Salman Khan set to revive 'Tere Naam' magic

The actor's next with brother Sohail is a project named after Radhe, his famous long-haired avatar in the 2003 blockbuster Tere Naam

Satish Kaushik's 2003 film Tere Naam had brought critical acclaim to Salman Khan. Breaking out of the lover boy image, the actor had essayed the role of a bad boy who loses his mind over unrequited love, with elan.

And now, TOI has learnt that Salman is ready to revive the famous character of Radhe - the character that had even made a hairstyle famous. Albeit as a namesake, Radhe will come back soon as Sohail Khan's next directorial venture.

After Sohail's superhero project Sher Khan hit a roadblock, Salman green flagged another film that will go on floors next year. And it was the actor, who in a recent interaction with TOI, confirmed that it would be Radhe.

"I am doing Sohail's film Radhe and that will happen before Sher Khan," he told us and before we got excited, added as a disclaimer, "But, this is just a working title for now."

According to a source Sohail never goes ahead with a project unless his big brother Salman approves of it. "He discussed the subject of Radhe with Salman. After prolonged interactions and several meetings, they agreed on the subject and decided to go on floors with it before Sher Khan," said the source.

However, plans of revisiting the famous character are still in the nascent stage. "Details are being worked out even as we speak. It would be interesting to see if Salman will grow his hair and reprise the famous role again," the source told us.

Incidentally, Sohail has just returned to the city after organising one of the biggest Bollywood shows in Dubai with Salman and Priyanka Chopra.
