More about Sooraj Barjatya and his professional life
Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan share an enduring collaboration in the film industry. Their initial venture, 'Maine Pyaar Kiya,' marked a blockbuster success, establishing a strong bond between Rajshri Productions (headed by Barjatya) and Salman. In an interview with India Today in September 2023, the filmmaker affirmed that Salman is set to make a comeback in their next project, which is scheduled to commence filming soon.
Sooraj Barjatya told the news outlet, “I am starting with Salman mid-next year because when I make a film, I become selfish. Today, at this stage of my life as a director, I have become selfish. I write the film myself and when I write myself, then I take my own time. With Salman especially, since we are doing something together after a long time, it has to be something special, especially after all these years. So yeah, I will start next year mid.”
Only time will confirm with Salman would be a part of Sooraj’s upcoming OTT project.
