It is known that Salman Khan and Dharmendra share a special bond and comradry where none gets tired in the praise of the other. Reports claim Salman Khan shall extend his respect for Dharmendra onscreen by featuring in a special song with Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol in ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 3’. The song will be a peppy track that will see Khan with the trio and is likely to be used during the credit roll.
A source close to the Deols told a leading daily, “Salman is very close to Dharmendra and he meets him often. The minute they pitched the idea of having Salman on board for the film, he happily agreed to be part of a special song.’’
A source close to Salman Khan told a leading daily, ‘’Salman is currently in Bangkok shooting for Race 3, which will be followed by the Abu Dhabi schedule in March. He also has the Dabangg tour in Nepal lined up for next month. He will probably take out a few days for the song’s shoot before he starts the prep work for Bharat.’’
The first installment of the ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’ series was a hit. The sequel released in 2013 and it did a decent performance at the box-office. Recently, Salman had visited Dharmendra at his farmhouse. The 82-year-old actor had shared the picture saying, “Deeply touched by your surprise visit to the farm today… you will always be a son to me @beingsalmankhan.”
In one of the interviews, Dharmendra had said, “Salman reminds me of myself. I was almost like him in my early days. I like his attitude and the way he leads his life. He has a great body too.”
The veteran actor has earlier expressed that Salman should star in his biopic as he finds many similarities between them. “I think he (Salman) can do it (biopic). Salman is a darling… He has some habits like me. You all know Salman and his habits well. He has gone on me,” the actor had said.
Yamla Pagla Deewana 3 features Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Kriti Kharbanda.
