It is being called one of the worst titles for a film. But a report in tabloid Mid-Day says Salman Khan’s upcoming film with his Maine Pyaar Kiya director Sooraj Barjatya will be called Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
Salman has been called ‘Prem’ in all of his Rajshri movies - Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Hum Saath Saath Hain. In fact, Prem is considered to be Rajshri’s lucky mascot and even the film that didn’t feature Salman – Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon – had the name in the title and two Prems in it, Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan.
Though Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon, released way back in 2003 was a resounding flop Sooraj Barjatya still loves Prem. Which is why he probably decided to bring back his original Prem, Salman, back. The shooting of the new film will commence from May and about 70 per cent of the film is going to be shot in ND Studios, Karjat. The cast includes Sonam Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Swara Bhaskar. The film is likely to release on Diwali 2015.
