Salman Khan starrer "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" will be a Diwali treat for his fans.

As planned earlier, the film will indeed be released during Diwali, but instead of 11 November, the Sooraj Barjatya directorial will hit theatres on 12 November.

With the announcement of the release date, Salman is set to recreate the magic of Barjatya's favourite character "Prem" after 13 years on the silver screen.

Several pictures from the sets have already made their way to the Internet, increasing the curiosity of fans.

Recently, Salman's sister Arpita shared photos of his brother from the film's sets. In one of the pictures, he is seen sporting a moustache and holding a sword, indicating the actor was rehearsing his scenes as a prince in his palace.

Being produced by Rajshri Productions, the film has the actor play a double role – one as a common man and the other as a prince – and Sonam will be seen as a princess.

The flick will also feature Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepak Dobriyal in important roles.

Although it's a family drama, sources say "PRDP" will be different from its predecessors.

Currently, the "Dabangg" actor is busy promoting his upcoming flick "Bajrangi Bhaijaan." The Kabir Khan directorial, which also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, is slated to release on 17 July.

Salman has also revealed the release date of another project for next year – Ali Abbas Zafar directed "Sultan". It will hit theatres on Eid 2016.

To be produced by Yash Raj Films, the Salman Khan starrer's movie will coincide with the release of Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees" next year.
