Mumbai, Oct 21 (IANS) Even as superstar Salman Khan’s “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” continues to create immense hype ahead of its release, a new song titled “Jalte diye” from the forthcoming film will mesmerise viewers with over 7,000 diyas (earthen lamps) picturised in the sequence.

The film is set to release on November 12, a day after the festival of lights – Diwali.
