Mumbai: It seems that Salman Khan and Yash Raj scion Aditya Chopra have made up their minds to make amends and start afresh. The two Bollywood bigwigs, who were always at loggerheads, are now on the threshold of strengthening their ‘once’ sour relationship- thanks to brother and producer-director Sohail.
The ‘Dabangg’ star’s brother is leaving no stone unturned to bridge the gap the once estranged Salman Khan and Aditya Chopra from each other. Bhai is working with the Yash Raj banner for the first time ever in Kabir Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ opposite his ex-ladylove Katrina Kaif.
Sohail has been spending a lot of time with Aditya to manage Salman’s dates for his film ‘Sher Khan’ along with ‘Ek Tha Tiger’.
Talking to a tabloid, Sohail said, “Aditya Chopra`s film (directed by Kabir Khan) will have a small shooting spell in July. After that, there will be a long stretch from September onwards. That`s when I start my shooting with Bhai (Salman) for my own film. Adi and I have sat together and worked out the collective schedules of the two films so that there`s no clash of dates.”
Sohail is full of praise for Aditya. He said, “He`s a really cool guy. So organised, it`s a pleasure working with him. Not for a moment was there a clash of interest between my film and his. Bhai is working with Yashraj for the first time. And both the families (the Khans and Chopras) are equally enthusiastic about it.”
Kid brother of Salman also believes that his elder brother has finally started taking up the right kind of projects. “It`s only now that Bhai is working with all the right banners. It doesn`t matter whether the film is produced by Arbaaz, me or Yashraj. Bhai will only do the work if he likes the script. He has a fantastic script sense.”
Hmmm…now that Sohail is acting as a bridge between Salman and Aditya, the Yash Raj scion need no longer depend on Katrina to communicate with Salman.
