Salman Khan, who is currently shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai with Katrina Kaif in Abu Dhabi was also simultaneously prepping up for Remo D’souza’s dance film that he signed sometime back. It was being said that the superstar will immediately start shooting for Remo’s film, which is apparently titled Dancing Dad. So it was quite surprising when Deccan Chronicle recently reported that Salman has put the film on hold as of now. According to the daily, he doesn’t think the character suits him. In fact, he has almost walked out of the project, and has suggested Varun Dhawan’s name for the role.Also Read - Antim: Salman Khan Requests Fans Not to Burn Crackers in Theatre, Shares Shocking Video

“Salman was not happy with the idea of playing a dad, who must learn dancing to please his young daughter. He feels that the role doesn’t suit his age. Salman has already burnt his fingers with trying to play a character much younger than his actual age in Tubelight. Every effort was made to convince Salman. But he remained unsure of looking credible as a dancing dad. He felt the role was more suited to Varun Dhawan, or one of the other younger heroes,” a source close the project was quoted by the daily.

Now, since there is no official confirmation from Salman on this, one can’t confirm that he has walked out of the project. Similarly, if Varun has replaced Salman is also not known. But if at all he does, this won’t be the first time when Varun will come to Salman’s rescue.

If you will remember, Salman was to star in Karan Johar’s ambitious project, Shuddhi, but then Salman walked out of that film too, and it was announced that Varun and Alia Bhatt are doing the film. Of course, the film hasn’t started rolling, and we don’t know if it all it will considering this one has witnessed a LOT of changes in its casting.

Guess, we will have to wait for an official announcement from Salman, Remo or Varun to know what’s really happening with Dancing Dad.
