It has truly been a closely guarded secret! Sooraj Barjatya, who has reunited with Salman Khan for his upcoming film 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' is paying his homage to the cult classic Mughal-e-Azam in his movie.
The iconic director known for his blockbusters like 'Maine Pyar Kiya', 'Hum Apke Hain Kaun', has constructed a Sheesh Mahal for the film in Karjat. It is similar to the one that was constructed for Dilip Kumar- Madhubala starrer 'Mughal-e-Azam' and plays a very integral part of the film.
Sooraj Barjatya says, "I have always been inspired, awed and overwhelmed by 'Mughal-e-Azam'- a film that has always fueled my imagination as a writer and director. Everything about this film is iconic and we have indeed tried to pay homage to this cult classic in our film by constructing the Sheesh Mahal. It's our tribute to the film that shaped the Indian film industry in many ways. Sheesh Mahal plays a very intrinsic role in the plot of the film. How Salman's story and the Sheesh Mahal is also connected will be revealed when the film releases on November 12."
Directed by Sooraj Barjatya and produced by Rajshri Entertainment, ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ also stars Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Swara Bhaskar and Anupam Kher. It is slated to release on 12th November 2015.
