Its common knowledge that the trade and distributors alike are extremely excited about Vipul Shah's SINGH IS KINNG and the film has fetched record prices in almost all the major territories. The reasons are obvious. This is Vipul's fourth film after a hat trick of successes namely, AANKHEN, WAQT- RACE AGAINST TIME and NAMASTEY LONDON. The film is being directed by Anees Baazmee, who has given super-hit movies like NO ENTRY and WELCOME. And to top it all, it once again has Akshay Kumar, who has been the lucky mascot in all of Vipul's films.
However, apart from the trade and distributors there is one person (who is not even remotely connected with the movie) who has shown supreme confidence in the project, even before a single shot of the film had been canned. Can you guess who? Surprise, surprise, it is Salman Khan. Yes, it was Salman who had told Katrina to sign SINGH IS KINNG, as he was positive that the film would turn out to be a hit. This fact was recently revealed by none other than Katrina Kaif herself in her latest interview.
Well, isn't it surprising considering how the media has portrayed the so-called rivalry between Akki and Sallu and kept them at logger-heads by constantly fabricating stories about Akshay and Katrina. Hopefully this news will shut them up for a while!
