Devansh Barjatya makes his Bollywood debut
Established in 1962, Rajshri Productions has given the Hindi film industry several memorable films. In 1989, Sooraj Barjatya took over the reins of the company from his father, Tarachand Barjatya, and carried on the family tradition of making stirring family dramas like Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Hum Saath Saath Hai and Vivah.
According to a source close to the Barjatyas, the tradition will now be carried forward with Devansh Barjatya stepping in to assist his father Sooraj Barjatya in their next production starring Salman Khan.
Devansh is currently in charge of the television department of the company, but when Barjatya starts shooting the movie with Khan, he will assist his father.
Meanwhile, the makers have been on the lookout for a female lead opposite Khan, who plays a double role in the film. Reports that Deepika Padukone is a strong contender for the role has been doing the rounds for sometime.
