Sooraj Barjatya, the filmmaker responsible for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, has said that he has made PRDP especially for Salman Khan. He mentioned that he wanted to portray the superstar as someone who can change people. Salman will be seen working with Barjatya after 16 long years.
“This film is only for him (Salman). I wanted to make people idolise him… a film, where he can change people. Even though youngsters go less for my movie, but if a youngster says he wants to show it to his mother, grandmother, in-laws, that is the biggest return and victory for me,” the veteran filmmaker said.
He also mentioned that the movie will bring back the character of Prem. “As a director, it’s only four days left, so I am the most nervous here. Day before when the movie got over, I calculated the budget and I was shocked, that unless it becomes the biggest hit then… It’s Diwali, whether you watch the film or not, go to your villages and meet those whom you haven’t met in years. That’s the whole spirit…,” he added.
Salman, in his playful style, interrupted Barjatya and said, “You should not say these things seriously because last time I said this I regretted. Jaaneman and Don were released on the same day. I went to promote Don and said ‘first watch Don’ so everyone saw that and no one saw…”
He also added, “Go to your village, meet family and take them to watch the film too.”
