Salman Khan it seems is giving preferential treatment to his mega budget Veer over Boney Kapoor’s long in the making Wanted. There are widespread talks in the industry over Salman wanting his written and enacted historical Veer to release before his solo starrer Wanted.
Industry sources reveal, “Boney Kapoor is learnt to be facing tough times from his lead actor of Wanted, Salman Khan and the problem seems to centre on the film Veer, which is written by Salman and is being directed by Anil Sharma. Salman seems to be taking more than a personal interest in Veer and is keen that this period movie be his next release. This is because Salman feels that Veer will break his streak of flops and give his career a fillip that it badly needs. The Jaipur schedule of Veer could not be completed because of the collapse of portions of the Amer Fort where the shooting was taking place. Hence, Veer is a long way from being complete. But that has hardly deterred Salman who is now playing the catch me if you can game with Boney. First he made him run around for dates for shooting and now he is making him run around for dubbing dates. As for Boney, despite having spent tons of money on giving the film a classy look, on par with any international film, has no other option but to wait and hope that Salman cooperates in getting Wanted Dead And Alive released. After all, he would not want this film to have the same fate as his Shahid Kapur Kareena Kapoor starrer Milenge Milenge. Of course, one wishes for Salman’s sake that his move to push Veer ahead of Boney’s film pay off. He is not in exactly the best of places professionally.” -Sampurn Media
