Will wait for Salman Khan, says Sooraj Barjatya

Superstar Salman Khan is extremely busy with the shooting of Bharat and according to the latest report, the actor will also be collaborating with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his next, which means his dates are blocked. However, filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya, who is very fond of Salman, has an idea ready for him but will wait for the actor to give him dates.
“I will wait for Salman Khan because this is a big film for me, I am not in any hurry. That film will take time, I still have to put it down,” says Sooraj, who was recently busy promoting his film Hum Chaar.
Sooraj, who has earlier collaborated with Salman Khan for films like Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Apke Hain Kaun, Hum Saath Saath Hai and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, reveals his next is a very special film but not a family drama. “There is an idea that I have discussed with him. It’s a little too early because I have to put it down. But, for me, this is the most satisfying and most important film of my life,” says the 55-year-old director.
“What I have learnt in 32 years as a filmmaker, is what I will put in this film. This film is for him. It’s not a joint family drama but about a husband and wife,” he adds.
The filmmaker who has worked with the biggest stars reveals he never had to bow down to the demands of commercial aspects that comes with stars.
Sooraj says, “Fortunately, I have had success and this doesn’t happen in such a case. I have been lucky that when I work with a superstar like Salman, he trusts me. To an extent, directors have to put their foot down in some way but sometimes it is difficult because there’s a lot of money involved.”
