"We have committed for a film, but right now he is busy with some other projects. We will sit down together and talk about it soon. I will be directing Salman Khan in my next film," Ghai told IANS.
The filmmaker, who has given the rights of his 1983 blockbuster "Hero" to Salman, says the 47-year-old is family for him.
The director of hits like "Karz", "Saudagar" and "Khalnayak", said: "Salman is a family to me. He said he would like to remake my film and I said go ahead. He said how much should I pay you and I told him, you just make the film. It's very simple."
"Hero" is still remembered for it songs "Lambi judai" and "Nindya se jaagi bahaar".
