Shahid Kapoor to replace Salman Khan in Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ki Shaadi’?

Shahid Kapoor will reunite with Sooraj Barjatya in the upcoming film ‘Prem Ki Shaadi’, replacing Salman Khan, who was the initial choice.

It is reported that Khan stepped away from the project due to creative disputes with the director. This would’ve been the fifth collaboration between Khan and Barjatya after the blockbusters ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’, ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’, and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’.

Kapoor previously worked with Barjatya on the hit film ‘Vivah’ in 2006.

A source told PeepingMoon,”Barjatya intends to proceed with this project even after Salman Khan turned it down. He is now tweaking the script and has toned down the age of the lead character. When Salman left the movie, he immediately approached Shahid, who also played the role of ‘Prem’ in his 2006 romantic drama, Vivah. Both have met multiple times, and their conversations thus far point to the possibility of their reunion after 18 years. Barjatya is hopeful to get him on board, while Shahid has also shown his interest, but he hasn’t given his final nod yet.”
