Salman Khan Ropes In Several South Actors For Radhe To Ensure A Pan-India Appeal
After Sudeep's presence helped Dabangg 3 grab eyeballs in south market, Salman Khan ropes in several Tamil actors for Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai
Besides showing the genesis of Bollywood's favourite cop Chulbul Pandey, Dabangg 3 (2019) was highly anticipated as it marked the on-screen union of Salman Khan and Kannada superstar Kichcha Sudeep. Owing to Sudeep's presence, the film had generated tremendous buzz in the south market. For his next, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, Khan has again roped in several south actors and technicians, thus ensuring that the cop drama has pan-India appeal.
Before the film went on floors last year, it is heard that Salman Khan and director Prabhudheva were certain about tapping the South audience that has had limited interest in Hindi films so far. "Tamil star Bharath Srinivasan, who has featured in several hit films including Kaadhaal (2004) and Kanden Kadhalai (2009), essays the role of an undercover cop in Radhe and shares crucial scenes with Salman. While Disha Patani plays the superstar's love interest, Megha Akash — who was recently seen in Rajinikanth's Petta (2019) — plays Salman's colleague and has shot several action sequences with him," says a trade source.
