Salman Khan is undoubtedly the king of Hindi remakes of South Indian films. After working in the Hindi remakes of Tamil and Telugu films, the "Sultan" actor is eager to work in the Hindi remake of a Kannada film, according to reports.

Salman is interested in making the Hindi version of Kannada film "Badmaash" staring Dhananjaya and Sanchita Shetty. "Badmaash", which marks the debut of director Akash Srivatsa, is yet to be released in theaters, but Salman is already impressed with the film.

Not only Salman, Randeep Hooda has also shown keen interest in film. Randeep also saw the teaser of "Badmaash" and he liked it. However, Salman and Randeep will take a final decision only after watching the original movie.

"Producer Ravi Kashyap met Salman and showed him the teaser of the film. Salman has shown his interest in remaking the film in Hindi, but nothing has been finalised yet. Talks are still going and he will take the final decision after watching the film," director Akash told International Business Times, India.

"Randeep Hooda has also shown interest in remaking the film, but he will also take the decision after watching the film. 'Badmaash' will release in March first week and in the second or third week of March a special screening will be held for Salman and Randeep. Producer Ravi Kashyap is in touch with the actors and will organise the special screening for them," Akash added.

While Randeep has not worked in too many remakes, Salman has more than five films to his credit, namely "Wanted" (original "Pokiri"), "Bodyguard" (original "Bodyguard"), "Ready" (original "Ready"), "Jai Ho" (original "Stalin") and "Kick" (original "Kick").
