The filming will begin most likely in September after Salman finishes shooting cop actioner Dabangg 3. While the rest of the cast has not been decided yet, the makers are looking to hire an A-lister as the female lead of the romantic drama. And the music of the film will be scored by Bhansali himself, who had also won accolades for composing the soundtrack of Padmaavat, according to reports.
Meanwhile, Salman is currently busy shooting his upcoming film Bharat along with Katrina Kaif. He has just launched newcomers Pranutan and Zaheer Iqbal in Notebook, which will hit screens on March 29.
