Actor Anil Kapoor is quite excited about his daughter Sonam Kapoor’s upcoming film “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” with superstar Salman Khan and says the two make a good couple on screen.
“It’s a Sooraj Barjatya film so there is excitement. I am excited to see it. He is a great director, he has made some path-breaking films. He has changed the way films are made in India. He has huge fans,” Kapoor told PTI in an interview here.
“People like Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar are completely inspired by his (Barjatya’s) kind of filmmaking. He changed the way marriages are celebrated in India. He got the whole value, family system back which is the fabric of India. He has contributed a lot to this country,” Kapoor said.
“Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, the family drama directed by Sooraj Barjatya, has Salman in a double role. It is one of the most awaited films of the year considering that Barjatya and Salman have earlier given blockbusters together and they are coming back together after a very long time.
Sonam and Salman had earlier shared screen space in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Sawaariya”.
“She was opposite Ranbir Kapoor (in “Sawaariya”). I think both (Salman and Sonam) are really good looking people… I think they look great together. I hope people like them,” the 58-year old actor said.
“Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, also starring Neil Nitin Mukesh and Swara Bhaskar, is slated to release on November 12.
