|ATHIYA SHETTY, SALMAN KHAN & SOORAJ PANCHOLI AT HERO MUSIC CONCERT|
There were reports that Salman has hardly visited them on the set when they were shooting for the film. When asked Sooraj about it, he said, “He never came on the set. He only came once and that was the day we were shooting the poster. He just entered that sets for about 30 seconds, saw us and went away.”
Telling us the possible reason why Salman didn’t come, he said, “He never wanted to come there maybe because he felt that he would pressurize us by him just being there.”
Sooraj further told us, “He has never ever said anything to us like do this, do that, perform well. He has given us good amount of freedom to finish this film.”

Athiya also had something to say about Salman not vising them on the set. “He visited us on the first day which was the look test. He is very hands on but he isn’t the type of producer who will come and sit everyday on the set. He is busy, he is a busy man. He is extremely hands on when it comes to music, dialogues; he has edited our film and he knows everything,” she said.
Since Salman has been her mentor, we asked Athiya if she felt any added pressure because of that, to this, she said, “There is no added pressure, but I don’t want to let him down. He has seen something in me and I want to make him proud and make him feel that he has made the right decision.”
By what these debutants have to say, Salman Khan is an amazing producer! We hope these newbies make him proud and Salman too can say that they were awesome!
