Subhash Ghai to don director`s hat again for Salman Khan starrer
Mumbai: Filmmaker Subhash Ghai has decided to wield the megaphone again and team up with Salman Khan for an action packed masala entertainer.
Ghai had stopped directing films to concentrate on his film school Whistling Woods International. But now he will soon be getting behind the camera.
He has two films at hand; one with Salman Khan that will roll out next year.
"I am returning to direction. I have two films... One with Salman that I will start next year and other I will start shooting this year," Ghai told PTI.
Earlier, the duo came together for `Yuvvraj` in 2008 but it was a box office failure. Ghai admits that he made a mistake by making a romantic-musical film with Khan.
"After `Wanted` he has emerged as the new action hero. Audience likes to see him in this zone. It would be foolish on my part to make romantic kind of films with him. We made a mistake by casting him in `Yuvvraj`," Ghai said.
"I have signed Salman for my film. Considering Salman`s superstar status and the love that he has got for doing action films, I would be making an action-masala kind of movie. He is Superman Salman. We are working on the script," he added.
The superstar, who is basking in the success of Kabir Khan`s spy flick `Ek Tha Tiger`, has his hands full with several projects like `Dabangg 2`, `Sher Khan` and `Kick`.
"He has other commitments. So once he is done with all of them. We will start working next year," Ghai said.
Considering, Salman`s health issues, Ghai says technology will help them in this. "Today technology had made things quite easy. So we will take help of this," he said.
Salman was suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, a nerve disorder causing intense pain in the face and had gone to the US for a surgery in August last year. Soon after he started shooting for Yash Raj Films` `Ek Tha Tiger`.
Talking about his other project, Ghai says, "I have another film that I will be working on first. This film will have fresh faces. We will start working this year and look for August release next year."
