Salman Khan teams up with Sooraj Barjatya again


After the success of ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, Salman Khan and filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya teamed up again but this time for an action flick. Barjatya, who has given the tag of ‘Prem’, a lover boy to Salman is keen to make a film with the hunk again.

Salman and Sooraj’s bonding dates long back when Salman starred in his film, ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’. Busy Salman’s might have his dates packed but he always finds out dates for Sooraj. Salman never say no to Sooraj.

A source said, “Sooraj can get Salman’s dates anytime he wants. He is someone who is very close to the Khan family. Even Salman has a lot of respect for him and knows how Barjatya’s films have helped his career.

When they were meeting at Salman’s house in Bandra and Sooraj proposed the title Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, Salman immediately agreed. If some other director would have suggested, Salman would not have been as accepting.”

Salman has back to back films lines up to shoot but the day Sooraj locked any project, Salman would be available on the set no matter how busy he is.

The source added, “Salman likes to have long discussions with his director. He has advised Sooraj to move on from the family drama genre. He knows that the director has mastered the genre, but Salman feels it doesn’t excite the audience anymore. Prem Ratan…, even though it was a hit, it still wasn’t a film that was loved by everyone. So Salman gave his share of advice to Sooraj. Now let’s see what the director comes up with.”

The duo is doing lots of brainstorming and they might end up sealing an action flick.

According to a source to Mumbai Mirror, “They have discussed an action drama and though Salman will once again play Prem. The film will not be about love. Salman and Sooraj will co-produce the film”. The source further said, “Both agree that it is best for Salman to shed his romantic image. That's the reason he wants to play Prem as an action hero next”.
