Mumbai: After high octane action flicks, Salman is back to where he belongs. The actor has just signed a romantic film with Sooraj Barjatya.
Talking to a daily, a source revealed that Salman will be called Prem in this mushy love story. “Salman wanted Sooraj to make a love story since that was his forte. Also, Salman told him that he has been doing too many action films of late, including the ones he is still shooting for, and now wants a break. Sooraj agreed to make a simple sweet romantic film with Salman,” the source said.
The female lead is yet to be finalised and the actor will help Barjatya finalise the actress.
Salman and Barjatya go back a long way, in fact, Salman was launched with ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’ and delivered huge hit like ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’ under Rajshri banner.
Buzz has it that after the lukewarm response of ‘Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon’ and ‘Vivaah’, Barjatya was desperate for a hit and had been sending feelers to Salman till the actor signed the project. The untitled film is expected to go on floors in June 2012.
