Salman Khan turns producer

Salman Khan has recommended his friend Himesh Reshammiya to Sooraj Barjatya for his next film.

Khan suggested Reshammiya’s name to Barjatya as music composer for the untitled film, which goes on the floors next year. It is said that the film is being readied for a Diwali 2015 release.

An official from Rajshri Productions told Times Of India, “Himesh will compose the music and Irshad Kamil (of Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal, Rockstar and Aashiqui 2 fame) will pen the lyrics.” It is an unlikely choice for the Barjatyas, who are known to stick to traditional Indian folk and classical music, while Himesh’s strong point has been highly charged electronic music. The buzz is that it was Salman who convinced Sooraj.

This will be Khan-Barjatya’s first film in 15 years.
