Sohail Khan, at Salman Khan’s insistence, has sounded out Tabu and Naseer for his remake of Murugadoss's Stalin

Could Salman's next, Radhe, give his image the kind of makeover he so seems to desire? The Sohail Khan directorial, which is a remake of southern hit, AR Murugadoss's Stalin (2006), will see Khan play a good Samaritan - a far cry from the roles he has been essaying to the hilt of late.

According to a report in TOI: And to give the film a certain gravitas, the actor has reportedly sounded out both Tabu and Naseeruddin Shah to share screen space with him. When contacted, Sohail said, "(The actors) have not confirmed yet." A source close to the film told TOI, "Before leaving for Dubai, Sohail spoke to Tabu and Shah for two important roles in the film."

Elaborating on Sohail's unusual choice, the source said, "It was at Khan’s insistence that Tabu and Shah were contacted. Khan felt that the supremely talented duo could give the film a touch of class. Also, the film sees him as a military officer who sets out to reform society and Sohail, needs cerebral actors."

Initial reports suggest Tabu will play Khan's sister in the film, while it is not clear what Shah will be portraying. Incidentally, Radhe will be the first film with Khan and Shah in it. As for Tabu, this will be Salman's fourth film co-starring the actress. The first three being , Hum Saath Saath Hain, Biwi No 1 and Jeet.

Of course Shah and Tabu are one of the best to watch and admire.I hope they are in their natural form and not glazed over with fluff.
