Squeezing dates into Salman Khan's packed calendar is a herculean task for any director. But when friends and family decide to steer the ship, the superstar tries to make time.

Although he didn't take up Karan Johar's "Shuddhi" and turned down Aanand L Rai's untitled project, the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is in talks with brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri for his next.

Talking to DNA Agnihotri said they have a beautiful script but nothing has been finalised yet.

"We haven't titled it yet. But there are definitely a lot of options. it's not the right time to commit to anything. We will plan to name and announce it soon. Right now, it's all in the planning stage. We have a beautiful script with which we are going ahead. About the heroine, we haven't spoken to anyone yet, but I will update you as soon as I finalise the cast," he further elaborated.

This would be their third film together after "Hello" (2008) and "Dil Ne Jise Apna Kaha" (2004). Also, Agnihotri has produced blockbusters such as "Bodyguard" (2011) and "Jai Ho" (2014).

For now, Salman is busy with "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" promotions, which releases on Eid next month, and still has portions of "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" to complete.

The suave star also has Yash Raj Films' "Sultan" in the pipeline, for which he needs to achieve a lean look as he will reportedly be seen playing a 40-year-old boxer.

In other news, buzz around the Kabir Khan directorial is phenomenal and will for sure work in its favour. With over several million hits on YouTube, the teaser, trailer and song videos are already a hit with the star's fans.
