Mythri Movie Makers aims to make Bollywood debut with Salman Khan
Producer Naveen Yerneni is in talks with Salman’s brother-in-law and producer Atul Agnihotri for a potential collaboration
After delivering several blockbusters in Telugu, production giant Mythri Movie Makers is looking to venture into Hindi cinema with a film starring Salman Khan.
"Producers Naveen Yerneni and Ravi Shankar are looking to expand their production house and have begun talks to sign Salman Khan for their maiden Bollywood film. Recently, Naveen met Salman's brother-in-law and producer Atul Agnihotri to explore a potential collaboration. The duo got along well and Atul's response has been overwhelmingly positive. Another round of discussion will happen in a few days after which we will know if the film will be a remake or an original idea," reveals a source with direct knowledge of the development.
Mythri Movie Makers is currently producing Uppena, which marks the debut of actors Panja Vaisshnav Tej and Kriti Shetty. Directed by newcomer Buchi Babu Sana, the 'rustic revenge love story' that also stars Vijay Sethupathi is slated for release on April 2. The production house also has a film each with actors Pawan Kalyan and Prabhas in the pipeline.
