After nearly three years of dilly dallying Salman Khan has turned down two of producer Boney Kapoor’s projects – sequels to the successful films Wanted and No Entry.
Strained relations with Boney’s son Arjun are reportedly to blame for his decision.
Sordid rumours regarding a relationship between Arjun and Salman’s former sister-in-law Malaika Arora have been doing the rounds for a while now. And though Salman has tried to ignore even the reports brought to him by friends, he seems to have finally reached his breaking point.
“Salman cannot ignore anyone who tries to break up his family. Arjun definitely poses a hurdle in his otherwise warm relationship with Boney Kapoor,” says a friend of Salman’s.
It’s being pointed out that Wanted was the film that gave Salman some much-needed success after a series of duds delivered between 2005 and 2007. But friends of the superstar are quick to point out, “It was Salman’s extended guest appearance in No Entry that brought Boney’s production house out of the red, so the two are quits. No one does anyone favours in this business.”
