Salman not replaced in Marigold:

With Salman Khan in the eye of a storm currently, rumours of all sorts are spreading like wild fire. A few days ago there was talk that the actor had been dropped from the Hollywood production MARIGOLD, and that Shah Rukh Khan had bagged the assignment. The news is untrue, Siddharth Jain, Vice-President of Hyperion Pictures, India (who are producing the film), clarified to this writer in an exclusive chat. Expressing surprise at the misreporting in a section of the press, Siddharth says that they have yet to arrive at a decision. We’re waiting. We’ll decide on our next step once a clearer picture emerges. But what about the rumours that Shah Rukh Khan had already been approached? There’s no truth to it. Salman fits the lead role to the T. The director (Willard Carroll) is expected in the last week of October and his (Carroll) decision will be final. After a pause, Siddharth continues, Yes, Carroll is upset with the developments. You do panic under such circumstances. But we have ample time to decide our next step. The film is going on the floors in February/March next year, so we’re in no hurry to arrive at any hasty decision. P.S.: There’s talk in the trade circles that Akshaye Khanna would be considered as the next best choice. But as of now it’s a wait and watch situation!
