Veer is going to be Salman Khan’s first period drama and will be produced by producer Vijay Galani. Reportedly, Salman who wanted to help the makers to find a main lead opposite him sent a girl for an audition to Anil Sharma.
Apparently Anil Sharma misbehaved with the girl and after knowing the casting couch incident it is believed that Sohail will don the director’s hat.
After the casting couch controversy it is believed that director Anil Sharma will be replaced by Sohail Khan. Reportedly Salman is upset on Sharma who is claiming to be innocent in this whole episode. It is learned that Salman now wants his young brother to direct Veer which has been written by him.
When contacted, Sohail’s manager Vikas Kapoor denied the news, calling it a rumor. He reveals “Anil Sharma is very much part of the project as a director. There’s absolutely no problem between Salman and Anil. When two big people come together to work on a huge project controversies are bound to happen. They are on the hunt for a female lead and once that is finalized the film will go on the floors in the next few months.”
