Salman Khan Decides To Return To The Past
Interestingly Salman, this time has taken to a deep dive in this latest project. It was his greatest fear to get approved from his father and stated "I showed the story to my father and the biggest fear was what is he going to say. But he said it's a good story."
Previously he worked as a scriptwriter for his film ‘Baghi’, 1990. He added " 'Baghi' showed a good relationship between a father and son, 'Veer' does that too. I believe that father and son should be the best of friends. Today, my father and me chat, drink and chill out together.
He wants to create a difference from the previous flicks of Bollywood historical movies and reported "We haven't followed the regular format. This has emotion, drama and comedy unlike other period films, which always casts an impression that no one used to laugh in those days."
Something more important about this film, he mentioned, "The language has undergone a huge change. The dialogues are in contemporary language but would show that people of that time used to speak and behave like this," he added.
Interestingly you will find Salman in a character of 18th century Pindaris, who preferred death to dishonor and fought to their last breath to save their land.
It was luckily he landed up with the right person, in his search for the suitable heroine for the role and reported "Just two weeks were left to start the film and we didn't have anyone who would fit the role. We were searching left, right and centre and met her by coincidence on the set of Subhash Ghai's 'Yuvvraaj'."
When he was questioned about his choice for Zarine due to resemblance with his girlfriend Katrina Kaif, he defended saying, "Except being fair and having a sharp nose, I don't see any similarity between them. Give god that credit for not making two people identical," said Salman.
Sharing his relation with his father, he states "But if I cross my line, I run away. I stay outdoor for two months. That's the chemistry they should share. The respect should also be there," said Salman who claims that he could be a good father.
He has no idea how good he can be as a husband but as a father he says "I am not sure how good I would be as a husband, but I believe I would be a good father. One has to get married, I will also get married but haven't decided when."
What is more genuine about Salman is his down to earth nature, may be possibly due to his social contribution towards the down trodden upliftment programs.
