Meanwhile, Salman seems to be in a mood to experiment when it comes to his choice of the leading ladies. Salman is no longer looking for newcomers who are happy sharing screen space with him and fade away after the release of the film. He is now looking at performance-driven actors who hold their own onscreen. Therefore, after Anushka Sharma in Sultan, the grapevine has it that it's Deepika Padukone who will be his leading lady in Kabir Khan's next film, tentatively titled Tube Light.
Deepika, who is yet to sign a Hindi film, will wrap xXx: The Return of Xander Cage schedule by the end of this month. Once the actress is back in Mumbai, sources suggest that Deepika will sign Kabir's film. (Also Read: This is Deepika Padukone's 'Most Favourite Scene' in xXx 3)
Meanwhile, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director asked fans to wait for a formal announcement:
All that is being written about my next with @BeingSalmanKhan is just media conjecture. Wait for our formal announcement— Kabir Khan (@kabirkhankk) April 19, 2016
Incidentally, Salman's character will be called 'tube light' in the film. But by the looks of it, if the two stars do come onboard, they will surely make a 'megawatt' frame.
