Shakti Kapoor credits superstar Salman Khan for bringing back parents and family emotions back on the big screen, something he believes was missing from Hindi films for some time.

"There used to be a lot of emotions around parents once and the audience wants it again. 'Himmatwala' (remake) is on the same lines and Salman Khan is responsible for starting it again," the 57-year-old said here Sunday at the music launch of his upcoming film "Saawariya - Khatu Shyam Ji Ki Amar Gatha".

"In 'Wanted (2009)', 'Ready', 'Dabangg' and 'Dabangg 2' you get to see emotions revolving around mother, father and brother which was missing from our films for some time," he added.

Directed by Vinod Chhabra, "Saawariya - Khatu Shyam Ji Ki Amar Gatha" tells about the glory and wonders of Lord Khatu Shyam.

Talking about his role in the film, Shakti said: "'Saawariya...' is for god. It is a family drama and after watching the film you will feel like it is a Rajshri (the banner known for making 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun...!' and 'Vivaah') film."

"I play a guy with dark shades, what I am known for. The only dark character in the film is Shakti Kapoor. However, in the end he realises his mistake and asks god for forgiveness," he added.

    @aczc
    I totally disagree...movies nowadays miss good strong concepts and storylines...where as back in the day the movies wer very good..strong concept...nowadays not much attention is given 2 the way u act...or evn 2 the fact whether or nt u can act...but then acting was all important...thts y superstars wer made... u can never see any of the current young actors/actresses be another rajesh khanna or madhubala etc...
    movies in the 90s and 80s include maine pyar kia, kuch kuch hota hai, dilwale, all of which r stil remembered 2day

    Yes indeed that is true...it's especially seen in Ready where he lives in a joint family typical of the 90s.
