Sohail Khan will play the lead as the Great Gama in the TV soap. Mohd Nazim from Saath Nibhaana Saathiya will play Gama's brother Imam Baksh, as reported by Mumbai Mirror.

The same report states that the big budget project is being written and directed by Puneet Issar. The team shot the pilot last year in Patiala and Star Plus loved it. Now, the show’s team is sorting out the actors’ dates and working out the logistics. They plan to shoot it like a film in Punjab on a set in Mumbai and at some stadiums in London.

Born in a village of Punjab, Gama shot to fame after he entered a strongman competition and won it. He has also competed with international wrestlers in European catch wrestling tournaments. Sohail is reportedly training incessantly for his first ever television project. The title of the show is yet to be decided though.

Salman is also in talks to finalise a show that will showcase the lives of Mumbai cops on TV. Salman will be soon coming back on small screen with Dus Ka Dum. It is expected to go on air in June.
