Salman Khan is gearing up for his first biography in 32 years with Rajkumar Gupta’s next. Salman Khan is one of the few performers who has had success in a variety of genres, including comedy, drama, action, and romance. And now, after a 32-year acting career, he is going to star in the first biopic of his career. In filmmaker Rajkumar Gupta’s next film, the actor is preparing to play Ravindra Kaushik, also known as Black Tiger, a flamboyant Indian spy.
It’s an action thriller based on an unbelievable actual story from Indian history, and it’ll start shooting after Salman finishes his Sajid Nadiadwala commitment.
“It’s a film based on the life of Indian spy, Ravindra Kaushik. He is famously known as Black Tiger and is regarded as India’s best spy ever. Rajkumar Gupta has been researching on his life for last 5 years and he has finally managed to lock a screenplay that does justice to the achievements and legacy of Ravindra Kaushik. He narrated this to Salman, who has already agreed in principle to do the film. It’s among the most heroic and shocking stories from the Indian Intelligence history,” a source close to the development informed Pinkvilla.
The source furthur added, “It’s more of a dramatic thriller, with some dose of action in the narrative, and this is the first time that Salman will slip into the shoes of a real-life character. Contrary to the general belief, the film won’t be titled Black Tiger and the makers are on the look out for a new name. It’s set in the era of 70s and 80s, and apart from researching on the life of Ravindra Kaushik, Gupta and his team have also done extensive research to recreate that era.”
Meanwhile, by the end of the year, Salman Khan will begin filming Tiger 3 alongside Katrina Kaif before moving on to Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. He’s also in talks to remake the Tamil hit Master in Hindi.
