Salman Khan to introduce his character 'Prem' with "Prem Leela" song in "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo"PR Handout

Salman Khan's "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" will release in three weeks, but the hype has already reached its peak.

Salman created records with "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", which was released in July this year, and with "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" he will repeat the box office success. And Salman's film is expected to break the records of Shah Rukh Khan's "Happy New Year".

Shah Rukh's film "Happy New Year" a day-after Diwali and it created records. The film still holds the record of the highest opener for Bollywood film with Rs 44.97 crore.

And now Salman's "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" is set to release on the same day.

"Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" is one of the most awaited films of 2015 as it marks the return of the famous actor-director jodi, Salman-Sooraj Barjatya. The film's trailer became one of the most watched videos in India this year and now "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" songs are creating the right buzz.

If all goes well, then, "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" should get the highest opening day box office collection, breaking the records of "Happy New Year".

Last year, actor Aditya Pancholi, who is a close friend of Salman, predicted that "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" would beat the records of "Happy New Year".

"It's going to be the season of the Khans. Shah Rukh's Happy New Year is breaking all records. And the records of Happy New Year would be broken by Aamir Khan's PK in December. But Salman'sPrem Ratan Dhan Payo would break the records of both the earlier record-breakers," Aditya told Subhash K Jha in 2014.

"Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", directed by Sooraj Barjatya, will be released worldwide this Diwali. This will be Salman's second film of the year after "Bajrangi Bhaijaan".

The family action drama features Salman, Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Swara Bhaskar, Armaan Kohli and Anupam Kher in key roles.
