A source close to the production, said; “Salman will be playing double role in the film. We have had Dilip Kumar play double role in Ram Aur Shyam, Salman in Judwa, both the characters were positive. There will be difference between the two characters but none of them is negative, both the roles are positive. He will be playing entertaining characters.”
