Writer-director Rumi Jaffery, who worked with Salman Khan in God Tussi Great Ho, says the 'blockbuster' actor has become a huge star and that he would love to do a film with him again.
He's popular, he's loved and he's one of a kind. Here's catching the many moods of Salman Khan as he promotes his upcoming film Ek Tha Tiger.
It was in 2008 when Rumi made his directorial debut with God Tussi Great Ho, which saw Salman, Amitabh
Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Sohail Khan in the lead.
The film was a humorous take on the story of a man, played by Salman, who curses god for his failures. What happens to him when God, played by Bachchan, hands over his power to him and asks him to run earth for few days is what the film is all about.
"He is a huge star today, whatever he does becomes super hit...blockbuster. I don't have anything specific written for him right now. I don't have that kind of subject that would suit him. But I would love to do a film with him," Rumi told PTI.
"The two projects that I am working on does not suit him," he said.
Rumi highlighted the issue of corruption in his last directorial venture Gali Gali Chor Hai.
"All my films have been of comedy nature but have some serious elements added to it. One story is based on relationships, relation between a husband and wife, brother-sister, mother-father. It talks about how love, intensity, emotion and warmth are fading away today. This will be a multi-starrer film," Rumi said.
"The other story tells that how people today go for or believe in taking shortcut to achieve success. They don't believe in hard work...they don't have self-respect," he said.
Rumi has not yet finished penning the scripts completely.
"I am working on two stories simultaneously. Once I am done writing then I will think of casting actors," Rumi said.
