As far as Salman bhai (Salman Khan) is concerned, he is like my elder brother. Words are not enough to praise him. He is a great human being... he is so helpful and very supportive," said Neil
"Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" is scheduled for release at Diwali 2015. It marks the reunion of Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya as director after almost 15 years.
