Salman Khan further added, ''We didn't know what the future held for us. But with Prem Ratan..., Sooraj has made his most beautiful film. In the last few days of shooting, Sooraj kept wishing for rain, or something else to happen so that he could go on for another day even though that costs money. That the whole journey was getting over, made him emotional. So I told him, start the next one.''
At the recent promotions of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sonam said that she is not as beautiful as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. To which Salman replied, 'Sonam is as beautiful and as talented."
Salman Khan told Indian Express, ''Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is a beautiful love story made on a big scale. We've shot at forts and palaces, and even had a sheesh mahal set.''
Salman Khan further added, '' As far as the central character is concerned, I'd say there's a Prem in all of us. I hope that people go with their whole families for it.''
''Like a picnic, or how in villages people go to fairs packed together in trucks. I hope it's on that level because it's a very simple, funny and emotional film,'' he added.
