After delivering back to back hits like ‘New York’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, it’s now time for director Kabir Khan to don the producer’s hat.
His banner, Kabir Khan Productions, is all set to back a film starring megastar Amitabh Bachchan. The theme of the film will be similar to that of Kabir’s past movies.
TOI quotes a source as saying, “It is a script that Kabir has for the longest time. He wanted to make it only with Mr Bachchan. Now that he has delivered three back-to-back blockbusters with Salman Khan, two of them produced by Salman Khan and the third by Yash Raj Films, it’s time for Kabir Khan to begin his own production house, which he will do with the Bachchan starrer.
His next directorial venture, ‘Tubelight’, stars Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Om Puri and Zhu Zhu in pivotal roles. It is a war drama set against the backdrop of Indo-Sino war of 1962 and is slated to release on June 25.
