Salman Khan: Sonam perhaps better than Aishwarya, Madhuri
New Delhi: Superstar Salman Khan feels his much-younger "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" co-star Sonam Kapoor beats his previous leading ladies Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in terms of beauty and talent.

Salman's on screen pairing with Madhuri, Aishwarya, Bhagyashree and Sonali Bendre has been loved by the viewers. While he and Sonam worked in her debut film "Saawariya", this is the first time they are teaming up for a Rajshri movie, which marks the return of the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" star most lovable avatar Prem.
When asked if she is bogged by comparisons with Madhuri and Aishwarya, Sonam said, "I don't think I should be compared to them. They are amazing in whatever they do. I don't think I am nowhere close to being as beautiful as Aishwarya does or as talented as Madhuri.
"But having said that, I am Anil Kapoor's daughter. I have seen comparisons since I started my career. So the pressure does not bog me down, it just makes me work harder."
Salman added, "I think she is as beautiful and equally talented... Perhaps more."
The actor seemed to confirm the earlier reports, which claimed he found Sonam's work in the movie better than Madhuri's in "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!".
"Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", directed by Sooraj Barjatya, releases on November 12.
