Filmmaker-actor Atul Agnihotri is all set to do a film with his brother-in-law actor Salman Khan and it will be an action movie.
Salman and Atul had teamed up for 'Bodyguard' which did good business at the box office.
"I am doing a movie with Salman. It is completely an original script...and not a remake. It is in scripting stage. I am actively involved in the project," Atul told PTI.
"The work is under progress. It is difficult to talk more about it as we are still working on it," he said.
Considering that most of Salman's films like 'Wanted', 'Dabangg', 'Bodyguard', 'Ek Tha Tiger' and 'Dabangg 2' have revolved around larger-than-life-action were blockbusters, Atul is also not shying away from taking the benefit of this genre.
On if it will be an action movie, Atul said, "Action is a pre-requisite of all his films so action will be there in this film too."
If all goes well, Atul intends to begin work on this project from next year.
Atul made his debut as a director with 'Dil Ne Jise Apna Kaha' (2004) featuring Salman, Preity Zinta and Bhoomika Chawla. The film did not enjoy a good run at the box office.
Undeterred by this, he directed and even turned a producer with 'Hello' (2008), a film based on the novel 'One Night at a Call Centre', in which Salman had a cameo.
Atul returned to production with Salman-Kareena Kapoor starrer action-romantic film 'Bodyguard' (2011), which was a huge hit at the box office. One of the reigning stars of Bollywood, Salman is aware that it his name that is going to help in garnering attention and pushing the 'Being Human' brand.
"There are perks attached to it (to my name) that I can use my name and raise money, but I think 'Being Human' will be a lot bigger than Salman," he said.
