Bollywood star Salman Khan is rumoured to star opposite ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif in Atul Agnihotri's next.

Salman and his brother-in-law Agnihotri gave a blockbuster film together in 2011 – "Bodyguard." After that they are supposed to come together to make another action-packed love story.

Kabir Khan might direct the film for Atul and Katrina is the choice for lead actress, according to Pinkvilla.

If the "Phantom" actress gets finalised for the film opposite Salman, it will be their fifth film together. Also, if Kabir directs the flick, then it will be the third one with both the actors.

Salman and Katrina appeared last on silver screen in Kabir Khan's directorial "Ek Tha Tiger" in 2012, which was a hit at the box office.

Though no confirmation has been made yet, director Kabir seems to take interest in the script.

"I have just had two releases. I will take some time to start the next. I would like to take at least a month break. Also so far nothing is confirmed. It all depends upon the script to collaborate on this project. I have to yet discuss the idea and script logistics," Pinkvilla quoted Kabir.

On the other hand, Salman will be seen in Sooraj Barjatya's "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" this Diwali. Post the release, the actor will start a non-stop schedule in Haryana for "Sultan" which is set to release on Eid in 2016.

After "Sultan", the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actor will look over Atul's film project.
