According to reports, Salman Khan is all set to play the character of Sikh cop in Mahesh Manjrekar‘s directorial, Antim: The Final Truth. The gangster drama will also see Aayush Sharma portraying a Marathi Gangster. According to the latest report in Bollywood Hungama, the filmmaker’s next is going to be larger than life film. It is the official remake of the Marathi hit, Mulshi Pattern.
The publication quoted the source as saying— “The cop being Sikh is the sole reason for Salman to do Antim, as he hasn’t done a character like this before. He is beefing up, increasing his beard as he will be seen playing a tough, intense and real Sikh cop, and wear the turban too. There are larger than life elements in the script, but this cop has his own swag, and style of functioning. It’s more like how a cop would be in real life, unlike his other cops which are more commercial and heroic.”
Talking about Aayush Sharma’s character, the source revealed— “It’s more like Salman’s version of a Sikh Cop and A Marathi Gangster minus the abuses and vulgar scenes of Sacred Games. He is attempting to make an intense gangster film this time around and trying to play a rather mature character that blends well with his age. However, his cop is more of a supporting character as the entire story revolves around brother in law, Aayush Sharma’s gangster.”
