Director Kabir Khan is on a roll with three big projects in his hands. Kabir is currently working with Saif Ali Khan and has signed Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan for his upcoming projects.

The "Ek Tha Tiger" director has roped in Roshan for his third film, which is set to be a passionate love story. The film is set against a historical and political backdrop, Mumbai Mirror reported.

Apparently, Roshan loved the story and has given his approval for the same.

"He loved the script and has given the nod to the film since he hasn't done a love story in a while. Kabir finalised 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' while he was shooting 'Phantom' and now he's finalised Hrithik for this as-yet-untitled film. He wants to direct one film a year, and is working on the logistics of two films simultaneously," a source told the tabloid.

The leading lady is yet to be finalised for the untitled film, but the tabloid reports that the director is considering either Deepika Padukone or Jacqueline Fernandez for the role.

Kabir is currently in Vancouver, Canada, to finish the last shooting schedule of "Phantom" starring Saif and Katrina Kaif. The film is still in its production stage and will hit the screens in April next year.

His next project will be "Bajrangi Bhaijaan," once "Phantom" is completed. It features Salman and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the leading roles.

Kabir took to his Twitter handle to announce the release date and star cast of the film "Bajrangi Bhaijaan".

"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" will be Kabir's second film with Salman that will hit the screens on Eid. In 2012, Kabir released "Ek Tha Tiger" with Salman on Eid and it went on to become a blockbuster hit.
