Salman Khan not Ready to be College Boy

Salman Khan -
Bollywood Rock Star Salman Khan’s next film Ready is not quite ready to take off until the hero is comfortable with his character. For now, the film is through drastic screenplay alteration.

The Hindi remake of the 2008 Telugu Movie Ready which was directed by Srinu Vytla had the hero (Ram) playing a college student on a defiant rampage. but, 44-year-old Salman Khan would have none of that - he asked director Anees Bazmee to make changes to suit his age and image.

With shooting scheduled to start from June 15, Anees, who was busy shooting Thank You, had very little time to accommodate Salman Khan’s demands. But Salman Khan had made it clear he wouldn’t shoot until the changes were made.

In fact, Salman Khan’s embarrassment about not playing his age has been growing over the years. In Tere Naam, the remake of the Tamil blockbuster Sethu, Salman Khan’s role of a college student had to be justified by showing that he was an old student hanging out on the campus just to be with his friends (quite like Aamir Khan in Rang De Basanti ). But now Salman would rather play a character nearer his own age.

Anees Bazmee admitted he had to rewrite the original Telugu film. “We’ve changed the Hindi version of Ready drastically, and for the better. The hero in the Telugu film was 19 and a college student. Salman wasn’t comfortable playing that young a character. He will now play a guy who manages his father’s business. Salman Khan can’t play a college student any longer and he’s sensible enough to admit it.”
