New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) Bollywood star Salman Khan returns to the

marquee after a long gap with K.S. Adhiyaman's "Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya

Yaar" that releases Friday.

The last time he was on screen was in the dud "Saawan - The Season

of Love". And Salman obviously doesn't have any high hopes from this

film either. "If you ask me, the film's future is very bleak," he told

reporters.

His argument is that the makers have unnecessarily delayed the

release of the film that has been ready for more than a year, which

would have a negative impact on its box office performance.

The premise of the film is simple - it is a family drama

interspersed with romance, humour and emotions.

It revolves around Ayaan (Salman Khan), a young man from an upper

middle class family who falls in love with a beautiful model Ahana

(Shilpa Shetty) who belongs to an ultra rich family.

Eventually, they get married. They are looking forward to a blissful

and happily married life, but troubles soon crop up when Ahana

discovers the vast cultural difference between her upbringing and

Ayaan's. Small differences eventually lead to major confrontation

between the two.

The film also stars Reema Lagoo, Shakti Kapoor, Mohnish Behl and

Asif Sheikh. The music is by Sajid-Wajid.

Though "Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar" has been stalled, its south

remake was made and released in a jiffy and has done a major

business.

To make things worse, the Salman starrer has tough competition at

the ticket window with Arshad Warsi and Sanjay Dutt's "Anthony Kaun

Hai" releasing the same day.
