|Salman shines in 'Garv'|

|Salman Khan is maintaining a low profile of late, but the actor, who bounced back with TERE NAAM last year, is all geared up for an eventful year ahead.
To start with, the actor will have two releases in the coming months - Cinevistaas' GARV [directed by actor turned director Puneet Issar] and MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI [directed by David Dhawan], in which he teams with Akshay Kumar for the first time.
gIt's Salman's best performance to date,h states Puneet Issar. Those who have viewed the rushes of the film endorse Puneet's statement completely. Incidentally, GARV is supposed to be the most expensive Salman starrer to date. Reportedly, Cinevistaas have spent a fortune in the making of the film.
|The second Salman film to release this year is Sajid Nadiadwala's MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI, directed by David Dhawan. After JUDWAA [David Dhawan] and HAR DIL JO PYAAR KAREGA [Raj Kanwar], both produced by Sajid, the Salman camp insists that the actor is in great form in this flick as well.
Salman has much more to look forward to in 2004c
Besides these two films, the actor teams up with two of his favourites yet again in their forthcoming films - Sooraj R. Barjatya and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
| After starting their careers with Salman [Sooraj's debut-making film was MAINE PYAR KIYA, while Bhansali made his debut with KHAMOSHI - THE MUSICAL], the directors opted for other actors in their subsequent films. But both Sooraj and Bhansali have teamed up with Salman yet again.
While Sooraj's project will be a family drama [the Rajshris aren't too willing to reveal the genre of the film at this stage], Bhansali's film with Salman - BAJIRAO MASTANI - will roll soon after the director completes work on BLACK [Amitabh Bachchan].

Salman Khan took centre stage to auction a 24 karat gold trophy.
The auction money was to be donated for charitable causes.
Nominated for his heart-wrenching act in Tere Naam, Khan didn't win any awards. But his costar in the film Bhoomika Chawla bagged the Best Female Newcomer Award.
|Big B - Hema - Salman in 'Babul'|
|By Taran AdarshIndiaFM@Jan 17 2004|
|Ravi Chopra's much-talked-about MITTI, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan, has been put on hold. gWe wanted to shoot in Rajasthan. But it's not possible at this time of the year. Besides, Aamir Khan's film, based on the 1857 uprising [THE RISING], also looks at the same period. It doesn't make sense to start shooting MITTI now. We will delay it for some time at least,h he reveals.|
|Instead, Chopra is getting ready to make yet another family saga, post-BAGHBAN. Titled BABUL, the film will feature heavyweights like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Hema Malini. One more actor and actress are yet to be finalised. The scripting will be over by the end of January and the shooting will commence from February-end or early March. Chopra is hoping for a Diwali release.|
|gThe story deals with the rehabilitation of a daughter-in-law by her father-in-law, after she becomes a widow. We are trying to put across the message that one should not expect a woman to die along with her husband,h he remarks. However, Chopra clarifies that the film will not be a social comment on the Sati system;
it will be more contemporary in nature.
Chopra continues, gAfter Amit-ji, her role [the daughter-in-law] will be the most important in the film. Preity or Rani would be ideal for the role. I haven't approached them yet since I'm waiting for the script to get over,h he shares.
A thriller is also on the cards. Essentially a love triangle with two boys and one girl, it will be a small-budget experimental subject to be made within two months. The story, penned by Ram Govind, will be partly based in a jail.
