There was a buzz that Salman will be seen romancing either Parineeti Chopra or Ileana D'Cruz, in the upcoming venture.
"We have not finalised any leading lady yet opposite Salman. We might go with known faces (established actress) or a fresh face but nothing is confirmed yet. Only Salman is on board," a source close to the project said. Rumours were also doing the rounds that the film will bring Salman and Katrina back on screen again.
Even Anushka Sharma's name had come up. The yet to be titled film would mark the reunion of Salman and Barjatya after a gap of almost 14 years.
The duo had last worked in 1999 family drama titled 'Hum Saath Saath Hain'. The new film will be a family drama with only one hero and heroine, the source said. The makers will start shooting for the film from June next year with the shooting taking place in Mumbai, Gujarat and Rajasthan.
