The movie will be a biopic on Salem and the film will be produced by Kamaal R Khan, popularly known as KRK.
A source close to the development said, “He received the script a few days ago, and read it in one go itself. He’s loved the way Salem’s character has been etched and is likely to give a nod to the film.”
KRK, confirmed the news and said, “It’s too early to comment, I haven’t signed Vivek yet, but I’ve sent him the script to which he replied saying he’s liked it very much. I hope things fall into place.”
When asked him that who will be directing the flick, he said, “I’ve spoken to Sudhir Mishra and he’s likely to respond in a week’s time. By the end of the month, we will make an official announcement.”
