Mumbai, Jan 10 (IANS) Actor-director-producer Atul Agnihotri, keen on roping in his brother-in-law Salman Khan for a cameo in his next political satire titled "Oh Teri", is waiting for the star's dates and adds that Salman's presence makes a lot of difference to any project.

Agnihotri, who has wrapped up two schedules of "Oh Teri", told IANS: "Things take time in our creative field and there is no such status that I can update you with. Salman is busy with his other commitments. Once we get his dates, we will start shooting. As I said earlier, we have designed a special role for Salman in the film, now let's see how things fall in place."

Agnihotri, who is married to Salman's sister Alvira, considers Salman as his lucky mascot. He worked with him in "Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa", "Hello" and "Bodyguard".

Directed by Umesh Bist and produced by Agnihotri, the political satire features Pulikit Samrat in a prominent role.

Salman's presence matters a lot to any film, admits Agnihotri and added: "Salman is a big star. He is loved by people, so of course, his cameo or his presence will make a huge difference to any film."

The filmmaker is ready to start shooting for the third schedule of "Oh Teri".

"We have finished first two schedules. The third schedule will soon go on the floors and will be shot in the outskirts of Mumbai. We are planning to release the film by September 2013," the 42-year-old said.
