Prem Ratan Dhan Payo marks the reunion of director Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan after 16 years. Their previous box office hits were Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Hum Saath Saath Hain.
The film’s trailer and melodious have already struck a chord with the audience.
A theatre artist in the film, Salman Khan will be playing the role of Prem, for 16th time in his career. His character entails performing the Ramayan, while Sonam will play the role of a princess.
Talking about the script, Sooraj Barjatya, told India Today channel, “By far, this script is the most evolved one. I have made it with a lot of passion. The film is about family morals. When I went to Salman Bhai with the script, he just connected with it. Salman just said, “Let’s do this, Sooraj Babu, and take it 27 years back.” Salman has been on a high in terms of his success with the roles he has been playing in Dabangg and Kick, but I wanted to get him back to the image he had earlier.”
Barjatya clarified that Salman pulling Sonam’s braid was purely accidental and not a deliberate move to recreate the scene from Ham Dil Chuke Sanam.
The makers of this movie have already recovered most of the film’s cost. Salman reportedly did not charge for doing this movie with the total cost of the movie being estimated at Rs 60 crore! The team has reportedly earned Rs 57 crore through music and satellite rights.
