Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" was not only a blockbuster hit in India, but the film shattered records in Pakistan as well.
Now, the actor is back to spell the magic at the box office with his next release "Prem Ratna Dhan Payo". The family drama, which marks the return of the character "Prem" on-screen after 15 years, will be released in India and Pakistan on 12 November, a day after Diwali.
"'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' celebrates togetherness in a family. We are happy that the film will be releasing in Pakistan and our neighbours will be able to enjoy the film," a spokesperson of the film told IANS.
Salman had earlier mentioned that he wants the movie to release in the neighbouring country as cinema is one 'powerful medium'.
"The medium is really powerful. We can do a lot with this medium... This is our tool and a lot of people appreciate good cinema and good characters. Everyone watches movies and it has a huge impact on people's life, and on society. I think there is no format better than cinema," Salman said.
The Sooraj Barjatya directorial, "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", is a family drama featuring Salman in double role. Sonam Kapoor is paired opposite Salman, while Neil Nitin Mukesh, Swara Bhaskar, Armaan Kohli and Anupam Kher are featured in important roles.
The advance booking of the film will start from 7 November in India, while in the international market the tickets of "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" have already started selling.
"Xclusiv: Bhai is coming as Prem this Diwali! Fox, Rajshri open advance bookings from 7 Nov across India plexes. Get set 4 huge opening #PRDP," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
