Mumbai, Jan 11: Actor Gulshan Grover says superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan will be an apt choice for a “Saudagar” sequel, if it is ever planned.

Gulshan spoke about a potential sequel and the actors best suited for it during a re-premiere of “Saudagar” at the New Excelsior Mukta A2 Cinema here, read a statement.

Released in 1991, “Saudagar” revolved around the friendship between Veeru and Rajeshwar, which turns bitter and they become enemies. They choose to confront their enmity only years later when their respective grandchildren fall in love with each other.

Directed by Subhash Ghai, “Saudagar” features legendary actor Dilip Kumar, late veteran Raaj Kumar, Vivek Mushran and Manisha Koirala. Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher, Dalip Tahil, Gulshan Grover, Dina Pathak and Jackie Shroff also star in the film.

“Working with them (Raaj Kumar and Dilip Kumar) was a great opportunity that gave my career a boost. The chemistry they shared was amazing, if there is ever a sequel to be made of ‘Saudagar’, Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan will be perfect for the roles of Raaj Kumar (Rajeshwar) and Dilip Kumar (Veeru) from the movie,” Gulshan said.

“They both share a mysterious and sizzling relationship just like Raaj Kumar and Dilipji,” he added.

Priyank Sharma

Mumbai, Jan 17: Priyank Sharma was questioned about his sexual orientation with contestants throwing homophobic slurs during his stint in reality show “Bigg Boss 11”. The actor says trolls on his sexual orientation and character do affect him.

He added that his “loved ones” are also affected.

“I think having an opinion or criticism is fine, but attacking someone’s character is not acceptable. As a celebrity, I am open to criticism but there is a huge difference between criticism and insult,” Priyank said in a statement.

“Trolls on my sexual orientation and character do affect me. Even if I decide to ignore it my loved ones are affected by it which bothers the most more than the trolls,” he added.

The actor will address the issue through TV show “Troll Police”, which brings celebrities and their trolls face-to-face.

“Through ‘MTV Troll Police’, I would like to convey this to people who troll celebrities under the pretext of giving a point of view that if you wish to have fun by insulting others, then you need to pay for it,” he added.

The show is aired on MTV and the episode will air on Saturday.
