Here is good news for all Salman Khan's fans, who have been waiting to see him in a romantic role.
Salman Khan, who started his career as the lovelorn Prem in Sooraj R Barjatya's film Maine Pyaar Kiya in 1989, will be seen again in Sooraj Barjatya's next love story, one that comes after a 14-year gap. The film is slated for a 2014 release.
Sooraj made his directorial debut with Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), starring Salman and Bhagyashree, which was a huge box office hit. He teamed up with Salman again for Hum Aapke Hain Koun...! (1994), one of the biggest all-time blockbusters, and Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999) which also became a hit. In each film, Salman was named Prem.
But off-late, Salman has re-invented himself as an action hero with a side-interest in romance. From Radhe in 2009's Wanted to Chulbul Pandey in 2012's Dabangg 2, Salman's biceps have taken centre-stage.
But with Salman and Sooraj Barjatya teaming again, fans can look forward to the return of Prem.
Salman Khan will also be seen in brother Sohail Khan's film Mental, which features newcomer Daisy Shah and Bigg Boss fame actress Sana Khan.
