Producer Ramesh Taurani has signed up Salman Khan for a film which will be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. In fact, Taurani has signed Salman for the remake of Amar Akbar Anthony and that project has been dropped. A new script is now being written for this venture which will commence sometime in the first half of next year.
After the super success of Dabangg, producer Taurani is said to be keen on encashing the new popularity of Salman Khan. The actor is now busy with the Hindi remake of the Telugu film Ready. Plans are afoot for making Dabangg 2 also.
