Earlier, DNA reported that, “Sanjay, who is penning the script, has narrated the idea to Salman and he is on board. Though the film isn’t a sequel or a remake, it may be called Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2. SLB feels that the movie has all the elements that Hum Dil… had. So, the title feels like a natural fit for part two. However, it will have a different story and new characters. An A-list heroine will be cast opposite Salman, but the makers haven’t approached anyone as yet.”

On work front, Salman Khan will soon start promoting his period drama film ;Bharat’ which is releasing on EId whereas Alia Bhatt will next be seen in Abhishek Varman’s Kalank which is scheduled to release on 19th of April.
