Filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya is never in a hurry to make a movie, his last film Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo starring Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor being only his sixth as a director. However, it enjoyed quite a deal of success earning more than Rs 400 crore worldwide. PRDP was three years ago and if reports are to believed Barjatya will soon work on a movie, but this time not as a director.
The movie, which is touted to be a family drama, will revolve around 4 different characters. The filmmaker was quite impressed by a script, however, he is not planning to direct the movie himself. Barjatya has asked one of his assistant directors to direct the movie.
A source told Deccan Chronicle “Sooraj liked a story about four protagonists, and the relationships that they share. Hence, he wants to go ahead with the film soon. But he has asked one of his associates to helm the project.”
Reportedly, Barjatya is probably going to ditch his favourite actor, Salman Khan and pursue new faces, instead of established actors. But there are also reports that Salman’s schedule is packed and Barjatya has no option but to look for other actors.
Rajshri Productions, which is Barjatya’s production house, hasn’t worked on a movie ever since PRDP. Salman Khan is currently busy shooting for Race 3.
