Salman to not do Ravindra Kaushik’s Biopic Black Tiger for this reason
A while back Salman Khan revealed that he was in talks for the official biopic of Indian Spy, Ravindra Kaushik with director Rajkumar Gupta. However, later it was reported that the Kick actor will not be doing the film. Talking about the same a source close to the actor revealed that the reason Salman is not doing the movie is due to his Tiger franchise.“Salman Khan is already doing a spy film in the Tiger Franchise which will be growing from strength to strength in the years to come by. He didn’t want to do another spy film, which will lead to a comparison between the two characters. Interestingly, even the legendary Indian spy, Ravindra Kaushik had the code name Tiger, making things even more similar. Hence, after a series of discussions with his team, he let go off Black Tiger,” the source said.
“After confirming with Salman about his involvement in the project, Rajkumar Gupta didn’t renew the rights. They eventually lapsed and were acquired by Anurag Basu. The film will now be made by Anurag Basu, who also has Salman at the back of his mind,” the source further revealed.
“Anurag Basu’s vision for Ravindra Kaushik is very different from the Tiger franchise. However, he is still not 100 percent sure about the casting of Black Tiger. There is also a chance of him approaching a younger actor to play the lead role. We will have a clear picture on Black Tiger in one month,” the source concluded.
