SALMAN KHAN, SAIF ALI KHAN and AKSHAY KUMAR
While Eros International has evinced interest to produce the film with Salman Khan, Studio 18 also wants to make it with Akshay Kumar in the lead. It is also learnt that Madhu Mantena (producer of GHAJINI) is also mulling the remake and is keen on watching the film.
An insider in Eros has claimed that Salman Khan has won the race and Eros will produce the film, 'Since Salman is very busy, the film is expected to go on floors only next year and will be shot entirely in Switzerland,' he says.
Eros Chief Creative Officer Ram Mirchandani says, 'Eros has indeed seen DON SEENU and has found that it has a great potential to be a Hindi blockbuster. We are working to officially buy the rights.'
