Mini Biography :
Sooraj R. Barjatya is an Indian Hindi film director. His films are produced under the Rajshri Productions banner which was first founded in 1947 by his late grandfather Tarachand Barjatya.
He made his directorial debut with Maine Pyar Kiya (1989) starring Salman Khan which was a huge box office hit and launched both his and Salman’s career. He teamed up with Salman again for Hum Aapke Hain Kaun (1994) which became one of the highest all time blockbusters and Hum Saath-Saath Hain: We Stand United (1999) which was a semi-hit. His fourth film Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon starring Hrithik Roshan was the first film directed by him to fail at the box office.

He bounced back with his latest film Vivah (2006) starring Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao, which has proved to be one of the biggest blockbusters in his career since Hum Aapke Hain Kaun.
