Most actors are playing superheroes these days. But Salman Khan might just essay the role of the original superhero - Hanuman. It seems Hanuman will take over from Spiderman, Superman, Batman, and of course, the recent G.One.

Reportedly, Salman has been approached to play Hanuman in the modern version of the epic Ramayana that will be set in New York. The story is based on the re-birth of Hanuman.

Initially, Aamir Khan was approached for the role but things did not work out. We assume Aamir has been keeping extremely busy, with his TV show, and upcoming films.

Apparently, Shilpa Shetty and Hollywood star Keanu Reeves will play Ram and Seeta and Gary Oldman will essay the role of Raavan.

If Salman gives his nod for the film, this would definitely be the most unique and different movie done by Sallu.

While he has successfully built his image of an 'action hero' from being the romantic chocolate boy, playing a superhero is something Salman hasn't done till yet.

Salman has also been approached to play Iron Man in the Hindi remake of the film, Avengers.
