is a happy girl. She has just bagged the role of Salman Khan’s younger sister in Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Apparently, Salman’s sister Alvira Agnihotri recommended Swara for the role.

Swara says, "Alvira saw Raanjhanaa (2013) and liked my work. We’ve also known each other for some time. I had hosted a book launch for a common friend where Helen ma’am was the chief guest. Alvira and Atul (Agnihotri, husband) had liked the compering. I am grateful for this recommendation."

Swara will start shooting for the film in July. "My part is highly performance- oriented and different from anything I’ve done so far. I’m readying myself for the challenge. I hope I can live up to Sooraj sir’s expectations. Meanwhile, my friends and relatives have already begun requesting me for autographs from Salman Khan," says Swara.

The film also stars Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepak Dobriyal. "I’m also excited to be working with them," says Swara.
