The dashing actor who wrapped up the shoot of the film, was all present at a suburban studio in Mumbai following a photoshoot for a brand-new PETA India campaign.
The actor over there, post his shoot interacted with media.
During the interactions he was asked about his work experience with Sooraj and Salman Khan in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’.
Neil said, “The shooting for ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, has finally finished. I’m very excited about the same, it’s indeed a huge film releasing in November on the eve of Diwali. I feel extremely lucky that I got this wonderful opportunity to work with Sooraj and Salman, that too together in the same film.”
The actor also shared that apart from him, his mother’s wish too has come true with ‘PRDP’, as it has been her wish for Neil to work with Sooraj and Salman.
As Neil said, “I was very young when me, my mom and my sister had went to catch up with Sooraj’s superhit film ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun….!’ . The film when released was instantly declared as a huge hit all over. And I remember we were very unfortunate to get any tickets, as theatres were running housefull when we went to catch the film. But then, when we went to a theater, we met this individual who was offering the film tickets to us, but he was charging Rs. 500 per ticket, this incidence happened in 1994. As we know that during that time 500 was indeed a huge amount, that too per ticket. My mom replied to that person that it won’t be possible, as its too pricey for us to purchase it .”
“We (Neil and his sister) were very upset and were all ready to go back home, but then all of a sudden my mom asked us lets purchase the tickets and watch the film. After watching the film, me and my sister, we both thanked our mom, in reply she said to me that it’s my wish for you that one day you work with Sooraj and Salman. And now finally after 21 years her dream has come true. And I truly feel lucky and blessed following the same. ” added the actor.
Talking about ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, apart from Salman and Neil, the film also stars Sonam Kapoor.
The film has been in talks all over from a very long time, and is one of the big upcoming releases of the year in Bollywood .
