Details about Salman Khan’s upcoming gangster drama
We all know that Salman Khan has already played a cop in a couple of movies like Dabangg. Speaking about Salman’s character, a source told Bollywood Hungama, “The cop being Sikh is the sole reason for Salman to do Antim, as he hasn’t done a character like this before. He is beefing up, increasing his beard as he will be seen playing a tough, intense and real Sikh cop, and wear the turban too”.
Source further added that Salman Khan this time will be playing a cop character which is more real unlike his other cop roles which are more commercial and heroic.
Speaking about Aayush Sharma’s character, the source further added, “It’s more like Salman’s version of a Sikh Cop and A Marathi Gangster minus the abuses and vulgar scenes of Sacred Games. He is attempting to make an intense gangster film this time around and trying to play a rather mature character that blends well with his age. However, his cop is more of a supporting character as the entire story revolves around brother in law, Aayush Sharma’s gangster.”
