DELHI– Superstar Salman Khan, whose portrayal as an innocent Lord Hanuman devotee in “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” won the audience’s heart, says his forthcoming film “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” is the “most beautiful” film he has done in his over two decade-old career.
“It is my guarantee that this is by far one of the most beautiful films I’ve done. It is family-oriented and you know that every family faces some problems, but those people are lucky to have a family,” Salman said here at an event.
With “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, the 49-year-old is revisiting his popular onscreen name ‘Prem’, and the film also brings him together with Sooraj Barjatya after 16 years.
They have previously worked in three blockbusters like “Maine Pyar Kiyaa, “Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!” and “Hum Saath-Saath Hain”. And Salman has no qualms to confess that “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” outshines the duo’s previous collaborations.
“Every film is different. Some are good, some are bad but this is a very good film. The makers of ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun…!’ and ‘Hum Saath-Saath Hain’ have made ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ with me and this one is better than those three films,” said the son of lyricist Salim Khan.
“Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” paints a ‘desi’ fantastical story on ‘larger-than-life’ canvas. The film, which also stars Anupam Kher and Swara Bhaskar, will release on November 12.
Salman, who was accompanied by his co-star Sonam Kapoor at the event here on Wednesday, said that it’s time for some “full-on family” film outing.
“It is guaranteed that with whatever mood you enter the cinema hall, you’ll come out with a better mood. There will be tears of happiness. If you love your wife or girlfriend, family, then the film would definitely touch you in some way,” he said.
Post “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, Salman will focus all his attention to “Sultan”, in which he will be seen as a wrestler.
