Says a source, "Salman has wanted to work with Rai for a while now and recently, he gave his nod to the project. Pre-production work on this film will start soon and the film will have Salman playing a dwarf in it. The actor loves experimenting with different looks and characters, which is why he readily agreed to do the project."
While director Anand L Rai was unavailable for comment, another source adds that the dates for the project are yet to be decided. "Salman doesn't have any dates till 2016 and right now, Anand L Rai is working on the sequel of Tanu Weds Manu. But yes, Rai will soon look at working on its pre-production," says this source.
