Salman Khan has been involved in the creative process of Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. The actor apparently even suggested whom he doesn’t want to romance in the movie.
It’s a known fact that several heroines including Sonakshi Sinha and Deepika Padukone were vying to be cast opposite Salman Khan in the movie, but the role was lapped up by Sonam Kapoor. Now, it’s heard that Sallu had reportedly advised the director to not cast Sonakshi Sinha.
Ahem! Isn’t that shocking since Salman Khan himself had launched Sonakshi Sinha in Bollywood through his movie Dabangg? It’s being said that Sonakshi's on-screen image had made Sooraj Barjatya finalise her for the lead in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, but Salman thought otherwise.
Actually, the superstar wanted a fresh pair for the movie, and thus wanted Sooraj to sign an actress with whom he hasn’t shared screen space till now.
Though Salman Khan played Sonam Kapoor’s lover in her debut Saawariya, the two didn’t have much of screen time together in the movie.
In Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, they will finally play the lead pair. The movie also features Neil Nitin Mukesh, Armaan Kohli, Swara Bhaskar and Deepak Dobriyal in pivotal roles.
