Just like, Bollywood megastars Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan are synonymous with their onscreen name sof Vijay and Raj respectively, actor Salman Khan too, has been known for adapting the name of Prem in as many as fifteen movies. The practice of naming Salman as Prem which started with Sooraj Barjatya’s movie ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’, has still remained continued with his upcoming movie ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, which has Salman essaying the character of Prem for the nth time.
Salman has been named Prem in movies like ‘Judwaa’, ‘Biwi No. 1’, ‘Andaz Apna Apna’, ‘No Entry’, ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’, ‘Partner’ and ‘Ready’. The name has always guaranteed box-office successes of his movies for Salman. This is one of the reasons why, Sooraj was keen on naming the actor Prem once again for his new movie.
Salman and Sooraj, who last worked in ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’, will be joining hands after a long gap of fifteen years. ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ is slated to release during coming Diwali.
