Salman Khan is likely to feature in the Hindi remake of another Telugu hit movie, according to reports. Film-maker Sajid Nadiadwala has reportedly bought the Bollywood remake rights of the Telugu movie "Kshanam," and is willing to cast Salman as its lead.

"Kshanam" is a suspense thriller starring Adivi Sesh and Adah Sharma, and was released in February this year. The film received positive response from critics and has been having a good run at the box office.

According to SKJ Bollywood News, Sajid and the makers of the film have been negotiating the remake rights of "Kshanam". Sajid had earlier remade Ravi Teja-starrer "Kick" with Salman, Jacqueline Fernandez and Randeep Hooda. "Kick" turned out to be one of the biggest Bollywood blockbusters of all time.

Originally directed by Ravikanth Perepu, "Kshanam" revolves around the characters of NRI Rishi (Adivi) and his former girlfriend Swetha (Adah). Rishi resides in the US, but returns to India after he gets a call from Swetha. The two meet and Swetha tells Rishi her daughter Riya has been kidnapped, and asks him to help her find the girl. Several mysteries unfold as the story progresses.

Meanwhile, Salman has been busy these days shooting for his upcoming movie "Sultan". Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, "Sultan" will present the superstar as a wrestler from Haryana. The film features Anushka Sharma as another wrestler. Produced by Yash Raj Films, "Sultan" is one of the most-awaited flicks of 2016 and is slated to be released this Eid.
