Actress Sonam Kapoor, who has been signed to play the female lead opposite Salman Khan in Sooraj Barjatya's upcoming movie ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, said that she is looking forward to working with Salman Khan after working together in ‘Saawariya’.
“I am not nervous, I am very much excited about it. I am looking forward to working with Salman. I have got an amazing role in the film. It was the easiest decision that I took in my career. I wanted to work with Sooraj Barjatya, I have seen all his films several times," Sonam told PTI.
"I wanted the green outfit that Madhuri Dixit wore in 'Didi Tera Dewar Deewana' from 'Hum Aapke Hai Kaun'. It is a beautiful romantic film," she added.
Though Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor have been in touch with each other after working together he hasn’t seen any of Sonam Kapoor’s movies.
“I will make sure he watches my films. I know he doesn't have the time as he has got more work to do than anybody else in the industry," Sonam said.
Salman Khan will play a double role in the movie. The shooting for the film will start in June and it is set for release on Diwali 2015.
Other than ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, Sonam Kapoor will also be seen in Salman Khan’s brother Arbaaz Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Dolly Ki Doli’. Apparently, Sonam plays a runaway bride in the movie.
“It is like Runaway Bride but not exactly. I am super excited and also super nervous about it because it is a difficult role, it is a complicated, complex character. It is a commercial film. I hope I can do justice to my role," she said.
The actress has already wrapped up the shooting of her next film - a remake of ‘Khubsoorat’ - and the makers plan to show a rough cut to veteran actress Rekha, who was a part of the original 1980 hit film.
"As of now we have not shown her the rough cut of the film. But we will show it to her very soon. We showed her ‘Aisha’, we had kept a special screening for her," Sonam said.
Sonam clarified that there is no special appearance of Rekha in the film. "We are paying an ode to the Hrishikesh Mukherjee film," she concluded.
