Salman Khan packs a punch
After Shah Rukh Khan, it is now Salman Khan who has slogged for those six pack abs for one of his many ambitious movies, Veer, produced by Vijay Galani and Eros international. This period musical love story is directed by Anil Sharma and has music by Sajid Wajid.
Our source close to the unit says, “Salman Khan wanted a warrior look for the movie that he has been waiting to make for 15 years. When the movie was finalised, he worked hard on the script. He wanted a distinct look in the movie which is set in the 19th Century. After much deliberation, Salman Khan decided to have long hair and a stunning physique with it. In fact, when he went to London, he followed a strict diet and exercise regime and is now ready with the six pack.”
Alok Mathur, official spokesperson for Salman Khan, says, “Salmanbhai had vowed that he would be back with this look and he has kept his word. He was on a strict diet and completely gave up rice. He was eating boiled chicken and proteins only. He gave up oily and fried stuff. The results are there for everyone to see.
The movie will be completed by April or May next year and will be shot in various parts of India with a major schedule in London.
