Salman Khan’s exclusive interview

Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan delivered some huge blockbusters in the past few years and proved himself to be the king of Bollywood Boxoffice. His previous film Jai Ho did not do well and his latest flick Kick is ready for release this Friday, i.e July 25, 2014. Here is the exclusive interview of Salman Khan :


How different is Kick from the original Telugu version?


Kick is inspired by a Telugu film of the same name. The plot is the same but the film is totally different.


What are the action scenes like?


I have been playing sports, riding cycles all my life, so doing these stunts was not very difficult for me. I have learnt how to jump from a motor cycle, fight and drive at the same time, so it’s not difficult.We did not compromise. If a scene required 30 cars being blown off by a bus, there were 30 cars waiting to be blown off. The bus was brought from London to Poland for the shoot.The main hero of this film is the heart of the producer, who never compromised.


The buzz for Kick is more than for other films...


Most films in this genre have this kind of buzz. A little before Wanted, the buzz for this genre increased. Even a film like Ready had that buzz. Action films like Dabangg and Wanted, which have comedy and masti, create a good buzz before the release.


What went wrong with Jai Ho?


Jai Ho is a serious film.

We feel that our film should be better than the previous one. In that process sometimes the film looks convincing and sometimes it just becomes too much to handle. The music of the film also didn’t do well. The ticket cost just Rs 250 when other film tickets were Rs 450, Rs 650 and Rs 950. I think that was a big mistake, though we stand by it because we did it for our fans.

Jai Ho on television is the most amazing film. Ultimately, it is a Rs 126 crore flop, which is fine.


You worked with two hot actresses, Jacqueline and Nargis, in Kick...



Everyone is saying Jacky and Nargis are really hot but I say they are very sweet, and their demureness is hot.


How do you handle the pressure during the release?


I have no pressure at all; I am not in any numbers game.If a film does well, it is okay. If it doesn’t, it bothers me as I gave my best but it doesn’t pressurise me.

Being in the numbers game can be tiring.


How difficult is it to work in a film now?


I have done so many films that now when I say my dialogues, I feel I have said this dialogue somewhere before!It is difficult to bring change, but Jacky has brought a huge difference to my character in Kick.

The film also has Nawazuddin (Siddiqui) and Randeep (Hooda). You have not seen them with me before. I look different because of them.


What gives you the biggest kick?


Getting kicked gives me the biggest kick.


You have a train sequence in this movie. How was that?



I don’t get scared of CG (Computer Graphic) trains (laughs).

In Kick, there is a train but it is at a safe distance. In the scene, I am cycling in front of the train.The reason to keep the train far off is what if the cycle chain comes off or the tyre get stuck crossing the track? It is therefore necessary to keep a safe distance.


Your name in the film is Devil...


My name in the film is Devi Lal Singh. So the short form is Devi L which becomes Devil.


You sing in this film. Is that your passion?


It’s my hobby. I enjoy doing it.

Interviews, I have to do; it’s a compulsion.

I try to enjoy things as much as possible. Till the time I enjoy it, I will do it. The day I feel it is not enjoyable, I will give it up.


You are doing a Rajshree film, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo...

It is the most difficult film I have done in a very long time. It’s been 13 years since I have done a film with Sooraj (Bharjatya).I have changed so much, I am not that pure person any more. But Sooraj is exactly the same, the niceness and innocence that Sooraj had when he wrote Maine Pyaar Kiya at the age of 17 is still there.

This film is going to take me back to the person who I was.


You had a cameo in Riteish Deshmukh’s Marathi film Lai Bhaari.



This is the first film in which I told Riteish to give me a few more scenes.I loved doing it. I was shooting for Jai Ho and he was shooting for Lai Bhaari in Ramoji Studios.We finished the scene in one night. I have not seen the film but I have heard the reactions. It is my first film in Marathi


Tell us about your charity, Being Human.


My mission is to take Being Human to a different level. I am struggling with it. I have never worked so hard in my life. I want to take it to a level where it will be difficult for actors to compete with the magnitude of this charitable trust. Stardom is nothing. It changes every three years. I want them to beat me at this. I want them all to start a charitable trust and I want them to beat me hollow and destroy me at Being Human.I would be happy if they beat me at this.


What are your forthcoming films?


I am doing No Entry Mein Entry, a film with Mahesh Manjrekar. I am doing Shuddhi with Karan Johar. I am also doing a film with Aditya Chopra and Kabir Khan.
