People usually have a notion about periodic dramas to be more realistic rather than as entertaining.
But our Bollywood hunk, Salman Khan defies so, depicting in his role in ‘Veer’, where he will showcase that people of past history do have both lighter and serious moments in life.

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.

When asked what inspired him to make a film of past era, he answered, "I had written the story 20 years ago but at that time it wasn't possible to make the film. I thought now is the right time to make it, so I did."

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.

Zarine Khan the new sensation of Bollywood is the female star cast opposite to Salman in 'Veer'.
To give justice to the role he selected someone fresh and stated "The film is of a different genre, so we needed a young fresh look. More than that we needed somebody with a yesteryear look. How our grandmothers and great grandmothers used to look, we needed someone like them.

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.
 When he was asked whether he wanted to create a different impression as an actor he stated "No yaar. I do whatever comes my way." 'Veer' slated to release on Jan 22, is a story of bravery, treachery and love. Salman Khan in such versatile dimension and immense dedication towards the role, we wish all the best to his film ‘Veer’.
