Director Atlee, known for his blockbuster collaborations with Shah Rukh Khan, is reportedly set to team up with another Bollywood superstar for his next film: Salman Khan.

While initial reports suggested Allu Arjun was in talks for the project, it appears the collaboration fell through due to differences in creative vision and budget concerns. Reports suggest that Atlee's hefty remuneration was a sticking point for Geetha Arts, owned by Allu Arjun's father, Allu Aravind.

However, Atlee quickly pivoted and presented a new idea to Salman Khan, who was reportedly enthusiastic about the project. Now, the filmmaker is finalizing the script and the film is expected to be announced soon under the banner of Sun Pictures.

Shooting is anticipated to begin in 2025, following Salman Khan's completion of "Sikandar," directed by A.R. Murugadoss, which is scheduled for an Eid 2025 release.

The news of Salman Khan's potential involvement has sparked excitement among fans, who are eager to see the unique combination of the action star and the director known for his high-octane thrillers.

Despite the shift in casting, sources close to the project emphasize that the differences between Atlee and Allu Arjun have not affected their professional relationship. While the collaboration was never formally confirmed, the two continue to hold mutual respect for each other.

With the script in its final stages, fans are anxiously awaiting official confirmation of this potential blockbuster collaboration. If it materializes, the Atlee-Salman Khan pairing promises to deliver a unique and entertaining cinematic experience. Atlee is in huge demand ever since he created a sensation with Shah Rukh Khan's Jawan and from then on all the top stars from across the country are showing interest in collaborating with him. Atlee however after talks with Allu Arjun failed is now gunning for Salman Khan and he is already completing a powerful script to elevate Salman stardom to another level.
