Written by Shubham Dwivedi

Earlier the reports were that Salman Khan will produce a television show based on famous Indian wrestler Gama but the production went out of the news when the progress stopped being mentioned but now the production of the show is back on track. Apparently Salman’s younger brother Sohail will portray the titular role of Gama and production has already wrapped a major chunk of the shoot. Mohammad Nazim of Saath Nibhana Saathiya fame is playing the brother of Gama by the name of Imam Baksh which is the second lead of the show.

There are no reports of Salman being in the show as he has never done a fiction television show but only hosted a few reality ones. Allegedly shoot of the show happened in Patiala for a few months and Star Plus has green lighted after watching the already shot material. No official date of airing has been released as of now though it shall be in a short time. The Great Gama will be Salman’s first TV Production as he has only produced films as of yet. Sohail was also not seen in a film for a while now and his return will be TV.

Salman started his production company with his blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan and will currently be producing his upcoming venture ‘Bharat’ directed by Ali Abbas Zafar which will release on EID 2019. Gama was born as Ghulam Mohammad Baksh in Amritsar under British India in 1878. He became the Indian heavy weight champion on 15 October 1910 and also one of the most celebrated wrestler in the world. There has not been an official motion picture on Gama of any kind in the past and this show will be the first official visual adaptation of the story and who better than Salman to produce it as the budgets will be high considering period setting of the esthetics.
