Salman Khan is my godfather’ – Prem Soni
Debutant director Prem Soni has claimed that Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor despite their age difference make an ‘adorable’ couple on screen. Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor are coming together in Prem Soni’s forthcoming flick, ’Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna’.
Prem Soni said, "The age difference between Salman and Kareena was never a consideration. They make an absolutely adorable couple and complement each other on screen."
The director added, "They look good together in the film as there are no loud moments between them. The film has romantic instances here and there, but it has a very subtle treatment. There are cute scenes in the film and both of them have carried them really well."
Newcomer, Prem Soni has claimed that he considers Salman Khan his ‘Godfather’.
"I had written the script and then fixed an appointment with Salman. His reaction after the narration was overwhelming. All he said was, 'I'm doing it'. That's how the project began. Salman is indeed my godfather in the industry as he is the one who has given me a break,” Prem Soni said.
The director has admitted that it was easy for him to convince Kareena Kapoor for the film.
"I went for the script narration to Kareena in Goa where she was shooting 'Golmaal Returns'. She loved the role and when I told her that Salman is doing the film, she said - 'why would I say no to Salman?’ She instantly agreed. Kareena is such a delight to work with. She is among the finest actors these days. She is so effervescent and so dedicated as an actor," he said.
‘Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna’ will hit the screens on October 16, the same day as much-awaited action flick ‘Blue’ and comedy ‘All The Best’ are releasing. But Prem Soni said that he is calm and has confidence on his film.
"I have no apprehensions. It takes a lot of energy for every filmmaker to make a movie. So there are no hard feelings for anyone. May the best win because they are all of different genres and have their own set of audiences," he said.
