Actress Sonam Kapoor says she gave the nod to Salman Khan starrer 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' instantly and is quite excited about the movie.

Salman Khan will be seen in a double role in Sooraj Barjatya's 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo'. Sonam Kapoor will be paired opposite the actor for the second time after 'Saawariya'.

"I am not nervous, I am very much excited about it. I am looking forward to work with Salman Khan. I have got an amazing role in the film. It was like the easiest decision that I took in my career. I wanted to work with Sooraj Barjatya, I have seen all his films several times," Sonam Kapoor said.

"I wanted the green outfit that Madhuri Dixit wore in 'Didi Tera Dewar Deewana' from 'Hum Aapke Hai Kaun'. It is a beautiful romantic film," she said.

Post 'Saawariya', Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor were in touch but the superstar has not seen her films.

"I will make sure he watches it (my films). I know he doesn't have the time as he has got more work to do than anybody else in the industry," Sonam Kapoor said.

The shooting for the film will start in June and it is set for Diwali 2015 release.

Besides, Sonam Kapoor will be seen in Salman Khan's brother Arbaaz Khan's home production film 'Doli Ki Dolly'. Apparently, Sonam Kapoor plays a runaway bride in the movie.

"It is like 'Runaway Bride' but not exactly. I am super excited and also super nervous about it because it is a difficult role, it is a complicated, complex character. It is a commercial film. I hope I can do justice to my role," she said.

Sonam Kapoor has already finished working on her next film 'Khubsoorat' remake -- and the makers plan to show a rough cut to veteran actress Rekha, who was part of the original 1980 hit film.

"As of now we have not shown her the rough cut of the film. But we will show it to her very soon. We showed her 'Aisha', we had kept a special screening for her," Sonam Kapoor said.

Sonam Kapoor clarified that there is no special appearance of Rekha in the film. "We are paying an ode to the Hrishikesh Mukherjee film," she added.

The remake is directed by Shashanka Ghosh and produced by Sonam Kapoor's father Anil Kapoor and sister Rhea.
