The Great Khali in Bollywood?

Having won the body building title of Mr India in 1997 & 98 and also a champion of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), The Great Khali just might make his debut in Bollywood with Sahil Khan's Rama - The Saviour which also stars Tanushree Dutta.

Khali is a very popular wrestler in the U.S. and has fought opposite wrestlers like The Undertaker .

Sahil Khan says, "Yes we have approached his agent with the offer and Khali seems really interested. Things are working out and hopefully we will cut the deal with him."

Sahil Khan had seen Khali (whose real name is Dalip Singh) in his Hollywood film The Longest Yard alongside Adam Sandler.

"I saw Khali in the film and liked him. I wanted a larger than life character for a role in my film and he aptly suited the role. I am also proud of the fact that Khali is an Indian", says Sahil.

Speaking on Khali's role in the film, Sahil Khan says, "He will have a full fledged role in the film and he stars alongside me and Tanushree Dutta. I am a fan of Khali and I am looking forward to work with this massively popular wrestler."
