The actor, whose last release Dabangg 3, performed moderately at the box office, will next be seen in Prabhu Deva's Radhe. The film will hit the theatres on Eid this year, along with Akshay Kumar's Laxmmi Bomb. The two superstars have shared screen space in films such as Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Jaan-E-Mann.
Speaking about locking horns with Akshay on Eid, Salman had said, “We will be coming back together on Eid next year, and I hope his film does well or better than us. I wish them all the best. Every film should do well."
The actor also has a slew of other releases lined up. In December last year, Salman confirmed the fourth instalment of the Dabangg franchise has been "written."
Elaborating on the status of Sohail Khan's Sher Khan, Salman said the movie will only go on floors after two to three more films. He adds the film will require a significant amount of VFX, and can take up to a year in post-production.
Salman also confirmed he has been approached by actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar with a script. While the actor remained tight-lipped about signing the movie, he dubbed Farhan and his sister-filmmaker Zoya Akhtar his "younger siblings."
