Sultan has triggered off a new love affair in Salman Khan’s life, an enduring one with the state of Uttar Pradesh which promises to be extremely productive and rewarding. Apparently the experience of shooting in Uttar Pradesh has been so rewarding that Salman intends to return to shoot his next film in the State.
Says a source from the core crew of Sultan. “Salman Khan had a ball shooting in and around Muzaffarnagar in UP. He was told it would be tough to control the fans, and it was. But the security bandobast provided by the Akhilesh Yadav government was so tight and fool proof that not one untoward incident happened.”
The source says Salman Khan interacted freely and generously with all his fans. “There were people thronging on location from not just in and around Muzaffarnagar but all across Uttar Pradesh. Salman met them and interacted with them, let them take pictures.”
With this schedule in UP, director Ali Abbas Zafar has nearly completed his entire shooting of Sultan. “There are only 12 days of shooting left. Ali thought the UP schedule would take longer. But it was all smooth sailing, we must say that the state government and district police made it very efficient,” says the source, adding that the Akhilesh government is “very close” to Salman.
“Salman Khan is returning to shoot his next film in Uttar Pradesh,” informs the source.
