Why was the idea of making a film on Gama dropped, we asked him? "This subject required a longer run time," Puneet replied. He will also be scripting the show.

The full cast of the film is yet to be decided but Sohail Khan will be playing the role of Gama Pehalwan. The story is set in Amritsar which was Gama's hometown during the Partition.

As of now Salman Khan is looking forward to his upcoming project Tubelight which is based on Hollywood film Little Boy. The film is a historical drama and is based on the 1962 Sino-India war. Shah Rukh Khan will also be playing a cameo in the film which also features actress Zhu Zhu and Sohail Khan in the lead roles.

Apart from Tubelight, Salman  is also shooting for the second installment of Ek Tha Tiger which also features Katrina Kaif in the lead role. Yesterday director Ali Abbas Zafar shared a picture of a cement factory where they shot a few scenes of the film. "Shooting @TigerZindaHai at the stunning Arkan cement factory thank you authorities for your priceless support, trust me it looks beautiful," he tweeted.

Coming back to Salman Khan’s small screen venture, we sure his fans can’t wait to see what he does as a producer with this wrestling drama.

There will be 52 episodes of 1-hour each, twice a week. Puneet Issar will be aided by his son Siddhant who will function as a co-director. Siddhant has also done a large part of the writing of the TV series. As we all know, Sohail Khan plays the title role.
