Salman Khan releases first look of ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’


The first look of his new film, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo features actor Salman Khan with his back to the camera, looking quite the aristocrat in a royal blue embellished kurta, white dhoti and a golden stole.

While sharing the first look on his Twitter account, Salman captioned the image as, “Good afternoon. Welcoming Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem again.”

Salman will, apparently, be seen in the double role of a prince and a commoner in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which reunites the actor with Sooraj Barjatya, the director responsible for his Prem persona in films such as Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Hum Saath Saath Hain.

The reel-name ‘Prem’ was overshadowed in recent years by Dabangg‘s Chulbul Pandey, Kick‘s Devil and Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘s Pawan. The last time Salman, 49, was named Prem on screen was in 2011’s Ready.

Produced by the Barjatya-owned Rajshri Productions and distributed by Fox star studios, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo releases this Diwali and also features Sonam Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar, Deepak Dobriyal and Armaan Kohli in key roles.
