
