Salman to work with Sooraj Barjatya
But the 'Bodyguard' refuses Ashutosh Gowarikar
If you are among the millions who have loved Salman Khan in Rajshri production films like 'Maine Pyar Kiya' and 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun', there's good news. Buzz is that Salman will play the lead in a romantic film to be made by his favourite director Sooraj Barjatya. It will be an out and out love story and no prizes for guessing what he will be called – Prem!
Apparently, Salman has been wanting to work in a love story for a long time and who better than Sooraj to bring out the romantic in him? After all, 'Maine Pyar Kiya' and 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun' still rank among Sallu's best works.
While the actor is excited to team up with Sooraj again, other directors continue to get the cold shoulder. The story goes that Salman refused award-winning filmmaker Ashutosh Gowarikar when the latter approached him for a role. His logic? He works only in hit films not good ones! The hot-headed actor is believed to have told the director: "I work in films that make money, not the ones that get awards"!
A crestfallen Ashutosh had no option but to think about another star for his venture. Clearly Ashu's loss is Sooraj's gain.
