|Sooraj Barjatya wanted to make a film with Salman Khan for quite some time. While there are many filmmakers in anticipation of the superstar’s dates, Salman has chosen Barjatya’s film over other projects. Why?
As Salman and Sooraj share a special bond, Salman can’t make Sooraj Barjatya wait any longer for movie dates! The director has already finalized the script and Sallu has greenlit the movie to be rolled out soon. According to sources, post his film Kick with Sajid Nadiadwala, Sallu will start working on Sooraj Barjatya’s film from October onwards.
It’s said that though the big filmmakers like Boney Kapoor, Prabhu Deva and Subhash Ghai are in the queue waiting to work with Salman Khan in their respective projects, Sooraj has got Sallu’s dates. “Sooraj (Barjatya) got really lucky. Bhai will start shooting for Sajid’s film in July, post which he will do Sooraj’s film,” a source tells a daily.
Kick was long in the pipeline, and Salman wants to finish it soon so that he can fulfill his commitment to Sooraj, who gave him his first major break into Bollywood with Maine Pyar Kiya (1989). Salman last worked with the filmmaker in Hum Saath Saath Hain 14 years ago, and since then they never got a chance to team up.
Sooraj’s film as always is going to be an intense family drama, reportedly about two brothers. Salman is said to play the big brother in the film. Reports now even suggest that the actress Anushka Sharma has been roped in opposite Salman in the movie.
