Rajkumar Santoshi, whose last outing was the dud Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, wants to make a film with none other than Salman Khan.
The director has met Sallu at least three times over the past few days. In fact, their last meeting took place at the star's home in Galaxy Apartments (Bandra)
. Santoshi, we hear, had even taken his team of writers along.
The filmmaker had directed Salman in the 1994 cult comedy, Andaz Apna Apna.
Santoshi, who has many other hits like Ghayal (1990), Damini (1993), Pukar (2000), Khakee (2004) and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009) to his credit, has been trying to find his feet again after the 2013 Shahid Kapoor-starrer tanked at the box-office.

After PPNH’s failure, Santoshi had approached Anil Kapoor for a film based on the play Jis Lahore Nahi Dekhiya Woh Jamiya Nahi, which revolves around a Hindu and Muslim family in Lahore. However, the collaboration did not materialise.
