A source close to the development said, “Murad and the team of Endemol have had a couple of meetings with Salman Khan over the last 30 days, to discuss Master with him. Salman has liked the concept of the film, and has shown keen interest, however, is waiting for the team of Master to come to him with a bound script in Hindi, as a lot of elements from the Tamil original have to be tweaked to suit the sensibilities of Bollywood audience”.
“Salman’s aura and personality suits best for the role of Master, and that’s exactly what the makers also felt. The discussions are in the very nascent stage, and Salman will take his decision on doing or not doing the film only after hearing the screenplay narration. The team of Master is currently working on the rewriting the script – tweaking the second half of the original, and editing the rather longer portions to keep the runtime in check in Hindi. The next narration with Salman is expected to take place in a couple of months,” the source added.
Twitter started to trend Salman but there was a mix reaction on this news. Bhai's fan imagined him as JD Master but there were a few who do not want Salman to step into Thalapathy Vijay’s shoes. One of the twitter users wrote: “Salman will not be able to act like vijay. If master remake happen than Disaster sure”.
Another one said: “Disaster Hoga Pakka Vijay Jaisa Acting Nahi Kar Payega Bhai”.
Another one tweeted: "What Salman haa liked seriously.Master alone is better than Salman whole career and if he will star this remake than God pls save the original version pls.
