Sohail Khan is known for being a man who wears his heart on his sleeves. As someone who has maintained steady relationships with people within and outside the industry, he may have been much less prolific than brothers Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan but still never known to leave side of his old friends. No wonder, for his JAI HO, it is this very friendship that is being brought to fore again.
YASH TONK TO STAR IN SOHAIL KHAN'S SALMAN KHAN STARRER JAI HO
It is a known fact that Sajid-Wajid, who had also composed for Sohail Khan directed PYAAR KIYA TOH DARNA KYA, have been repeated in JAI HO as well. However, the lesser known fact is that character actor Yash Tonk, who had shot to fame from the world of television (Kaahin Kissii Roz, Kesar) many moons ago, is making a comeback of sorts with the film as well.
Sohail and Yash go back a long way. Way back in 2006, he had played Sohail Khan's buddy in a film called FIGHT CLUB: MEMBERS ONLY. Ever since then, the duo has been seen in TEAM: THE FORCE and MAIN AURR MRS KHANNA. Ironically, each of these three films has been a box office disaster. However, the results have been much more enriching when it comes to their off-screen friendship which has only grown from strength to strength.
"No wonder, even though Yash's last few films have all been with Sohail and he hasn't been active on the television circuit either, the actor is resurfacing with JAI HO," a source confirms, "When casting for the Salman Khan starrer was being put together, Yash found himself as a part of the film too. He has an important part to play in there."
Incidentally, though Yash and Sohail go back a long way, this is the first time ever that the actor would be sharing screen space with Salman in JAI HO. A co-production of Eros International and Sohail Khan Productions, the film releases all over on 24th January.
