Salman in 3D?


By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, March 17 -- Ever thought of watching Salman Khan in 3D? You just might get to experience that with the actor's upcoming film, Kick, as director Shirish Kunder intends on using the technology.

"Yes, there is an intention to dabble with 3D in Kick. I will soon be meeting Salman to discuss the possibility of using it. But nothing has been confirmed yet," says Shirish. The film, a remake of a Telugu action romance movie, will have a lot of stylised action sequences. Reportedly, The Transporter (2002) and Rush Hour 3 (2007) stunt man Philippe Guegan will come down to Mumbai in September and personally train Salman for the film. The actor, along with his Dabangg co-star Sonakshi Sinha will start work on Kick around the same time.

For the time being, Shrish is busy with his 3D project, Joker starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha. According to reports, Salman was quite fascinated with the technology and rumours even suggested that he wanted to be a part of the 3D flick. "That's not true. Contrary to reports, Salman isn't doing any cameo in Joker," clarifies Shirish, who directed him and Akshay in his directorial debut venure, Jaan-E-Mann (2006).

Shirish, meanwhile, is happy to have wrapped up shooting a major portion of Joker. "We have just finished the first 90-day schedule in Chandigarh. I'm happy to have completed 40 per cent of the film," says Shirish, who will complete the rest of the shoot over the coming few months. "The plan is to release the film by the year-end," he adds.

Besides Joker, Shirish is also working on a script about dance. "I am very excited about the story I am working on with Mr Amitabh Bachchan in mind. Let me complete the script and then I will approach him with it," says Shirish.
