Salman Khan is set to co-produce a Canadian film about an Indian immigrant called ‘Dr Cabbie’, which will be directed by Jean Francois Pouliot.
This will be the star’s second outing as producer after the successful children’s film ‘Chillar Party’ (2011).
“Dr. Cabbie”, to be directed by Jean Francois Pouliot, tells the story of an unemployed Indian doctor who drives a cab in Canada and becomes a local hero when he converts his taxi into a mobile clinic. ‘Dr. Cabbie’ is the story of an Indian immigrant and it has an inherent universal appeal,” Khan said in a statement.
The shoot of the film got underway earlier this week. It stars Vinay Virmani, Adrianne Palicki, and Kunal Nayyar, best known for his role in the TV sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’.
The cast also includes Rizwan Manji from the TV series “Outsourced”.
