It seems so that after seeing the kind of success Farhan Akhtar has managed with his Rock On songs, Salman Khan wishes to sing his own numbers in his upcoming rocker flick, London Dreams.
Presently shooting in London, Salman Khan is trying his best to convince the makers of London Dreams, that's producer Paramjeet Singh and director Vipul Shah to let him give playback to his song numbers in the film. He feels it will bring authenticity to the rockstar character that he is playing in the film. He had earlier sung one song, in his home production, Hello Brother song, "Chandi Ki Daal Pe Sone Ka Mor". This dahi - handi number is played during the festival every year by the dahi handi organisers for a decade now.
A production source reveals, "The makers won't take the risk of allowing him to sing all his songs but perhaps one song may be given to him."
Farhan's dad Javed Akhtar and Salman's dad Salim Khan were old associates who co-wrote together landmark hits like Sholay, Shakti, Mr. India and many more before they parted ways on a bitter note. They both haven't reconciled their differences for a good two and a half decades now! But very recently, Salim Khan impressed by his old foe's son's all rounder performance in Rock On invited him home and gifted a personal memorabilia. Salman perhaps is expecting the same from Javed Akhtar after he does the same with London Dreams.
London Dreams tells the story of two best friends played by Salman and Ajay Devgan who are upcoming musicians who go from Punjab to London to make it big. How jealousy takes over and spoils their friendship and how the common love of their life (played by Ghajini gal Asin) plays an important role in getting them back together forms the rest of the film.
