Salman Khan has been told to lose weight for his film – the title of which is being speculated as Dancing Dad. The film directed by Remo Fernandes has Salman playing the father of a child and how he dances and saves the day.

“Salman’s body weight and size has not reduced much after he worked in Sultan has been told be very agile and hence he needs to look slimmer and fitter for the character,” says a source from the film.

Salman, however is currently filming Tiger Zinda Hai which needs him to be in the same shape as he has already shot for the film and needs to maintain the same frame for the continuity. The Ali Abbas Zafar film is being shot in Morocco now and will shift once again to the Emirates where Salman will wrap up the film. “He will start losing weight and get into shape for the dance film and that means that he will need some time before he starts shooting for Remo,” adds the source.

Meanwhile Salman has also asked the help of old friend Aamir Khan to try and suggest him ways of quickly losing weight which the latter had done for the flashback portions of Dangal and we are told that Aamir has already given him a checklist.
