Readers may recall that recently it was reported that Salman Khan and Karan Johar are reuniting for director Vishnuvardhan's next film, 25 years after their blockbuster hit Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. While there have been media reports that Trisha, Samantha, and Anushka Shetty are in talks to join the cast, it is learnt that Karan Johar and Vishnuvardhan are yet to cast any actors for the film. According to sources close to the development, Vishnuvardhan will dive into the casting of Salman Khan's next film in the first week of October. "Salman is committed to getting in the shape to play a paramilitary officer. He is hitting the gym daily and following a strict diet," the source added. "The script, screenplay, and dialogue draft are locked. The team is targeting to start the film with a brief schedule in the first half of December and then reunite to shoot in January," the source informed that Salman has already started his prep work for the film.
