"I am returning to direction. I have two films.. one with Salman that I will start next year and other I will start shooting this year," Ghai told PTI.
Earlier, the duo came together for Yuvvraj in 2008, but it was a Box Office failure. Ghai admits that he made a mistake by making a romantic-musical film with Khan. "After Wanted he has emerged as the new action hero. Audience likes to see him in this zone. It would be foolish on my part to make romantic kind of films with him. We made a mistake by casting him in Yuvvraj," Ghai said.
"I have signed Salman for my film. Considering Salman's superstar status and the love that he has got for doing action films, I would be making an action-masala kind of movie. He is Superman Salman. We are working on the script," he added.
The superstar, who is basking in the success of Kabir Khan's spy flick Ek Tha Tiger, has his hands full with several projects like Dabangg 2, Sher Khan and Kick.
"He has other commitments. So once he is done with all of them. We will start working next year," Ghai said.
