After weeks of deliberation Sooraj Barjatya has agreed to cut some of the precious footage from his Diwali release Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

According to sources close to the project, the film’s length is now down by 30 mins from the original 3 hours 20 mins. However, the running time of PRDP still stands at 7 minutes more than Salman’s previous release Bajrangi Bhaijaan which was 2 hours 43 minutes long.

Taken together, the two Salman Khan starrers this year are of a longer duration than all the other films of the other A-list actors this year.

Sales are expected to get hit by the inordinate running time. Many feel Ajay Devgn’s Drishyam released earlier this year would have performed much better if it had not been nearly three hours in length.

On the other hand, who cares how long a film is as long as Salman Khan is in it?

Trade expert Atul Mohan thinks the length of the film to be no problem at all. “Everybody wants more and more of Salman Khan. Such is his magic and power. Coming with Sooraj Barjatya after a long time the magic is bound to cast its potent spell on the box office.”

Atul also feels family drama need to take their time to make their point. “A larger than life family drama can never be enjoyed within a smaller time-frame. Family movies are made in very very less numbers now. They bring that much-needed change from our selfie-styled living in present times.”

      I agree with Mr. Mohan when it comes to a Salman Khan movie which is always very entertaining regardless of genre one never gets enough of watching him on screen. Whenever I watch his movies I get the impression that he really enjoys himself when making the film and it becomes evident when you watch him perform his part, it is a very natural and he never overacts. Love all his films bar none.
