With big names like Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Preity Zinta, and Sohail Khan headlining the promos, one might be excused for believing Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna to be the work of an experienced pro. However, Prem Soni is in fact making his first outing as a director with the film. So how did Prem get so lucky as to land such huge stars for his debut?
The newbie director shares the secret: “Without Salman Khan, my film would have never taken off.”
And how did Style-Bhai help him out? “I met Salman one day and narrated the script to him. He really liked it and told me that he was game for it. It is Salman who should be credited for everything. He made me meet his brother Sohail Khan quickly who immediately took on the movie to produce. Thus, Salman found me a producer too, and that’s how the film started rolling… After that Kareena Kapoor and Preity Zinta came on board. So, with names like Salman, Kareena, Sohail, and Preity attached to the film, a big production house like UTV also agreed to support us. I can’t find words to thank Salman for making it happen for me.”
It’s a good thing Salman was there for Prem, since before the actor lent a hand the script collected dust for close to two years. However, those eager to see Sallu and Bebo share the screen won’t have to wait nearly as long. Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna is expected to hit theatre floors on 16 October.
