The actor also recalled the time when his mother helped him buy tickets of “Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!”
“Me and my sister wanted to watch ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!’ as soon as possible when it released in 1994. We were kids then. Mom made this happen by buying tickets in black at Rs.500 each for them otherwise it was house full show on first day’s first show,” he said.
He disclosed that it was big money then for their family when actual ticket rates were around Rs. 25.
“When we thanked mom for showing the movie, she said that I could pay her back when I might do a film with the banner under Rajshree Productions one day,” he reminisced.
“Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” also marks Salman’s return to a Barjatya film after 15 years.
The film is scheduled for release on November 12.
