In Sooraj Barjatya۪s Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo۪, Salman Khan will be returning to his ever-popular Prem۪ character. However, it has come to light that Sonakshi Sinha was the filmmaker۪s first choice as heroine for the film.

Barjatya had run his idea of casting Sinha in the role past Khan but Khan was more inclined towards a fresh pairing. That is when Sonam Kapoor ended up bagging the project. No doubt the audiences are looking forward to seeing the two together on the big screen for the first time.

Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo۪ will see Khan in a double role and also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Armaan Kohli.
