Salman, the new Tarzan!

Salman Khan seems to have taken his bare-chested image to the next level. Now, we may have an entire film with the Khan sans his shirt. And maybe trousers as well!
Salman has just signed on a film called Tarzan, set in the jungles. Salman will sport a new look for the film, which will go on the floors next year.
"I was always fascinated by Tarzan stories and I am glad that I have got a chance to do the film," Salman told mediapersons in Mumbai.
The film will be directed by Anees Bazme who directed No Entry [Images], one of Salman's biggest hits.
"I want to do the film for children," the actor continued. "I have found out that I have a huge fan following among kids, and I want to dedicate this film to them." said Salman.
"I will get a new hairstyle for this film. It will be as popular as my hairstyle in Tere Naam [Images]. I want a different kind of look that will become a style statement," Salman added.
Asked was he prepared to stay in a jungle, Salman exclaimed, "Of course! Tarzan lived in a jungle with wild animals. You will see that element in my film too. I only hope animal activists don't come after my life before the film begins!" he laughed.
Does he see a market for such kinds of movies? "If (actor) Hemant Birje could make Tarzan a hit film 20 years ago, then I am sure I too can make it."
