Salman Khan is all set to play a superhero in brother Sohail Khan's film Sher Khan. Salman will essay the role of a Pathan with shoulder length hair and super powers.
Writer Rumi Jaffery told a leading daily that Salman Khan's role would be completely different from Ra. One and Krrish, He said, "Needless to say, this superhero will be quite different from Superman, Spider Man or the indigenous Krrish or G.One.
Rumi Jaffery further added, "He will be a hero that kids can identify with. The action scenes won't have him beating up a dozen goons single-handedly. He has done these things many times before."
The leading lady opposite Salman Khan has not been finalised yet, but according to rumours the makers are looking for a new face. The shooting of Sher Khan will start in October.
