About Prem Ratan Dhan Payo Movie:

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is a Hindi romantic family drama film written and directed by Sooraj Barjatya. Produced by Rajshri Productions, it stars Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor. Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar, Deepak Dobriyal, and Aashika Bhatia play supporting roles.

It was announced in June 2013 by Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya and pre-production work of the film began in January 2014 until June 2014.

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is the fourth collaboration between Sooraj R. Barjatya and Salman Khan after their previous films Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (1994), and Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999), and it is the second collaboration between Salman Khan and Sanom Kapoor after Saawariya (2007).

Initially, Anushka Sharma, Sonakshi Sinha, Kareena Kapoor, Daisy Shah and Deepika Padukone were rumoured to play leading ladies and they turned down the offer. Finally, Sonam Kapoor was signed and to play a leading lady in this film.

It was titled Bade Bhaiya and later changed to Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, an inspired of mythological Ram Ratan Dhan Payo.

Filming began after 1000 days of preparation on 26 June 2014 and wrapped on 2 September 2015 after 200 days of shoot.

It was shot in Rajkot, Gondal, Udaipur, Athirapally Falls and Mumbai. It was shot at several extravagant locations across India. From grand sets to elaborate costumes, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was undeniably a visual delight for all the viewers.

The makers of the film released a ‘behind-the-scene’ video from the film titled ‘Larger Than Life’, wherein they revealed that the royal palace of Pritampur in the film is ‘one of the biggest sets ever made’ which was spread around 100,000 sq. feet. Each actor from the film is also heard speaking about the lavish scale of the film with each shot being ‘grand’. Production Designer Nitin Chandrakant Desai said that “An attempt to give life to each element has been made.

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was dubbed and released in Tamil as Meimarandhen Paaraayo (See, I’ve lost myself) and Telugu as Prema Leela (Love games).

The core plot of the film is reportedly inspired by the 2012 South Korean film Masquerade, which was itself loosely based on the 1894 novel The Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope.

The music rights of the film were sold to T-Series for ₹17 crore (US$2.1 million), making it the most expensive music rights deal in the Bollywood film industry at the time.

An official game titled “Prem Game”, based on this film has been released by Hungama Digital Services, for Android mobile phone users.

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was released worldwide on 12 November 2015 during Diwali season. It opened to an extremely positive reception with praise for Khan’s performance, background, visual effects, story, screenplay and direction. With a worldwide gross of ₹432 crore, it is the second-highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2015 and the 20th-highest-grossing Indian film.
