Salman Khan is one of the biggest superstars of all time and his every move grabs headlines. During the time of the pandemic, Salman had confirmed in a media interaction that he was in talks with director Rajkumar Gupta for an official biopic of Indian spy Ravindra Kaushik. However, things got worse after that. Now a source close to Salman has told us why Bhaijaan is not doing the film.
The main reason why Salman Khan is not doing Ravindra Kaushik’s biopic Black Tiger
“Salman Khan is previously doing a spy film in the Tiger franchise which is going to be a big bang in the upcoming years. He didn’t want to make another spy film that would lead to comparisons between the two characters.” Interestingly, the great Indian spy, Ravindra Kaushik also had the code name, Tiger, making things even more similar. Hence, after several discussions with his team, he has taken out of Black Tiger,”.

The rights to make the film were with director Rajkumar Gupta. After confirming with Salman about joining the project, Rajkumar Gupta did not renew the rights. They finally lapsed and were acquired by Anurag Basu. The film will now be produced by Anurag Basu, with Salman behind it. There is a brain too,” the source further told us.
What about clashing with Tiger?
Anurag Basu’s observation of Ravindra Kaushik is very different from the Tiger franchise. However, he is still not 100 percent sure about the Star Cast of Black Tiger. He is also likely to approach a younger actor to play the lead. We will have a clear picture of Black Tiger in a month.”
