Seven years after their blockbuster, Stroke, Salman Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala find themselves on the comedy, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, directed by Farhad Samji. The film stars Pooja Hegde as the lead female role with Aayush Sharma and Zaheer Iqbal in key roles. Bollywood Hungama exclusively learned that Salman, Sajid and Farhad are in discussions to change the title of the film.
“They want to change the title of Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and rename it. They are considering multiple titles and a new one will be locked down very soon, “a business source told Bollywood Hungama.” The real reason for changing the title is to avoid any sort of controversy surrounding the film’s release. Salman and Sajid respect all religions, however, didn’t want anyone to misinterpret their title Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali like something that pokes fun at two festivals. Therefore, the hunt is now on for a new title. “
Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali tells the story of a family that believes in the oneness of God. Apparently, the source of the plot is Salman Khan’s own family. “His father is a Muslim. Her mother is Hindu. Helen Aunty is Catholic. Salman’s family is a living example of community friendship. The plot of the film will be similar. It will depict the ups and downs of a family that celebrates Eid and Diwali with the same fervor. It will be Salman’s homage to the enduring spirit of unity and brotherhood, a counterpoint to the currently stale atmosphere in the country. Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali will bring the cinematic experience back to the days of films like Yash Chopra’s Dharmputra and Dhool Ka Phool. It addresses the issue of Hindu-Muslim friendship, ”the source explains.
The long-awaited film is slated for release around September of this year, once Salman Khan completes his current assignment, Yash Raj Film production, Tiger 3, with Maneesh Sharma as director. In other news, his next film, Radhe: your most wanted bhai, everything is confirmed for an opening of Eid 2021 in cinemas as well as the digital world in pay per view format. The trailer as well as the first song, “Seeti Maar”, has a good audience on YouTube.
Just after Radhe, he will bring the movie Mahesh Manjrekar, Antim: The Final Truth, which features him as a Sikh cop and Aayush as a gangster.
