Salman Khan once offered Shashi Tharoor role of foreign minister; here's what happened next
Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor once revealed that he'd received an offer to play the foreign minister in a Salman Khan-starrer, but he turned it down. Here's why.
Bollywood star Salman Khan is currently in Russia, shooting for the third instalment in the Tiger franchise, along with Katrina Kaif. Maneesh Sharma directs the film. Salman is accompanied by his nephew Nirvan Khan.
A few years ago, in an interview, Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor revealed that he'd been offered to play the foreign minister in a Salman Khan film, but decided to say no to Khan.
Without revealing the film's name and the director, the minister said that he will always cherish these moments.
Tharoor told that his friend advised him, ‘If you want to be the foreign minister, don’t play the foreign minister.’ Tharoor further added that it made sense to him, and so he backed out.
Tharoor once met Salman on a flight and took a selfie with the actor. He also post it on social media. "With SalmanKhan on Jaipur- Ahmedabad flight. .. taking off four and a half hours late."
Salman is currently in Russia, and then he will head to Turkey and Austria to film Tiger 3. Apart from Tiger 3 Salman has Kick 2, Bhaijaan and Antim in his kitty. He also has cameos in Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathan.
