"Radhe was my character's name in Tere Naam (2003) and again, we used the same name for my character in Wanted (2009). But this (Radhe) is a completely different film. It has nothing to do with Wanted. If you want to go into that format or genre, then this (Radhe) will be a baap of Wanted," said Salman, about his upcoming film, while interacting with the media at the trailer launch of his next release, Dabangg 3.
Salman attended the event with Dabangg 3 co-actors Sonakshi Sinha, Saiee Manjrekar, the film's director Prabhu Deva, and producers Arbaaz Khan, Bhushan Kumar and Nikhil Dwivedi in Mumbai.
Radhe is scheduled to hit the screens on Eid next year. A few days back, Salman Khan took to social media to announce the release date of the film. Sharing the motion poster, he wrote: "Aap he ne poocha tha Dabangg 3 ke baad kya? What and when? Yeh lo answer #EidRadheKi."
On why he announced Radhe with the poster ofDabangg 3, he said: "If we had announced Radhe on its own, then Dabangg 3 would have taken a backseat, and people would have started talking only about Radhe. That's why, we decided to do it in this particular manner."
The motion poster reads: "The story behind Chulbul Pandey.. Dabangg 3. 20th December.. aur hum aapke saath Christmas bhi manaenge aur Eid bhi.. Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai, half good fully mad."
Produced by Sohail Khan, Radhe will mark the third collaboration between Salman and Prabhu Deva. The director helmed Salman's 2009 release Wanted and the upcoming Dabangg 3. There have been reports that Salman's Bharat co-star Disha Patani will be seen sharing screen space with the actor in Radhe, but the news is yet to be confirmed.
