MUMBAI: Neil Nitin Mukesh and his sister wanted to watch “Hum Aapke Hain Koun!” as soon as possible when it released in 1994 when they were kids, and Neil was 12. So their mother made this happen by buying tickets in black at Rs. 500 each for the otherwise ‘Housefull’ first day’s first show — and that was big money then for their family; the actual ticket rates must have been around Rs. 25! As she went with them for the movie, little Neil was a shade regretful later, and Mom consoled him by saying that maybe he could pay her back when he did a film with the banner one day!

Today, as “Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo” nears its release, the incredible thing is that Neil’s mother’s statement has come true! The film is also directed by Sooraj Barjatya, who had directed that epic also starring Salman Khan, who heads the cast of this film as well. And Neil crows that when he signed the film, his mother was the first to know!

Incidentally, his grandfather Mukesh had sung for the banner in “Uphaar” (1972) and his father Nitin Mukesh in “Dard-E-Dil” in the 1980s.
