While answering the question, the director revealed that Salman wanted to do Uunchai. But he said that he wanted a different cast for it. Sooraj said, “Like I said, ismein maine sab bandhan tod diye. Ek charm tha Prem rakho toh chal jaye, but ismein sab bandhan tod diye maine. When I told Salman (Khan) that I am making this film, he said, ‘Why are you going to hills to make this film?’ Then later he said, ‘I can do this film’ but I said no because I wanted a different cast.”  

‘Salman is my best friend’

Sooraj and Salman share an emotional bond right from their first film together. During the event, Sooraj was asked to reveal who is his best friend, he took Salman’s name. Their fans are eagerly waiting for their next project. Both of them have confirmed in the past that they are working on something special.
