Salman Khan has reportedly agreed to star in Karan Johar’s next movie!
Karan has a long-standing working relationship with Salman’s alleged acting rival Shah Rukh Khan.
The Times of India, an insider said: “After Kurbaan, Rensil [D'Silva] is directing a fantasy-action caper on the lines of Ocean’s Eleven.
“When Karan Johar heard the script, he absolutely fell in love with it. Both Karan and Rensil felt Salman was perfect for the main part.”
Salman’s last project with Johar was the 1998 film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
It’s been reported by Masala.com that Karan Johar’s fiancee belongs to one of the richest and most influential families in Lagos and has known him for years.
Thirty-one year old Vandana Melwani is an Economics and English literature graduate and after completing a brief stint as a management consultant, she went on to get her MBA. Currently, she heads her family’s real estate business in New York.
The love-story apparently took flight during the filming of ‘My Name Is Khan’ when Karan was in New York with mum Hiroo who suggested he meet up their old friend’s daughter Vandana. He was dreading it and decided to have a quick dinner.
But everything changed when he saw her walk in and 45 minutes later, Karan was smitten. She was gorgeous, witty and more importantly, not intimidated by his star status.
