I am doing a romantic film soon, action is tough: Salman Khan

In an exclusive interview, Salman Khan talks about his health, future film and the record breaking collections of Ek Tha Tiger!

On his health and why he can’t make excuses

I am the Tiger, I can’t make excuses like ‘I am unwell, I can’t do it. I have done all the things like running, beating, falling, jumping from one place to another.. if you are physically fit, you can perhaps do all this. But it takes a lot of toll on your body as you are doing the same thing the whole day.

On his future plans

I am doing a romantic film soon (Sooraj Barjatya’s next). Action is very tough.. One has to get up at odd hours, like early morning, to do action films, work till late night, do action in worst conditions like in hot weather, fighting on rooftops and dirty places. It is difficult.

On the record breaking collections of Ek Tha Tiger

The exact collection starts from single screens and multiplexes in cities and small towns. With ticket prices and number of theatres also increasing, the films are likely to do a huge amount of business. Soon, this Rs 100 crore will be like Rs 10 crore. And talking about the overseas business, who knows what business the film is exactly doing in overseas? Once the distributor starts giving actual figures, the numbers will definitely go up.



  • Are I salman I hope u won’t make yuvraaj 2 or Mai or miss khanna 2 — better do actions and break ur bones other wise srk will edge u out hehehe.

  • forget about romantic films,there is only one romantic king named as shahrukh khan,there is no chance for u salman………

  • Romantic films ke liye acting chahiye,jo uske paas nahi hai.bad luck sallu & king of romance srk is coming to smash all record this diwali.eagerly waiting…………..

  • Both SRK n Salman, now they should do only action movies, in Romantic they look like 50yr old Uncle romancing a 22 yr old girl..weird.

  • now its pack up time for srk, ab to salman bhai romance bhi karne wale hain. remember his MAINE PYAAR KIYA, one of the best romantic movie EVER.

  • @Marz srk bada buddha lagta hai ab romantic filmon me. he shld do chek de type movies or play role according to his age.

  • Ok to all who says that Salman can’t act. Salman Khan – The phenomenal. He is a pure strong definition of Bollywood. He has done all genre’s, all styles and every theme. Salman was part of MOST ROMANTIC BOLLYWOOD FILM EVER. Maine Pyar Kiya. & Later in MOST EPIC FAMILY-DRAMA IN HISTORY – Hum Aapke Hain Kaun. Both these film shows the romantic magical screenplay that has never repeated itself. It was Hum Aapke Hain Kaun that inspired Aditya Chopra & Karan Johar (Read his interviews) to make such DDLJ & KKHH. Salman is again extra ordinary who has delivered year’s biggest hits in 4 different genre’s Romantic (Saajan & Maine Pyar Kiya), Comedy (No Entry & Biwi No.1), Family (Hum Saath Saath Hain & Hum Aapke Hain Kaun) & Action (Dabangg & Bodyguard). And If Ek Tha Tiger survives that there’s the fifth genre Thriller. Salman has delivered more Romantic Hits before SRK existed. Maine Pyar Kiya, Saajan, Patthar Ka Phool, Love, Sanam Bewafa and Baaghi. CAN’T WAIT FOR THE RETURN OF OUR PREM!!!! BREAK RECORDS AND BECOME THE 4TH ANNUAL HIT COMBO WITH SOORAJ BARJATYA AFTER MAINE PYAR KIYA (1989), HUM AAPKE HAIN KAUN (1994), HUM SAATH SAATH HAIN (1999).

  • I cant stop laughing reading Salman would do romantic film,he should know u cnt giv expression wt bodydouble so better do action.

  • Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Aapke hain kaun, Saajan, Tere Naam are 100 times better than his recent films Dabaang, Ready, Bodyguard and Ek Tha Tiger…

  • wow. . . . Doesnt matter which genre film he will play but we , die hard fans still lov u salman khan. .
    LoV u sAlmAn. . .

  • i,e better salman bahi , and do , what is better for your health , it does,t matter ,what kind of movie you will do , ATBB, are their destination , just help more needy people and poor ones. As being human and man with golden heart,..

  • salman can’t act…..
    better follow wat u hv done in these last couple of years….
    but y is salman worried of doing action scenes???
    all his scene r done by stuntman…
    salman sucks..!!

  • Instead of salman, the stunts man and double body people should credited more than salman. They have done the hardwork and salman only just shows off. Salman = suar

  • @ indicine
