To juggle two shoots, Salman Khan has asked director Kabir Khan to build the set for their next near Karjat, where he is already shooting for his next, Kareena Kapoor-starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

For the shoot of director Sooraj Barjatya’s next Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Salman Khan had given the makers nearly 180 days. It was only after completing this schedule that the actor was supposed to start work on director Kabir Khan’s film Bajrangi Bhaijaan. However, recently, Kabir decided that he wanted to shoot the first schedule in Delhi this month.

To accommodate this shoot in the capital, Salman has taken roughly three weeks off from the 180 days he had allotted to Sooraj for his Sonam Kapoor-starrer. Even after he returns to the city, Salman plans to shoot for Kabir and Sooraj’s film simultaneously.

"Sooraj shares a great relationship with Salman, so he could not refuse him the dates. But obviously, now, the schedule of his film is getting delayed," says a source.

So, in order to ensure the timely completion of both the projects, Salman has now asked Kabir to build the set for his second schedule near Karjat, which is where the actor is already shooting for Sooraj’s film. "Salman came up with this idea so he doesn’t have to waste any time travelling long distances while juggling two shoots," adds the insider.

Confirming the news, Kabir says, "Post the Delhi schedule, I will be building my set in Karjat."
