Coming soon! Sallu the film producer.

IT SEEMS Salman Khan is set to do what Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have perfected over the years. The buzz goes that he now wants to get into film production. He now wants to be an active partner in the family- owned Sohail Khan Productions, which has churned out many flops of late.

It's believed that Salman has also asked his scriptwriter father Salim Khan to provide inputs to help turn the tide in the company's favour.

Reports are rife that Salman's latest business move comes after a tiff with his brother Sohail during the release of Main Aurr Mrs Khanna, which was a disaster at the box office despite releasing during Diwali.

At that time, too, Salman was apparently not very happy with the way the movie was released and its promotional strategies. Sohail's other production, Kissan, also bombed.

So now, Sallu wants to be more involved with the projects and key decisions of the company.

It will be interesting to see if Salman manages to deliver hits as a producer -- as has been done by SRK ( Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om ) and Aamir ( Lagaan and Taare Zameen Par ).

Sources say if Salman takes up the reins, it will be easier to get bigger stars and financiers to work for his firm.

Salman has worked in many of the hits by Sohail Khan Productions such as Partner and Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya.

But Main Aur Mrs Khanna has been a big disappointment for Salman despite the fact that the film starred Kareena Kapoor and was considered a box office winner.

Now, it remains to be seen if Salman's involvement can turn the fortunes of the Khan daan - owned company.
