With 5 back-to-back blockbusters, every director in the industry wants to work with Salman Khan. But due to time constraints and his motto of working only in films that his fans want to see, Salman has rejected film offers from quite a few top directors in the recent past.
But the director who launched him in Maine Pyaar Kiya, and also gave the superstar the biggest hit of his career (Hum Aapke Hain Kaun), has been waiting with a bound script for the last year or so.
After working with Hrithik Roshan in Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon and Shahid Kapoor in Vivaah, veteran director Sooraj Barjatya called it ‘his dream’ to work with Salman once again. He has already narrated the script of the film tentatively titled ‘Bade Bhaiya’, and is now waiting for the actor to give him his dates.
But the problem is, Salman doesn’t have any! He is currently shooting for Sohail Khan’s Mental, after which he is committed to Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Kick’ and a Prabhu Deva directed film. Only after these 3 films are complete, can the actor move on to other projects.
A source close to Barjatya says “Currently, Salman has too much on his plate this year.. so the film won’t happen before 2014. Soorajji has been waiting patiently for his dream film that revolves around the relationship between two brothers. Salman will play the older brother (hence the title Bade Bhaiya), while a younger actor (Arjun Kapoor’s name has been doing the rounds) will be signed to play his younger brother. After Salman gives his dates, the hunt for the other actor will begin”
We’d love to see Salman in a family drama once again. A good change for his fans, who’ve been watching him bash baddies non-stop in the last three years or so.
