Salman Khan's Latest Interview With Times Of India
Posted On: Sunday, 29 July 2012
Recently at Suburban Studio, Salman Khan during his free time, talked to Times Of India. Read the Interview below:
The box office expectation from your latest film is so humungous that no other filmmaker wishes torelease his film around that time!
Well, it should be. It's the coming together of two big brands — Salman Khan and Yash Chopra. So naturally the expectations are bound to be high. But that is not something I orchestrated. It is something that the trade is expecting. I only set out to make a good film. On second thoughts, our industry needs more money yaar. Now the government has decided to burden us with a 12.5 per cent service tax! It's crazy the way this business functions.
Will the Bodyguard figures be toppled this August?
Actors don't do movies to break records. The idea is always to make a film with utmost sincerity. Records get made and broken because of statistics.

But above all, we have God's blessings and have managed a faithful fan following.
Who according to you is the biggest Khan? Aamir, Shah Rukh Or you?
Next. This question doesn't interest me.
Are you doing Sooraj Barjatya's film next?
He has narrated a script to me. But I'm starting my younger brother Sohail's film next. Actually when I heard Sohail's script, my immediate reaction was 'wow.' If a script doesn't do that to me; I'm not even going to attempt a film anymore.
So how does this wow thing happen?
Bante bante ban jata hai. A script may be just adequate in the first draft. It becomes extraordinary with a few good dialogues; some good emotions; a great music track; some fantastic action. A lot of small things go into making the big picture. What is first put on paper has to be garnished. The garnishing happens with constant thought, a lot of emotion and a deep understanding of the medium.
Having said that, I'm the first one to admit that despite everything we do, sometimes we actors go horribly wrong with our choice of movies. After all, we are just human
