Salman Khan on Bigg Boss 12

Salman Khan was reportedly approached by Rohit Dhawan to play the lead in a superhero film, but the actor refused the offer considering his age.

According to a report in The Asian Age, director Rohit first wanted Hrithik Roshan to play a superhero in his movie, but he rejected the proposal. The director then knocked on the doors of Salman, who also reportedly refused to do it. The reason behind Salman refusing to play a superhero is reportedly his age.

"Salman felt that he was not of the right age to play a superhero. Salman is the youngest of the three Khans but is in his 54th year now and he felt playing a superhero at this age would not augur well for the film's prospects as well. That's the reason why he has chosen a Korean film like Veteran to remake along with his brother in law Atul Agnihotri," the publication quoted a source as saying.

The movie is supposed to be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, who otherwise has good rapport with the superstar.
