For a long time, filmmaker Raj Kumar Gupta has been working on a biopic of Indian spy Ravindra Kaushik. The project has gone through multiple rounds of scripting and has been offered to many A-list Bollywood stars since its launch in 2018, but it has yet to see the light of day. Salman Khan agreed to appear in and co-produce the film last year, giving it a new breath on life. He was expected to start shooting for this picture after finishing Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali in the middle of this year, but that doesn’t appear to be happening. Raj Kumar Gupta’s action-thriller film featuring Salman has been officially scrapped, according to reports.

“Raj Kumar Gupta has called off the Black Tiger project. The rights to unfold Ravindra Kaushik’s emotional and remarkable story to the big screen that he had bought five years ago from his family has expired now. And the filmmaker has not renewed it as he still doesn’t see the film happening anytime soon. Salman has also shown his apprehension about playing yet another spy when he already has YRF’s biggest spy franchise, Tiger, in his hands. With no certainty over the film’s future, the director finally decided to let go of the rights back to Kaushik’s family. He doesn’t want to make this film anymore and has now turned his attention to other projects,” a source close to the filmmaker revealed to PeepingMoon.
