The flash-decision to fly in Salman to Toronto was apparently taken in a move to upstage a film fest there that starts in September.
The Jean-Francois Pouliet directorial was going to premiere at the film festival but with a clutter of Hindi films being lined up for screening this year, the film’s male lead, Toronto based actor Vinay, and his entrepreneur dad Ajay Virmani have reportedly decided against screening it at the festival.
“Instead, they have decided to steal the Indian thunder at the Toronto International Film Festival by inviting Salman, the offical producer of the film,” says a source.
While details of Salman’s activities in Toronto are being kept a secret, sources have said that he would spend an extensive part of his time interacting with Indian cab drivers in Toronto as the film is about a cabbie. ” The film is about the adventures of a young taxi driver in Canada who moonlights as a doctor. Local cabbies whould be sharing their experiences with Salman. It’s going to be three days of non-stop dhamaal with Salman and his Canadian fans,” says a source.
