When Salman asked not to be cast opposite Sonakshi!

He might have made her career shine too bright, but Salman Khan had recently suggested the director of his film not to cast Sonakshi Sinha opposite him.Reason being, that Salman wanted to create a fresh and never seen before Jodi.


We are talking about Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which has Salman Khan in it. We learnt that Sooraj was too keen on casting Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role but it was Salman who said there should an actress with him he hasn’t been paired. Sallu Mia did so because he felt that the audiences will see a new pairing on screen and that would be something new to look forward too. Hence Sonam Kapoor was cast.

After having worked with Sona in Dabangg and Dabangg 2, and a few appearances here and there, Salman doesn’t wish to share screen space with her. Is there something more to it? We can’t just help, but wonder.

But going by Salman’s reasons, about the fresh pairing funda, it has actually worked in the favor of the film. Sonam and Salman coming together for the first time have created a lot of ripples. The film has Sallu Mia in double role and also stars Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Swara Bhaskar, Armaan Kohli, Anupam Kher in pivotal roles.
