As Madhuri Dixit Nene and Salman Khan-starrer "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!" completes 25 years today, the makers are planning to host a special screening of the film next week. The 1994 movie, directed by Sooraj Barjatya and produced by Rajshri Productions, is one of the biggest and most popular Hindi films across the globe. Besides Salman and Madhuri, the musical family drama featured Mohnish Bahl, Renuka Shahane, Anupam Kher, Reema Lagoo, Alok Nath and others.

"A special screening is being planned for August 9 at Liberty cinema with the entire cast including Salman, Madhuri and other members of the film. The entire team will relive the moments again, they will all talk about their experiences and all," source close to the development said. "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!" is a modern take on Rajshri Productions' 1982 film "Nadiya Ke Paar".  The 1982 movie was based on a novel ‘Kohbar ki Shart’.

The film won several awards including the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.  

Meanwhile, filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya has revealed he will be reuniting with Salman Khan for a family drama, the idea of which he has already discussed with the superstar.  Sooraj has collaborated with Salman, right from his debut "Maine Pyaar Kiya" to "Hum Aapke Hain Koun!", "Hum Saath Saath Hain" and recently "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo."  The director said currently he is consumed with work on his production, "Hum Chaar" and work on the Salman film will begin much later.  "Right now the focus is on 'Hum Chaar'. Then my younger son Avnish will debut as a writer-director with a film this year. It's a very big responsibility. After that I start writing my film with Salman," Barjatya told PTI.

There were also reports that the filmmaker was keen to have Salman feature in his son's debut but Sooraj said that is not happening. "Initially there were just talks but it was never discussed. My son is making a love story, a young film, so Salman doesn't fit in," he added.
