‘My choice of films will never change’ – Salman Khan

‘Pavan Kumar Chaturvedi’, Salman Khan’s much-loved character in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, has deeply touched audiences all over India. The Kabir Khan directed film beautifully portrayed the relationship between an Indian man and a little girl from Pakistan.

Salman himself has admitted that ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ has had a huge impact on his outlook towards life.

The superstar said “This film has changed my outlook towards life. The way I used to see or lead my life before the film is way different from how I perceive it now. I guess I have become a lot calmer with this film.”

However, the actor says that his choice of films will never change.

“I have been there for 27 years and I’ve done almost 50-60 films. Every six-seven years, I have done something like this. So Bajrangi Bhaijaan isn’t new to me. Suddenly, people are like, ‘Oh, Salman did something different’. But they forget that I did a Tere Naam, a Kyon Ki much before. I did a film called Baghban, at the time I was doing some hardcore action films. But that actor was likeable and should be loved. You should play such characters. I have always made those shifts and will continue doing the same.”

“There needs to be variation. Because if I don’t do that, people will again say that Salman is doing the same. I did five action films and they said that. I did a Bajrangi and they stopped. If I do five back-to-back films in the same space as Bajrangi, audiences will again say the same thing.”

The superstar also added that he makes a conscious effort to not bore the audience by making the same kind of films.

“The bigger the hits, the faster you get bored of watching the same type of films. I thought Hum Saath Saath Hain was a much better film than Hum Aapke Hai.. Koun?, but the latter already ran for over four years and then when you watched Hum Saath Saath Hain, you felt, ‘Arre yeh toh dekhi picture hai’.”

Salman’s upcoming films include Sooraj Barjatya’s family drama ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ and Yash Raj Films’ 2016 Eid release ‘Sultan’, a fiction film where he plays the role of Sultan Ali Khan.

His mind-boggling success in the last few years can also be attributed to his choice of films, director, production house and the effort that he puts into marketing his films.

  • Salman alias Mr handsome… U don’t have to say all these dear. We all know your capabilities.i it’s not easy to do 5 back to back movies with same action genre and still make them 100% success ratio in terms of 100 crores. Very bold statement. After Christiano Ronaldo I have not seen any celebrity with so much controversies and negative images but still stands up and prevail and still get either outspoken praises or inner feeling praises from neutral audiences!!
