Apparently, Salman Khan adviced Barjatya against the decision to cast Sonakshi opposite him
Sonakshi Sinha has been always applauded for her rustic Indian charm and that was the major reason why Sooraj Barjatya had finalised her as the leading lady in his next, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo starring Salman Khan. But something made Sooraj change his mind and opt for Sonam Kapoor instead.
That something was a word of caution from our Dabangg Salman Khan. Although Sooraj was keen on casting Sonakshi, Salman insisted on having someone else on board which would rather be a fresh pairing for the industry. Hence Sonam came on board!
Although Salman and Sonam would definitely look sizzling together, we are rather sad for Sonakshi who lost out on such a plump project, that too because of the person who gave her the first acting break.
