There are rumours doing rounds in the tinsel town about Sooraj Barjatya penning the sequel to his 1994 blockbuster 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun' starring Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit. Sources suggest that the producer-director is in the process of finalising the star cast and has approached Ranbir Kapoor to play the hero.
A source says, "The film had ended with Prem and Nisha getting married and the sequel will pick up from there. Barjatya will start working on the project soon. Contrary to rumours, Salman will not be seen in the lead role, but Ranbir. Barjatya will start the pre-production work only after locking the star cast."
A source close to the filmmaker's production house confirms the buzz while saying that the filmmaker is presently focussed on Salman Khan-Sonam Kapoor starrer 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo'. "Hum Aapke… sequel will go on floors only after his current project releases. No actor has been finalised, but Ranbir is definitely being considered for the lead role," adds the source.
