Salman Khan on Wednesday said there is no link between his upcoming film Radhe: Your Most wanted Bhai and the 2009 action blockbuster Wanted. The 53-year-old superstar had last week announced that Radhe will be his Eid 2020 release.
Salman had shared a one minute motion poster with the first half showing him as cop Chulbul Pandey from Dabangg 3 and the other half gave a glimpse at him in and as Radhe. The new film's announcement led to speculation that it might be a follow-up film to Wanted, in which his character's name was Radhe. Incidentally, Wanted was directed by Prabhu Deva, who is also set to helm Radhe.
Salman, however, put a stop to all the rumours at the trailer launch of Dabanng 3. "The name was actually in Tere Naam and then we used it in 'Wanted'. It is a completely different film. It has nothing to do with Wanted. It is rather bigger than Wanted," the actor said.
Aap he ne poocha tha 'Dabangg 3' ke baad kya? What and when? Yeh lo answer #EidRadheKi https://t.co/mKp4gYsoUz@arbaazSkhan @SohailKhan @sonakshisinha @saieemmanjrekar @PDdancing @KicchaSudeep @atulreellife @nikhil_dwivedi @SKFilmsOfficial @saffronbrdmedia @ReelLifeProdn— Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) October 18, 2019
"If we would have announced 'Radhe' on its own, then it would have gone 'Radhe ..Radhe'. So we announced in a way that 'Dabangg' comes first then it ends with 'Radhe'," he added.
Radhe will be produced by Salman's brother Sohail Khan and Reel Life Production Pvt. Limited under the banner of Salman Khan Films.
Talking about his Christmas release Dabangg 3, Salman Khan said, "We have really worked very hard on this film, we have worked ten times harder than 'Tiger' (series) and other films. From story to production to the direction to action to songs to the whole creative journey, this time a lot of work has gone into making this Dabangg."
