Salman Khan-Sooraj Barjatya to reunite
The cat is out of the bag. Salman Khan is reuniting with his favourite director Sooraj Barjatya. The director is presently out doing a recce and wants to begin shooting by the end of the year, or early next year. Before that he will shoot for his producer-director buddy Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick, which goes on floors this July.
Sooraj’s film was not planned but when the director approached him, Salman decided to give him dates, making way for it into his overbooked dairy. He went out of his way to accommodate Sooraj’s film. It is learnt that Salman even called Boney Kapoor and requested him to postpone his film No Entry 2 till he finishes the Rajshri Productions’ film, even though he was committed to start it.
Boney confirms that he isn’t starting the film anytime soon but is reluctant to divulge much. He adds, “Talks are on with Salman as far as dates are concerned but I can’t reveal the details.”
The actor shares a special connection with Sooraj. Sooraj made his directorial debut with Maine Pyar Kiya (1989) starring Salman which was a huge box office hit and launched both his and Salman’s careers. He teamed up with Salman again for Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994) which became one of the highest grossers. The last time they came together was for Hum Saath-Saath Hain (1999). While the Barjatya’s are known for their family-oriented films, Salman who has also been part of a large family, believes in such films.
Salman never smokes or drinks onscreen and he has always been allergic to doing kissing or intimate scenes in his films and enjoys doing films that glorify family values.
Now their film will release a decade after their last film together.
