According reports Salman Khan has long been aspiring to work with director Anand L Rai, who has to his credits hit movies like TANU WEDS MANU and RAANJHANAA. In an interview Anand L Rai has confessed that he has a love story with a difference set in a rural backdrop however if things go as per plans it will be a mega project.
It will be interesting to see Salman Khan who is known for his DABANGG action style in a role of a drawf.
Unlike Singeetham Srinivasa Rao who directed APOORVA SAGODHARARGAL using his imaginations at the little resources available to him, director Anand L Rai will be using latest commuter technology to give special effects. According to sources VFX expert George Murphy who worked on Matrix Reloaded, Jurassic Park and Forest Gump, has been roped in for the movie.
Earlier Anupam Kher played the lovable dwarf 'Chachu' in JAAN-E-MAN directed by Shirish Kunder and Hrithik Roshan in one scene of DHOOM 2.
