After Kick, Salman Khan is reuniting with Sajid Nadiadwala for another flick titled Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. The film will be directed by Farhad Samji amd will go on the floors around September of this year. Apart from Salman Khan, the film will star Pooja Hegde as the female lead with Aayush Sharma and Zaheer Iqbal in key roles.
Now the latest update from the film is that the makers and Salman Khan are in talks about changing the title of the film.
A trade source revealed to a leading portal, “They want to change the title from Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and rename it. They are contemplating on several titles and a new one will be locked very soon. The real reason to change the title is to avoid any sort of controversy around the film’s release. Both Salman and Sajid respect all religions, however, didn’t want anyone to misconstrue their title Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali as something that makes fun of two festivals. Hence, the hunt is now on for a fresh title.”
A source reveals talking about Salman’s family as it is said the plot of the film is inspired by the actor’s family, “His father is Muslim. His mother is Hindu. Helen Aunty is a Catholic. Salman’s family is a living example of communal amity. The film’s plot will be similar. It will portray the ups and downs in a family which celebrates both Eid and Diwali with equal fervour. It will be Salman’s homage to the enduring spirit of oneness and brotherhood, a counterpoint to the currently vitiated atmosphere in the country. Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will take the cinematic experience back to the days of films like Yash Chopra’s Dharmputra and Dhool Ka Phool. It addresses the issue of Hindu-Muslim amity.”
