After the success of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan," Salman Khan's next release will be "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo," (PRDP) where he reunites with filmmaker Sooraj Barjatiya of Rajshri Films. Barjatiya and Salman have previously worked on three hit films together, which were crucial to both their film careers - "Maine Pyar Kiya," "Hum Aapke Hain Kaun" and "Hum Saath Saath Hain."
Obviously, there are tons of expectations from "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" and is slated to be another big Salman blockbuster. The film releases Nov. 12.
Here are 10 things you wanted to know about the film:
1) The film revolves around a royal family. Salman plays a double role in PRDP - Prem, the Prince and Vijay, a fighter.
2) Salman makes style statements in every film that he does. This time one character of his have a mustache, and the other won't. Salman will also sport diamonds on both his ears as Prem, who is the prince.
3) Since Salman is playing a double role, his body double has been doing a lot of shooting for him recently. While Salman would shoot for 3-4 hours, the rest would be taken care off by his double.
4 Salman will be seen taking his shirt off in this one too, as is the norm with most of his films.
5) Even though PRDP is essentially a family film and Bajratiya doesn't really have any violence in his movies, this one will have lots of action. But still in keeping with Barjatiya's sensibility.
6) Sonam plays the role of a reserved and shy princess, who is engaged to get married to Prem. She will be seen wearing lots of traditional outfits and sarees.
7) Barjatiya's films are known for its music. Himesh Reshammiya has composed songs the album for PRDP. The music director has composed a 13-minute song, which is said to be Bollywood's longest song ever. The soundtrack will be traditional.
8) Neil Nitin Mukesh plays Salman's younger step-brother Ajay Singh, a gray character. According to Neil it's a complex and layered character - a rebel with a cause.
9) Armaan Kohli, who also is Salman's brother in the film, is said to be playing a negative character.
10) Barjatiya wants to make a 3-hour long film, which is his trademark style, but Salman has been coaxing him to reduce the length of the film as times have now changed with the advent of multiplexes and audiences changed sensibilities. They are still fighting it out apparently. Let's see who wins.
Here's one more interesting fact about "PRDP." This will Salman's first Diwali release in many years. In fact, we don't even remember the last time his movie released on Diwali, do you?
