Everybody knows I am a limited performer: Salman Khan

In a emotion-filled press conference during the launch of the trailer of his upcoming film ‘Tubelight’, Bollywood megastar Salman Khan said his acting capabilities are limited, something which – he said – everyone knows. But having his real-life brother, Sohail Khan, in the film helped him emote better in the film.

“I am a limited performer and everybody knows that, but because Sohail was playing my brother, maybe that’s why I was feeling very emotional… The film was an emotional journey and I felt emotionally drained after shooting some of the scenes that narrate that my brother is no more..

“In fact, during the dubbing of the film also, being a grown up man, my tears were coming up… it was really bad! And coming from us (Pathans) is really bad” he said.

The actor also narrated a story when his family visited him in jail.

“When I was in jail, one day my mother, father and one of my uncles came to see me there, and seeing my condition, my uncle started crying. So my father told him, ‘kaise Pathan ho yaar tum, roh rahe ho’” Salman said.

The actor is gearing up for what is being touted as his best and most emotional performance to date. While Salman’s on-screen acting histrionics has always been under-rated, the actor has delivered several top-notch performances in films like ‘Andaz Apna Apna’, ‘Hum Aapke Hai Kaun’, ‘Tere Naam’ and even in the more recent films like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
