Salman Khan fans have got every reason to be on cloud nine this year. After all, it’s not every year that their hero is seen on the silver screen two times. It’s one film a year as far as Salman is concerned … at least that’s been the trend for a few years now.

However, 2015 is different. First up, Salman will be in the theatres on Eid, with Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. This film will see the superstar reuniting with Kareena Kapoor Khan after four years. The last time the two were seen together on the silver screen was in 2011, when Bodyguard had released.
After Eid, Salman will be seen setting the box office on fire this Diwali, too. The release date of Salman’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has just been locked, and November 12 it is. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the news:
#PremRatanDhanPayo releases on 12th November. A clear 4-day weekend for the Salman Khan starrer.

While Bajrangi Bhaijaan in the Eid week will have Salman enjoying a near-uninhibited run with no major release during that time, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will have a clean four-day weekend. Diwali is on November 11, and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will be in the theatres the next day, a Thursday. As of now, the weekend following the Diwali one is supposedly earmarked for the release of Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh’s Bajirao Mastani.
In Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Salman is getting back to his favourite on-screen moniker Prem. After the actor’s 1989 Maine Pyar Kiya, he was seen in a couple of other films as Prem. Salman sports a moustachioed look in this film, and will be paired with Sonam Kapoor. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is currently in the filming stage.
