Mumbai: We learnt that Salman Khan’s next film with Sooraj Barjatya is all set to go on the floors early next year. Following the banner’s tried and tested formula, the film is tentatively titled Bade Bhaiyya, where Sallu plays the titular role. And in keeping with the tradition, his character will be called Prem.

Big brother

Although the rest of the cast is yet to be finalised, our source reveals that the film will feature a number of familiar faces from the banner’s previous films. “Salman will play the character of the elder brother, that was traditionally done by Mohnish Behl in the films by the banner,” says our source.

Casting for the film will start in a month. “By then, he’ll (Sooraj) have also finalised the music team and will commence the sittings. There are at least half-a-dozen tracks in the film. The melody will be the highlight of the soundtrack,” sums up our source.

Past tense

The last time Salman did a full-fledged film with the Barjatyas was Hum Saath Saath Hai in 1999. Reportedly, the family was upset with the black buck hunting case during the shooting in Jodhpur and consequently, stopped working with him. Sallu returned to the Barjatya banner in 2010 with a cameo in Isi Life Mein.
