There have been many actresses linked to play the lead in the movie SALUTE ever since the confirmation of the movie happened a few months ago. Everyone from Deepika Padukone to Kareena Kapoor Khan to Rani Mukherji to Katrina Kaif have been linked with the role opposite Shah Rukh Khan in the movie. All this while, obviously, the producers and the director have stayed mum neither confirming nor denying any hearsay about the leading lady of the movie. Now we hear that actress Fatima Sana Shaikh who was last seen in THUGS OF HINDOSTAN has been locked opposite SRK in the movie. With the movie apparently supposed to start filming from February onwards the makers would really like to close this loop on the leading lady of the movie and this might just be the correct bit of information finally on the same front. Watch out for a confirmation on this real soon. BuzzBollywood Trade Magazine
