We have seen several successful director-actor duos in Bollywood. But if one has to name that one director-actor duo who boasts of hundred percent success ratio, it has to be Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan.

Sooraj and Salman first collaborated on Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), which also marked the directorial debut of the former. The film went on to become an all-time blockbuster and receives great response even today on television premieres.

After the earth-shattering success of Maine Pyar Kiya, Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan came together for Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994). Also starring Madhuri Dixit in the lead roles, the movie is regarded as one of the most commercially successful films of Indian cinema.

The duo joined hands once again in 1999 for the multi-starrer family drama Hum Saath Saath Hain, which too became an instant box-office hit, earning massively across all territories. They last worked together on Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, a box-office blockbuster released in 2015.

Now reports are doing the rounds in media circle that Sooraj Barjatya’s son Devansh Barjatya is set to make his directorial debut with a film featuring Kartik Aaryan in the lead role. However, sources very close to Rajshri Productions say that there is no truth in reports. A source mentions that Devansh will make his debut with a film featuring none other than Salman Khan.

“Unless Devansh is planning a two-hero film, there is no Kartik in his film. Devansh has made it very clear to his entire family that he will make his first film with Salman Khan only. It is a family tradition. Sooraj started his directorial career with Salman and Maine Pyar Kiya. He then went on to make most of his films starring Salman. Devansh has grown up watching his father shooting with Salman. It’s like when Rahul Dev Burman turned music director, he vowed to record his first song with Lata Mangeshkar only, as he had grown up watching his father Sachin Dev Burman working with Lataji,” says the source.

An official announcement is awaited.
