"Over the last few weeks, after several script meetings at his Panvel farmhouse during which various adaptations were considered, the team has locked a version which can justify Salman’s presence and he’s back in the picture. Now, his character is very important to the narrative. It will present him in a new avatar, more real, intense and raw, along with his usual herogiri," the source said.
