While Sooraj Barjatya’s one son has turned TV producer, the other will apparently assist him on his Salman Khan-starrer. 'Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo'

Even as the Barjatya family celebrates the 100th birth anniversary of Tarachand Barjatya, the founder of Rajshri films, the family’s fourth generation is all set to follow suit by joining the film industry. According to sources, Sooraj Barjatya’s sons, Devansh and Avinesh, will soon take up the family business.

Says a source, “Devansh will be producing television serials and he is already in talks with a television channel. On the other hand, Avinesh, a CA student, has also shown an interest in the entertainment world. He will finish his studies by this December, after which he will assist his father on his latest film project.”

This means that Avinesh is likely work on the Salman Khan-starrer, 'Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo'. The film goes on the floors on May 25, but Avinesh will apparently join the unit only later this year.

The film has Salman playing a double role; it also stars Sonam Kapoor and Anupam Kher in it.
