Kick superstar Salman Khan will take off for a 3-day tour of Toronto from August 28 to promote Vinay Virmani’s big-ticket film Dr. Cabbie.
The flash decision to fly in Salman to Toronto post Kick was taken in a move to upstage the Toronto Film Festival which starts on September 4.
Dr. Cabbie, directed by Jean-Francois Pouliet was to premier at the Toronto Film festival. But, with a clutter of Hindi films being screened at the Festival this year, the Toronto-based actor Vinay Virmani and his entrepreneur-dad Ajay Virmani have decided against screening Dr. Cabbie at the Festival. Instead, they have decided to steal the Indian thunder at the Toronto Film Festival by inviting Salman Khan, the official producer of Dr. Cabbie to Toronto just days before the film.
While the details of Salman Khan’s activities in Toronto during his 3-day visit are being kept a secret, it is reliably learnt that Salman Khan would spend an extensive part of his time in Toronto interacting with Indian cab drivers in Toronto.
Says a source, “That’s what the film is about. It is about the adventures of a young taxi driver in Canada who moonlights as a doctor.
Local cabbies would be sharing their experiences with Salman. It’s going to be three days of non-stop dhamaal with Salman Khan and his Canadian fans, and a terrific counter-move to steal the Indian thunder from the Toronto Film Festival.”
