Sonam Kapoor is a first generation Bollywood star kid. Given that she has grown up on the pedigree, the fact that Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was offered to her stands as a big deal for the girl.
In an interview to Koimoi ahead of her upcoming film Khoobsurat, the actress told us her nascent feeling at being offered Sooraj Barjatya’s film opposite Salman Khan. The actress said, “Working with Sooraj-ji and Salman is the weirdest thing because I have grown up watching Prem (Salman’s character) and it’s like, ‘Oh my God! Prem is romancing me! As a kid, I have watched Maine Pyaar Kiya and Hum Apke Hain Koun and Hum Saath Saath Hain. I needed to often pinch myself to believe!”
Talking about her co-actor with whom she has previously worked in her debut film Saawariya too, she had only kind words to say. The actress told us, “I have never seen him being nasty to anyone or rude to anybody. He has immense respect for women and he is extremely hardworking. He is always on time, always improvising. He is one of the best actors I have ever worked with. He is always trying to do something different. It’s been seven years since I worked with him. I have known him all my life, but he is amazing. He is a professional; he has got the highest amount of IQ.”
The film’s first schedule was wrapped up in Karjat. The actress is currently promoting Shashank Ghosh’s Khoobsurat and will then get back to working on the Sooraj Barjatya film.
