In 'Sher Khan', Salman won’t be flying in the air in elaborate costumes. So how will he be different? Find out

The latest to join the superhero wagon is none other than macho man Salman Khan. The actor is all set to don the avatar in his upcoming project Sher Khan to be directed by broher  Sohail Khan.

Unlike other flying heroes with capes and costumes, Salman will not be jumping from one building to the other or weaving a web of tangles for his adversaries. Since, this is his first film for children, Salman didn’t want to unrealistic dare-devil stunts. Says a source, “Salman is very particular about his image and the message his films send out. Since this is for the younger audience, he was very particular about the fact that it should include any stunts which would be unrealistic and hazardous to children.”

Infact, all his stunts in the film will be inspired by the ancient marital forms from Kerala and he will start practicing for it in September. His superhero look will also be completely different from his contemporaries and will see him speaking pashtun, a dialect spoken by the pathans. Not only will that he also have lock locks a la Pran in Zanjeer. Thankfully, the makers have steered clear of gender-mixing while speaking in Pashtun. “Salman has a huge following among kids though he has never done a children’s film. So this time, he is going to pull out all stops to enthrall his young audience,” adds the source.
