‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ will bring back my innocence: Salman
New Delhi: After showcasing his “Dabangg” avatar and going rogue in “Ek Tha Tiger”, superstar Salman Khan says he is on a mission to search for his “innocence and sincerity” through his next two release — “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” and “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”. “I didn’t prepare for the film (‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’) at all… This movie needed sincerity and innocence which I had lost somewhere.
So, I have tried to bring back my sincerity and innocence with both my films — ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’,” Salman told reporters during a promotional visit for “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” here on Tuesday. Along with Salman, director Kabir Khan, actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, singers Mika Singh, Adnan Sami, Jubin Nautiyal and Amar Butala, CEO of Salman Khan Films were also present at the press conference.
The actor has entertained film-goers by channeling rough and brawny characters on the silver screen through a slew of films be it “Wanted’, “Dabangg”, “Ek Tha Tiger” or “Kick”. “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” also runs high on action and emotional quotient. It is a story about a man discovering love during a journey from India to Pakistan as he takes a dumb and mute girl back to her country.
The film will hit the screens on Friday. Salman is also caught up with Sooraj Barjatya’s family entertainer “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, which stars Sonam Kapoor. The actor will be seen revisiting his popular cinema name ‘Prem’ in the film, which is special for many reasons. It also marks Salman’s return to a Barjatya film after 15 years — after the 1999 movie “Hum Saath-Saath Hain”.
