MUMBAI: Ask him to compare his upcoming movie ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’s co-star Sonam Kapoor with his previous co-actresses Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan says that he feels the young actress is equally talented, or perhaps more.
Salman and Sonam were in New Delhi on Wednesday (November 5) to their movie, when they were asked this question.
“I don’t think I should be compared to them. They are amazing in whatever they do. I don’t think I am nowhere close to being as beautiful as Aishwarya or as talented as Madhuri,” Sonam Kapoor told reporters.
“But having said that, I am Anil Kapoor’s daughter. I have seen comparisons since I started my career. So the pressure does not bog me down, it just makes me work harder,” the fashionista added.
Salman Khan was quick enough to add to Sonam’s reply, “I think she is as beautiful and equally talented. Perhaps more.”
The addition left Sonam Kapoor blushing and the scribes trusting the reports that claimed that Salman had called Sonam better than Madhuri in ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun!’.
The chemisrty between the lead pair forced one of the reporters to ask Sonam how difficult it was to romance the superstar onscreen.
Sonam, however, seemed a little less perturbed with the question. “It was very easy for me to romance him. The easiest, I would say,” she said.
Salman chipped in and said, “It was difficult for me though. Don’t know about her.”
Romance forms the mainstay of this Sooraj Barjatya directorial, along with the family values that are in anyway a big part of his films.
Talking about the movie, Salman Khan said, “‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ is one of the most beautiful movies I have done till now. It’s family oriented. And it shows how a family despite all the disputes, problems comes together. It’s beautiful.”
“I assure each one of you, you’d come out laughing or crying happy tears after watching the movie,” added Salman.
When asked about who he thinks is perfect to play Prem, of course after him, Salman Khan said, “I think Sooraj is the perfect choice for Prem. He is Prem.” ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ is all set to release on November 12.
