Salman Khan to appear in Marathi film
Salman Khan will make a special appearance in Riteish Deshmukh’s second Marathi production venture Lai Bhaari.
Lai Bhaari is being directed by Nishikant Kamat and is being co-produced under Deshmukh’s Mumbai Film Company and Cinemantra Entertainment.
“It was extremely gracious of Salman to himself offer to be part of our film Lai Bhaari. It was great to do a Marathi scene with him,” Deshmukh said in a statement.
Deshmukh and Khan have known each other for many years. Both were shooting in Hyderabad at Ramoji Film City for their respective projects — Khan for Mental and Deshmukh for Lai Bhaari. After the shoot, they would sit together and chat, said a source.
The source added that Khan was very intrigued by Deshmukh’s approach to his production venture and enjoyed hearing about the film and the story. He then came forward and suggested being part of Deshmukh’s production venture.
Deshmukh was overjoyed with the idea and spoke to Kamat and created a special sequence for Khan which will be one of the highlights of Lai Bhaari.
After a successful stint as an actor, Deshmukh turned producer with Marathi film Balak Palak, which did well at the box office.
