I play a typical naughty Rajshri Prem in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, says Salman Khan

Salman Khan is one actor who is known to improvise on the spot while shooting for his films. Very few people know that the dialogue 'Swagat Nai Karoge Aap Hamara' in Dabangg 2 was actually a part of Salman Khan's improvisation; it was never a part of the script.

In an interview, speaking about the amount of improvisation he had put in for the character of Prem in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Salman Khan says,

"Whenever you improvise in a film with David Dhawan, you need to improvise things in David Dhawan style or when you improvise in a film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali you need to do it his way. With Sooraj, there is a lot of fun because he already comes in with a lot of preparation and explains the entire situation.

The only aspect wherein I had to improvise is how to make Prem a little naughty in the typical Rajshri zone and that is difficult. Prem in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is naughtier than all other films made by Sooraj Barjatya.

The humour in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is not exactly Sooraj Barjatya kind of humour but it is slightly in the Salman Khan zone. The beauty of PRDP is that the comedy suddenly shifts into romance or drama after which Sooraj suddenly pulls back in to the 'aakhon ki sharam' and 'dignity' zone."

Not much is known about the plot of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. On being asked to speak about the intent to make the magnum opus, Salman Khan says,

"Let me explain. You are not supposed to do something and there is no one around where in you are tempted to do the thing which you are not supposed to do. So who will stop you? It has to be you yourself and that is the biggest task in human life.

It is like; your boss has asked you to write an article which you don't agree with. You are not comfortable writing it, but you have to because your boss has asked you to. If you tell him clearly, "I am not going to write it", he won't come back to you. You need to stop the problems in the first phase, to avoid any complications. That is what Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is all about.

We have the entire set up around brother and sister who don't get along and that is because of some misunderstanding. Sooraj has handled this situation with a lot of romance and humour and trust me, that is am really difficult. Sooraj has just written a film about a brother and sister, but the message automatically comes out with the writing.

When you come out of the theatre, you will say "Brothers and sisters should not fight and I should be loyal to my girlfriend." This film will make you a better person."

Starring Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Anupam Kher, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo releases on 12 November 2015.
