Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who will next be seen in Kabir Khan’s upcoming film BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, at the trailer launch said that BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN was such a beautiful story that he was greedy about it and didn't want anyone else to do it.
When Salman was asked what was the process of going through the character of Pawan as it is very close to him and similar to what he is in real life and also if there was any internal discovery, he said, “When we first heard the script, I was greedy about BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, didn't want anyone else to do it. It is such a beautiful story told. I don’t think anyone would have been able to tell this story better than Kabir and me.”
“So for you guys, anybody else could have made this film, but the film wouldn’t have been good. It would perform well at the box office, but I thought that I should do a favour and make this film so good. Whether it does well or no is in god’s hands. We’ve given this film our best because we totally believed in this film. This is a film about simple people and it is set in a larger than life backdrop. While shooting for this film, I could heard the narration again and again and every time there was a shot I was normal and in the emotional moments tears used to come out,” he added.
Salman further told, “So, usually when you talk about me, I don’t feel an emotional scene, I use glycerin and it looks ok on screen that way. But in this film, I didn’t even have to do that, I use to turn around for a shot and there were tears flowing down my cheeks. I used to be angry in action sequences & laugh in the comedy scenes and romance… only that was a problem. Romance mein Ali aate the (While romancing Ali used to come), Saif Ali. ”
BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Harshaali Malhotra & others. Produced and directed by Kabir Khan, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN is set to release on 16th July, 2015.
