Actor turned filmmaker Atul Agnihotri possibly does not believe in the concept of favouritism, when it comes to his films. Atul's Dil Ne Jise Apna Kaha, Hello and Bodyguard, had his brother-in-law Salman Khan as the male lead in all the three.
Surprisingly, Atul's next project would not have Salman in it. Talking to a leading daily, Atul confirmed that his upcoming film wouldn't have Salman in it. "It (film) is without Salman Khan. We do not have any appearance or anything of such sort, where Salman would be there. Salman is our lucky mascot. He supports all of us. He is always there for the family," Atul told PTI.
He further informed that though the script, director and locations have been finalised, the cast is still on hold. The shooting for this project will begin in October-November and the film is likely to release in 2013.
