It has been a while since Salman Khan has made a new film announcement. Over the last 2 years, the superstar has been busy working on his Eid 2023 and Diwali 2023 release, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan and Tiger 3. But that’s not all, SK has been flooded with offers from filmmakers across genres and it seems that he has gotten back to his original roots. Pinkvilla has exclusively learnt that Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya are reuniting for the fifth time on their next epic family drama tentatively titled Prem Ki Shaadi.

“Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya have been discussing Prem Ki Shaadi for a while now and the film is now in the stage of hitting the floors this year. Salman and Sooraj are looking to start Prem Ki Shaadi from November/December 2023. With the film, Sooraj plans to celebrate love in the backdrop of nuclear families and is among the most special subjects that he has developed till date,” revealed a source close to the development.
Prem Ki Shaadi will be targeting a Diwali 2024 release in cinema halls across the globe and will proceed to the casting stage soon. “Sooraj Barjatya will get into the process of locking the female lead and key ensemble cast of Prem Ki Shaadi in a couple of months. While his films have always had romantic tracks leading to “shaadi”, this time around, the entire conflict revolves around the life of a married couple with strong family elements,” the source added.
