A few months ago, there were reports that Salman Khan is planning to launch a talent management firm. Salman has been instrumental in providing work to a lot of people, be it in his films or recommending them to other stars. Talking about his agency, he told a leading daily, “Hiring new talent is necessary. There are so many people who come to the city and still don’t get a chance to work in films. Sometimes, even if they do land a film, they aren’t noticed enough. The idea is to create a talent pool and give everyone a fair chance to make it big in this world.”
The talent management firm will start looking for a female lead for his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma’s Bollywood debut. A source said, “Salman plans to launch a female lead opposite Aayush for his debut venture, Loveratri. In order to get the work started, he has introduced an audition section on his app, BeingInTouch, where people can send videos showcasing their talents.”
On the work front, Salman was last seen in Tiger Zinda Hai alongside Katrina Kaif. The spy-thriller, which is a sequel to the 2012 blockbuster, Ek Tha Tiger, revolves around Salman as a RAW agent, and Katrina as an ISI (Inter-services Intelligence) agent, and their deadly mission to rescue 25 nurses, who have been held hostage by ISIS, a terrorist organisation.
Fans were glad to see the action avatar of the actor back on the silver screen. In an interview, the Dabangg actor stated that his fans hate when he cries onscreen as he has established himself as an action star. “Whenever my fans watch my movie, they want to have a great time. With Tubelight, they were shocked. They were crying, hurt and disturbed, as they couldn’t digest the fact that someone was beating their Bhai, and that I was crying. So, even though they watched it in theatres, they didn’t go back again. The film lacked the repeat value that Sultan (2016) or Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) had,” said the actor in an interview.
