Salman Khan is among those actors who has found success in varied genres ranging from comedy to drama, action to romance. And now, he is all set to feature in the first biopic of his acting career spanning over 32 years. The actor is gearing up to portray the role of the flamboyant Indian spy, Ravindra Kaushik, popularly known as Black Tiger, in director Rajkumar Gupta’s next film.

It’s an action thriller, based on an incredible true story from the Indian History and will go on floors once Salman wraps up his commitment for Sajid Nadiadwala. “It’s a film based on the life of Indian spy, Ravindra Kaushik. He is famously known as Black Tiger and is regarded as India’s best spy ever. Rajkumar Gupta has been researching on his life for last 5 years and he has finally managed to lock a screenplay that does justice to the achievements and legacy of Ravindra Kaushik. He narrated this to Salman, who has already agreed in principle to do the film. It's among the most heroic and shocking stories from the Indian Intelligence history,” revealed a source close to the development, adding further that, Salman has an inherent presence that reflects of flamboyance that's needed for the character.

“It’s more of a dramatic thriller, with some dose of action in the narrative, and this is the first time that Salman will slip into the shoes of a real-life character. Contrary to the general belief, the film won’t be titled Black Tiger and the makers are on the look out for a new name. It’s set in the era of 70s and 80s, and apart from researching on the life of Ravindra Kaushik, Gupta and his team have also done extensive research to recreate that era,” the source added. Interestingly, back in 2012, the Kabir Khan directorial, Ek Tha Tiger with Salman, was rumoured to be based on Ravindra Kaushik's life, however, it eventually turned out to be a fictional tale of an Indian spy. But it seems, life has now come a full circle.

Rajkumar Gupta is known for films like Aamir, No One Killed Jessica, Ghanchakkar and Raid. The upcoming film is said to be his pet project and there are plans to mount it on a big scale. Salman on the other hand will soon start shooting for Tiger 3 with Katrina Kaif and then move on to Sajid Nadiadwala’s film, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali by end of this year. He is also in conversations to bring the Tamil Hit, Master, in Hindi, however, that’s only if the script is reworked and readapted as per sensibilities of Hindi speaking audience. Stay tuned to know more.

Now in salmons case hero remains same, story remains same, actions remain same, items show the same moves, heroines get changed. How long one can stand this granddad singing 16 years wala songs. Let him go
