Sallu Ki Shaadi dedicated to Salman Khan: Director
Mohammad Israr Ansari says he would like to dedicate his film Sallu Ki Shaadi to the superstar
Filmmaker Mohammad Israr Ansari says he would like to dedicate his forthcoming film Sallu Ki Shaadi to superstar Salman Khan. "My entire team, including me, want Salman Khan to support us. We want to meet him as fans," he says.
The comedy drama's tagline reads: 'Until Salman Khan gets married, I won't get married.'
Explaining the tagline, the director says, "At the time of my wedding, I did not know whether Salman Khan would get married or not. Had I known that he wouldn't get married, I would have stuck with my tagline. But I have interacted with many of Bhaijaan's fans and they all have the same thing to say, 'Till Salman Khan gets married, we won't marry'. I have three of my employees saying the same thing."
Asked about dedicating a film to the superstar, he says, "Salman Khan has millions of fans and they all talk about different parts of his life, but no one has really thought about his marriage. I wanted to talk about his wedding and express it directly to Salman Khan. But then I had a better idea, I thought about making a film and putting my views across to him. I am Salman Khan's fan and putting my request forward which I want him to consider... to get married."
The film stars Arshin Mehta. "I auditioned for the film. The title Sallu Ki Shaadi got me excited. When the director narrated the script to me, I found it really amazing and so, I wanted to be a part of the film," says the actor, who plays a heroine in the film.
"The name of my character is Alia. She is a very big fan of Salman Khan. She is very chubby and has all sorts of problems. One of the problems is that she wants to get married, and she wants to marry Sallu," says Arshin.
The film, which also stars Zeenat Aman, Kiran Kumar and Ravi Pandey, is slated for release on December 8.
