Actors Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan have reportedly cancelled their upcoming international tours. The step came following the outbreak of coronavirus across the world. According to a report in Mumbai Mirrror, Hrithik was scheduled to meet and interact with his American fans in cities like Chicago, New Jersey, Dallas, San Jose, Washington and Atlanta. It was to be a nine-day tour beginning April 10. A source told the publication: ''Hrithik and the organisers will figure out new dates once the global health scenario is stable. The tour stands postponed as of now.''
Salman, on the other hand, was scheduled to visit the US and Canada but his tour has also been put on hold. He was supposed to perform in Atlanta, New Jersey, Detroit, Boston, Toronto, Dallas, Houston, San Jose and Seattle from April 3 and April 12. Salman's team told Mumbai Mirror, ''It is not advisable to travel right now. We will announce fresh dates once the scare subsides.''
On the work front, Hrithik had two successful films in 2019 - Super 30 and War. While the first film was based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, who took it upon himself to train underprivileged children for the elite IITs, the latter was an out-and-out commercial entertainer which sees Hrithik and Tiger Shroff as commandos, but pitted against each other. The film also starred Vaani Kapoor in a lead role.
Salman was last seen in Dabangg 3 alongside Sonakshi Sinha. He will be next seen in Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. To be directed by Dabangg 3 director Prabhudeva, the film will see Disha as its main female lead. Salman and Disha were to travel to Baku in Azerbaijan for the film’s shoot, however it has now been cancelled following the dangerous spread of coronavirus, according to a report in Mid Day. A song and an action sequence were to be shot there.
This is the second time Salman will be working with Disha after their hit film, Bharat. Speaking about her role in the film, Disha had told PTI, ''Salman sir just asked me if I would like to do the film. I said yes. There is a reason why I chose to do the film, besides the fact that it had Salman sir and it was directed by Prabhu Deeva sir. It has to do with the story and my character.''
Radhe will also star Randeep Hooda, Jackie Shroff and actor Govind Namdev. Salman was also supposed to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in a film titled Inshallah, which later got called off over creative differences between the two. The film was to star Alia Bhatt as its lead heroine.
