Mumbai: It’s not Shah Rukh Khan’s friends alone who are rooting in favour of his archrival Salman Khan but vice versa too. Salman’s best pals and industry honchos, who have always been loyal to him, are now opting for King Khan. And taking the lead here is Sallu’s best pal Sajid Nadiadwala, who has signed Shah Rukh Khan for his next film to be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
As for what Sajid Nadiadwala means to Salman is the same as what Karan Johar is to Shah Rukh Khan. They are like family. As per sources, Salman and Sajid are like brothers.
But now, the relationship is bound to get strained as Nadiadwala has signed SRK for his adaptation of Chetan Bhagat`s ‘Two States’. And this business deal hasn’t gone down well with Salman Khan.
As per reports, the film was earlier to star Saif and Priyanka and was to be directed by Siddharth Anand. Now, it will star King Khan and a new girl, and will be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
Confirming the news a source told a daily, "Sajid is producing Vishal Bhardwaj`s film starring SRK. It`s an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat`s ‘Two States’, and Sajid has bought the rights to the novel. When the directors changed, Vishal approached Shah Rukh for a narration. SRK loved the script."
As of now everyone is on board and Sajid is too much excited to work with SRK. We wonder what Salman has to say to this?
