Salman Khan and Amisha Patel have been teamed for the first time in Ketan Manmohan Desai's YEH HAI JALWA, directed by David Dhawan. Incidentally, David has always said that he is inspired by the Manmohan Desai formula of film-making and YEH HAI JALWA is his second film for the banner, the first being DEEWANA MASTANA.

YEH HAI JALWA will be Salman's second release in 2002, after the much-hyped TUMKO NA BHOOL PAAYENGE. Co-starring with Salman and Amisha are Rishi Kapoor, Rati Agnihotri, Anupam Kher, Kader Khan, Rinke Khanna, Sharad Kapoor, Navin Nischol, Kiran Kumar, Shahbaaz Khan, Jaspal Bhatti and Master Ajay Nagrath.
Shot at the eye-filling locations of U.K. and Australia, YEH HAI JALWA stars Sanjay Dutt in a special appearance. Incidentally, before YEH HAI JALWA went on the floors, Ketan Desai had started a Sanju ? Salman starrer, which was shelved after its first schedule.
YEH HAI JALWA tells the story of a son (Salman Khan) who goes in search for his father. The plot thickens when the son suddenly discovers that the father (Rishi Kapoor) he thought was dead for all these years is alive and is in fact one of the richest men in U.K.
So what happens when the father, happily settled with his wife and children, is suddenly confronted with a grown up illegitimate son?
Rishi Kapoor and Rati Agnihotri (together after KUCH KHATTI KUCH MEETHI) live happily with their family, Kader Khan (Rishi Kapoor's father), Rinke Khanna (Rishi ? Rati's daughter) and Master Ajay Nagrath (Rishi ? Rati's son). Till Salman enters their lives.
Treated humorously, YEH HAI JALWA is one film David Dhawan is looking forward to since his last release, KYO KIIc MAIN JHUTH NAHIN BOLTA, bombed at the box-office. Incidentally, David's two films will be released close to each other, HUM KISISE KUM NAHIN on May 3 YEH HAI JALWA on May 31.

YEH HAI JALWA has music by Himesh Reshammiya
