With a string of hits behind him, Salman Khan is undoubtedly one of the most successful stars at the moment and that makes him extremely wanted in the film industry. Parineeti Chopra has shown a keen interest in working with him.

Parineeti wishes to work with Sallu. In fact, she has been trying to catch up with him to work out the possibility of a film together. However, as of now, nothing has materialised because the actor has been working round the clock, completing his film commitments," a source told Mid-Day.

However, the leading lady's spokesperson said the actress sure is interested in sharing screen space with the "Sultan" actor, but hasn't sent feelers to him.

So, could it be Kabir Khan's "Tubelight"? A few days ago, an insider told DNA that it will be an "offbeat casting." "He's in talks with someone and mostly it will work out. It's an offbeat casting, something that people won't predict. They will announce the heroine much later because the first schedule won't require her anyway," the daily quoted the source as saying. 

Last year, Parineeti had shared a fitness photoshoot on social media. While some called it her journey to being a stronger, fitter person, many branded it as an audition for "Sultan."

A BollywoodLife source had revealed that the actress was aware that she was being considered for the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial and had a hint that she wouldn't make the cut. This was why she had worked extra hard to look perfect for the part (of a wrestler) she would have played if she had cleared the rounds. There was a strong buzz that Salman thought Parineeti wouldn't do justice to the role, that eventually went to Anushka Sharma.

However, Parineeti had denied the rumours saying she was never approached.

In other news, Parineeti will be next seen in "Meri Pyaari Bindu" alongside Ayushmann Khurrana. Also, she may have been signed on for a special number in "Dishoom."
