Salman Khan's next "Ek Tha Tiger" is nearing the release and this will be his 3rd back to back Eid release after 'Wanted" and "Bodyguard". But if you think after claiming Aamir's territory Christmas this year with "Dabangg 2", he will be slowing down- think again!
Salman has finalized his plans for next year Eid also. He has locked "Sher Khan" for Eid 2013. Film will be directed by Sohail Khan and its a complete entertainer targeted on kids. There was some contemplation between Salman's next with Shirish Kunder "Kick" and 'Sher Khan" but Salman went ahead with later.
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"."
Film will start in November 2012.
