If Salman Khan's name in a movie isn't Prem, is it even a movie? Well, it might be. But it is certainly not a Rajshri Productions' project. Ask a '90s kid and there cannot be enough movies by Sooraj Barjatya starring Salman. We have seen him in Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Hum Saath Saath Hain, Maine Pyar Kiya, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and if all goes well, there would be one more rendition of Prem in our lives. Sooraj has revealed that he already has a story in mind and he has even talked to Salman about it. But don't get too excited already because the movie might not come out until 2021. Read on to know why. Whoa! Rohit Shetty to Direct Salman Khan in Kick 2? - Read Inside Deets.

While talking to mid-day, Sooraj said, "I have discussed the primary idea with Salman. It's going to be a family drama, and not an action film. All I can say is that it will have all the necessary ingredients that a Rajshri production has — emotions, drama and a lot of music. It is going to be my most satisfying film,"

But Sooraj added that he is concentrating on launching his son Avinash in Bollywood. No, we are not getting one more hero. But Avinash will be making his directorial debut soon. ‘Dream Come True!’, Hum Chaar Star Tushar Pandey on Acting in a Rajshri Film.

Talking more about the Salman starrer, Sooraj revealed that he has not even written the script of the film yet. "I am going to put pen to paper after March, and hopefully, we should roll by next year," he said, adding, "Whenever I am ready with the script, Salman has assured me that he will be ready too,"

Salman was last seen as the family-oriented Prem in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in 2015. The movie turned out to be the biggest hit of the year. What do you think are the chances of the upcoming venture being a sequel to PRDP? Fans would love that.
