Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan's association goes long back. And people have loved their collaborations so far. On Tuesday, Sooraj revealed that he is working on a script already. The filmmaker is currently penning his next film and wants his favourite superstar Salman Khan to frontline it. And that's not all, as per Barjatya, the Bajarangi Bhaijaan has even liked the idea of the script. The 54-year-old actor and the filmmaker had started their Bollywood journeys together with 1989's 'Maine Pyaar Kiya'. Their last outing together was 2015's 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo'.
"I am writing it. In a year or two, I will be done. I have discussed the idea with Salman and he has liked it. It is in my space -- family, drama and emotions," Barjatya told PTI in an interview. However, the director said he is currently focusing on his younger son, Avnish's first directorial debut.
"Avnish is going to make his debut as a director. In late 2017, I was ready to start my film with Salman bhai. I was in the middle of writing, but my son, who assisted me on 'Prem Ratan....', the filmmaker added saying that he is ready to start as a director.

Barjatya further said that he understands the responsibility, "To launch a director in a company after 30 years is a bigger responsibility so I held back. I am there only as a guide, it is his film, his story. It is a complicated love story,"
Barjatya, who hails from Rajshri Productions, known for making simple and family-oriented dramas, said he has advised his son to stay true to the essence of their banner. "I have only told him to keep the Rajshri audience in mind. It is an overseas shoot. We are getting into locking the cast. Once everything is finalised, I will begin work on my film," he added.
Asked if his son's film will feature Salman Khan in any capacity, the director said Avnish has the star's blessings. "He has Salman bhai's blessings. I believe every maker should make a film of their age group and what they believe in like I did with 'Maine Pyaar Kiya'."
Salman and Barjatya have also delivered blockbusters like "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!" and "Hum Saath Saath Hain".
