Salman Khan will soon be seen in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, his comeback with director Sooraj Barjatya. He is all set to promote the film, which will release this Diwali in India and worldwide. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh. The film’s director Sooraj Barjatya was responsible for giving Salman his first hit in ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’. Sooraj was also responsible for ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ and it’s after 16 years that Sooraj and Salman are working together. In this interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Salman talks about a lot of things including working with Sooraj, working with Sonam Kapoor, his dream woman and many more.
Salman Khan talks about working with Sooraj Barjatya again
It’s been 14 years since I have worked with Sooraj (Barjatya), who always comes to me first whenever he has a script in mind. He wanted to create something that would surpass the benchmark set by Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Saath Saath Hain, and I was game for that.
Salman Khan talks about working with Sonam Kapoor
Not many would recall that I did a 15-20 minute cameo with Sonam in Saawariya. She’s a good person, hardworking, and a delight to work with. The best part you may ask? She doesn’t take much time in between costume changes!
Salman Khan on the word ‘love’
Love is old; it’s just another word for need. It’s just like saying you want something. It is really important to like the person, to know the person.
Salman on his dream woman
I don’t have any dream woman, I don’t think like that.
Salman on whether he has a girlfriend
Salman on whether he’s afraid of any woman
I am afraid that they have so much faith in me and I’m afraid to let them down, of the respect they have for me. I’m afraid of failing them.
Salman on whether he’s a romantic
I don’t know. Perhaps, I am the most difficult person to be with, I think it’s a proven fact now. Those things like pulling chairs, opening doors, walking together hand-in-hand, candle light dinners, chocolates, and flowers, oh, is that the idea of romance today? My idea is not trying to be somebody else.
Salman on whether he’s going to get married
I would definitely like to have a child, but with that comes the woman as well, and that is difficult. I am 50 now and knowing my past life, if I go for it, I need to be 100 per cent sure of the person I’m going to be with. Marry only when you think you are going to be responsible for someone’s happiness.
