Mumbai: Salman Khan has been hired for a special role in Chiranjeevi’s upcoming film, “Godfather.” The Telugu megastar has now revealed why he preferred Salman over Aamir Khan for the cameo in the film.
Of late, Chiranjeevi revealed the Telugu trailer of Aamir’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ in Hyderabad. During the release of the trailer, Aamir talked at length and breadth about his long association with Chiranjeevi. In fact, both stars have met each other a few times over the past couple of decades.
Aamir Khan thanked the Telugu star for accepting his invitation and being a part of the trailer launch. He quickly responded that he would like to revert the favour as he wanted to be part of one of his projects. Following this, Aamir jokingly asked Chiranjeevi why he didn’t contact me for a role in his film Godfather instead of Salman Khan.
Answering in a breath, the South Indian idol revealed that the character didn’t need someone with heart and brain, but needed someone for their physicality, and that’s why they went with Salman. ‘Godfather‘ would be a debut film for Salman Khan in the Telugu film industry. The film also stars Nayanthara and Satyadev Kancharana.
On the other hand, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, stars Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, Naga Chaitanya, and so on. The film is set to hit the silver screens on August 11, 2022.
