Salman recreates ‘Aishwarya moment’ in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ poster

The makers of Salman Khana and Sonam Kapoor starrer classic romance ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ has released a new poster of the film. The poster has Salman’s character Prem playfully pulling the braided hair of Sonam, who plays princess Maithali.

Salman is seen wearing a traditional sherwani, while Sonam looks every bit the princess in a gorgeous bright pink embellished lehenga. The actors make a lovely on-screen couple.

The new poster is a reminiscent of an iconic moment from Salman’s 1999 blockbuster film ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film has a song ‘Aankhon Ki Gustakhiyaan’ which has a similar scene where Salman is holding Aishwarya Rai’s long plait lovingly.

The first poster of ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ was unveiIed on Twitter on September 30. It appears that the film is trying to recreate the moments from Bhansali’s epic romance. Though Salman and Sonam look great as a couple in the movie, the chemistry between the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ actor and Aishwarya in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ is matchless.

‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ is the most ambitious project of Sooraj Barjatya, who has earlier directed Salman in films like ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’, ‘Hum Aapke Hai Koun...!’ and ‘Hum Saath Saath Hai’. The film reunites Sooraj and Salman after a long gap of almost 16 years. Salman too will be seen in his romantic avatar of Prem after four years.

The film produced under the banner of Rajshri Productions also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar and Deepak Dobriyal among others. It is set to release within a month’s time on November 12 on the occasion of Diwali.
