The actor suggested that Arbaaz name his character Prem in his upcoming film 'Prem The Game', where he plays the lead.
'Earlier, Arbaaz's character was called by a different name. But Salman suggested that he call his character Prem. So, Arbaaz changed his name to 'Prem',' said a source close to the actor.
Salman's character in 1989 hit 'Maine Pyar Kiya' was called Prem and the actor never looked back since then. He later went on to do many films with the same character name as he considered the name lucky. Some of these movies were 'Hum Saath-Saath Hain', 'Biwi No.1' and 'Chal Mere Bhai', among others.
