Sonam Kapoor reveals that the first schedule of Sooraj Barjatya’s ambitious film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has just been completed and she is overwhelmed at being teamed up with Salman Khan once again after Saawariya (2007).
“I worked with him seven years back … it’s not been that long,” Sonam insists, before gushing, “I have known Salman Khan all my life but he is amazing. He has the highest amount of EQ (Emotional Quotient) — I have never seen him being nasty to anyone. He has immense respect for women. And of course as an actor, he is one of the best actors I have worked with – he is always on time, always improvising, always trying to do something different.”
The Sooraj-Salman team has previously delivered three blockbusters – Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Hum Saath Saath Hain – in all of which Salman was called Prem. With her characteristic laugh, Sonam says, “I have grown up on these films so working with Soorajji and Salman is weird — it’s like Prem is now romancing me!”
