Shahid Kapoor starrer 'Haider' has two Salmans?

New Delhi: Ace filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj's upcoming film 'Haider' will not just have one but two Salman Khans. Yes you heard it right, the Shahid Kapoor-starrer film will reportedly see two characters dressed-up just like Sallu bhai did in his 90s superhit film 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun'.

According to a report published in a leading daily, the decision to make two characters imitate the superstar was taken by the director to take advantage of Salman's popularity in Kashmir. And since the film is set in the 90s, what better then a 'Prem' act could have been used by the filmmaker.

These two characters are not only sporting clothes and hairstyle like Prem from 'HAHK' but are also named Salman in the film, reports suggest.

Set in the beautiful Kashmir valley 'Haider' is a film based on William Shakespeare's acclaimed work 'Hamlet'. Besides Shahid Kapoor, the film also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Tabu in prominent roles. It is slated to hit the silver screens on October 2, 2014.
