"Shortcut Romeo" director Susi Ganeshan is already working on his next project, a 3D superhero action film and wants to cast Salman Khan in the lead role.

"We are looking for an A-lister. Due to the social message in the film, I am thinking of Salman Khan," said Ganeshan.

The shooting for the yet to be titled film is expected to commence this year-end. "The script is already over. It will release next year," added Ganeshan.

Currently, the director is looking forward to the release of "Shortcut Romeo", which will also be promoted at the forthcoming Cannes film fest. A remake of Ganeshan's Tamil film "Thiruttu Payale", which was a huge hit in the South, the Hindi version stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Puja Gupta and Ameesha Patel.
