The images of Salman Khan clad in dhoti and kurta on the sets of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo may lead one to believe that the superstar plays a family-oriented, “sanskari” character in Sooraj Barjatya’s film. But we hear that the actor plays a boxer in the movie.
That’s interesting! It seems Salman Khan gets to don everything from dhoti-kurta to boxing gloves in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. As a tabloid reports, Salman, who has double roles in the film, will essay the character of a boxer as one of his roles.
Playing a boxer won’t be tough for this ‘dabangg’ as he owes his success to action films like Wanted and the recently released Kick. The actor was also seen boxing in one of the advertisements of Dixcy Scott -- a brand that he endorses -- last year.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is going to be a typical Barjatya-affair with family ties and relationships at the core of the story. The movie also stars Sonam Kapoor in the lead opposite Salman, while Neil Nitin Mukesh plays a character with shades of grey.
Other actors who are playing fighters in their upcoming films include names like Priyanka Chopra playing titular role in 'Mary Kom' -- a biopic on the world boxing champ from Manipur. Ranbir Kapoor, too, is playing a street fighter in Bombay Velvet. Rani Mukerji has also shown her Krav Maga (a form of martial arts) skills in Mardaani.
