These things come together in the filmmaker’s latest and most lavish project, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo alright. From the costumes to the leading man, there’s no doubt that PRDP is as Rajshri as a film can get. That being said, there are some new and very exciting additions to Barjatya’s world this time around. The one we’re looking forward to the most? Seeing him work with actors who have never starred in a Rajshri film before.Sonam Kapoor
Sonam Kapoor has accomplished more in eight years than most people do in their lifetimes. The one box that the actress hadn’t checked on her bucket list though was starring in a Rajshri film. And now, well, check!Swara Bhaskar
Swara Bhaskar, who plays Prem‘s sister Chandrika, brings the most important element to PRDP – the emotion. Though it might seem like Chandrika is an easy role to play, it was actually the part that took the longest to cast. We’re sure Swara will do justice to her character.
Neil Nitin Mukesh
Neil Nitin Mukesh plays Ajay Singh, the character that has been described as a "rebel with a cause". Though playing Salman’s angsty young brother couldn’t have been easy, there was been no better choice than Neil, who has been raking in the awards since his debut!
When you see the snippet of Sanjay Mishra in his character’s Ramleela costume, it becomes glaringly obvious why he was cast in the role. The actor plays the owner of a Ramleela production, whose stinginess comes back to bite him in the ass.
Deepak Dobriyal, whose comic timing won us over in Tanu Weds Manu, is all set to provide the laughs in PRDP. He plays a "pagal actor", who immerses himself in every role he plays. The glimpses of him we’ve seen so far have piqued our interest, and we know he’ll be a delight in this film too.
Guess who’s back? Armaan Kohli plays Chirag, an evil character whose greed gets the best of him. The ‘Jaani Dushman star’ seems like the perfect choice to play the character. After all, no one can make bad look as good as him.
