Salman Khan, who is currently shooting for Kabir Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ in Manali, has finally locked his next production venture – a hard-hitting film on male striptease artistes. It’s going to be a rags-to-riches story on the life of Somen Banerjee, a Bengali immigrant, entrepreneur and founder of Chippendales (a famous night spot best known for its male striptease performances and dancers who were a rage in the US back in 70s and 80s.)
Speaking to a popular daily, Salman himself confirmed the news saying, “A Bengali man who moved from India to America in the late 60s, struggled and created one of America’s most iconic brands. We are going to tell the story of Somen Banerjee, a man driven by fierce ambition on celluloid.”
Amar Butala, from Salman’s production team says, “The story of Somen Banerjee has all the shades of a gangster film – raw greed, power and violence. We are currently working on the script and the plan is twofold – to produce a feature film and to develop it as a mini-series as well.”
After the Manali schedule of ‘Tubelight’, Salman will start shooting for his popular show ‘Bigg Boss’, which will now enter its tenth season. Salman has been hosting the show since 2010.
