Salman Khan is on a new high. Though his solo starrer "Garv" has finally settled down to being just an average grosser, he has again proved his star power with distributors clamouring to buy his two new films "Phir Milenge" and "Dil Ne Jissey Apna Kahaa".

In Revathy's "Phir Milenge" about HIV/AIDS, he plays Shilpa Shetty's supportive boyfriend. Salman didn't charge a single penny from his old colleague Revathi (the two had starred together in "Love").

His second film "Dil Ne..." is his home production and is directed by his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri. Interestingly, Preity Zinta had a guest appearance to begin with, but her role has now been extended to a full-fledged heroine's part. "I've never had my role extended before. The chemistry between us is unbelievable," Preity chuckles.
