Sanjay, Salman to shoot together for Riteish & Sajid’s upcoming show ‘Yaaron Ki Baarat’
If everything goes as planned, fans might get to see two of Bollywood’s biggest stars and long time friends Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan together on television very soon.
According to a report in a leading daily, Sajid Khan and Riteish Deshmukh are trying to get the two friends onboard for the maiden episode of their upcoming show ‘Yaaron Ki Baarat’. The slice-of-life show is set to air in October on Zee TV.
A source close to the development told DNA, “Says a source, “Sanju and Salman have been buddies for decades. They came together for Saajan (1991) and then for Bigg Boss (2011). As the Zee show celebrates filmi friendships and celeb besties with fun and games, Sajid and Riteish thought of approaching Salman and Sanju to come for one episode. Salman is close to Riteish, while Sajid is close to Salman and Sanju.”
“Both loved the concept and on principle agreed to come on board,” he adds.
Getting both Salman and Sanjay for the very first episode may be a gamechanger for their show and guarantee good TRPs for the channel. The fact that the two actors have not appeared on screen together over the last few years will only add to the hype.
While both the actors are currently busy working on their next projects, the makers of the show are trying to finalize the dates for October.
The shooting of ‘Yaaron Ki Baarat’ is expected to start early next month after Riteish finishes the promotion of his upcoming film, ‘Banjo’.
