salman khanActor Salman Khan has been delivering back-to-back hits in the Hindi film industry. He says after the failure of his 2010 film "Veer", he makes sure the final cut of any of his films has his approval.

He feels an actor's involvement in creative processes helps sometimes.

"When I put my foot down sometimes, I hope I am not taking advantage of my stardom and that's a big guilt. Eventually, what the audience first watches is only me in the poster, so I will be held responsible for everything," Salman said here in an interaction.

"So we also have to see that in just being polite, the film doesn't go for a toss. Aamir (Khan) does it very correctly. Now I have started making it clear right in the beginning. I make sure that the final cut goes with my approval. After 'Veer', I have started doing this," he said.

Salman, who wrote the story for "Veer", admits he wasn't satisfied with the final product that the film turned out to be.

"I was not happy with 'Veer' when they showed me the film. I cut down the film to one hour and 55 minutes, and eventually they released the film as a two hour and 30 minute-film, which is not a done thing. They thought they will get away with that, but they didn't and I was very upset with the fact because I wrote its script and I knew if it has to be that long, then I need those 18 days of shoot because I needed the high points."

"The scale of the film was very big. So one hour and 55 minutes was a perfect length for it. Till the time it is interesting, it is fine, but the film has to hold (the audience)," he added.
