Salman Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala are reuniting on the comedy ‘Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali,’ directed by Farhad Samji, seven years after their blockbuster Kick. Pooja Hegde plays the female lead, and Aayush Sharma and Zaheer Iqbal play supporting roles. However, it has come to notice that Salman, Sajid, and Farhad are in talks to alter the film’s title.
Bollywood Hungama learned from their source that, “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,” Adding on, the source mentioned that, “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.”
‘Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali’ is a film about a family who believes in God’s oneness. The plot’s inspiration seems to be Salman Khan’s own kin. “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” says the source.
After Salman Khan finishes his current role, Yash Raj Films’ Tiger 3, directed by Maneesh Sharma, the much-anticipated film is set to begin production in September of this year. In other reports, his upcoming film, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, has been set for an Eid 2021 release in theatres and on pay-per-view in the digital world. The trailer and the first song of the movie Radhe, ‘Seeti Maar’, has had a good outcome on YouTube. After Radhe, he’ll be starring in Antim: The Final Reality, a Mahesh Manjrekar film, as a Sikh cop and Aayush as a gangster.
