He had been Sooraj Barjatya’s muse for long, when Shahid Kapoor took away the mantle and reprised the ever famous Prem in the movie ‘Vivaah’. But now the original Prem is back.
Yes! Salman Khan is back in his shy, coy avatar as Prem in the movie ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ co-starring Sonam Kapoor. We shared the first look of the movie recently but what caught our attention was the picture posted by the superstar himself on his Facebook page.
The picture shows a demure Salman, wearing a torn Kurta and feeding a monkey. We are not sure whether the monkey-feeding is a part of a scene from the movie, but what we do know is Salman rocks the portrayal of Prem, as usual.
Salman Khan’s last outing as Prem was back in 1998 when he played the role in the hit movie ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’. Then he went ahead and joined the action bandwagon and did movies like ‘Wanted’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, ‘Kick’ and ‘Dabangg’.
On second thoughts, the look, which Salman posted, can be from his other upcoming movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ co-starring Kareena Kapoor too. Whatever be it, the look is certainly a far cry from the kind of roles Salman has been doing lately. It does remain to be seen whether the ‘Chulbul Pandey’ will again be accepted as ‘Prem’ or ‘Bhaijaan’.
