Salman Khan's 'Sher Khan' to release during Eid 2013

With all eyes on ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ (2012) releasing around Eid this year, there’s a question mark hanging over which Salman Khan film will release during Eid in 2013.

According to sources, brother Sohail Khan is doing all his best to ready ‘Sher Khan’ but the film is still at the pre-production stage. He plans to get the script ready this month and assemble the cast and crew. ‘Sher Khan’ is expected to go on the floors in November this year.

A source told BollywoodHungama, “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.”

‘Dabbang 2’ (2012) releases at Christmas this year.
