MUMBAI, MH – As Bollywood fever hits the mainstream U.S. media, an unsurprising duo has connected for their next big project.
Bollywood actor, Salman Khan, and hip-hop artist, Chris Brown, recently confirmed rumors on their plans to remake 1989 Bollywood classic Maine Pyar Kiya. In lieu of both the men having domestic violence* records, the new project will be titled Maine Pyar Aur Punch Kiya, which translates to ‘I loved and I punched’.
Salman Khan is currently among Bollywood’s top 3 highest paid actors despite crimes which include domestic violence allegations made by former Miss World Aishwarya Rai, killing a homeless man in a hit-and-run in 2005, and evading jail for poaching an endangered species of deer in 1998.
His partnership with Chris Brown comes with no surprise — Brown who has been charged with domestic violence against mega-star Rihanna, punching a woman in the face at a Las Vegas concert, and an additional laundry list of punching bags that we honestly don’t have the patience to type out.
When asked about their upcoming project, Khan says, “This is truly a match in terms of creative energy. Chris brings a great masculine energy to Bollywood sets that we don’t have enough of.”
FCN asked Brown if there will be a female lead in this film, to which he responded, “Definitely, all the music video bitches I got are gonna play the role of ‘pedestrian’. It was Salman’s idea and I love it. Perfect for all his shirtless scenes and making sure the focus stays on our fists.”
