Actors don't do movies to break records: Salman Khan


At a suburban studio; between takes, Salman Khan sits outside his vanity van, surrounded by his in-house doctor, some members of the cine artistes association and his own team.

Bhai, as he is fondly referred to by most people, is organising an eye-camp for the less privileged in Bollywood. Once he has wrapped that, he takes a short break to talk to TOI. Excerpts:

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. The numbers of theatres that play Bollywood movies globally have increased; the release of films is now very wide. Naturally the returns have increased. Frankly from now on, I want all films to start crossing the ' 200 cr mark. I was sitting with some members of the junior artistes association today and I was sad to hear that many junior artistes and technicians in the industry still don't have money to pay for their medical needs and basic amenities. I hope all our movies make enough to at least provide these guys with a
decent livelihood.

Two decades into the business and the Khan-trio is still ruling the roost...
Kya boloon. It's destiny. I'm grateful to Sooraj Barjatya for Maine Pyar Kiya and so many others who believed in me. I guess all three of us (Aamir, Shah Rukh and I) have been lucky. Sometimes we got good scripts that turned out to be even better films. And at other times, our very ordinary films have done wonders at the box office. 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

Agreed. But do you think that the monies should be chanelised better?

I hope all our movies make enough to at least provide these guys with a decent livelihood. I feel sad every time I hear a hard-luck story.

Salman Khan's wax figure coming to New York

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will join fellow stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan in the "Bollywood Zone" of wax figures at Madame Tussauds museum in New York Aug 2.

Salman Khan, who burst onto the scene with his award-performance in "Maine Pyar Kiya in 1989", is one of Bollywood's most bankable actors.

His latest film, "Bodyguard", has become the second highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time. In 2004, People magazine named Khan the seventh best-looking man in the world.

"Salman Khan is one of Bollywood's most enduring and recognizable stars," said Bret Pidgeon, general manager of Madame Tussauds New York. "Bollywood exploded on the American pop culture scene several years ago and has become one of our most exciting entertainment categories."

Madame Tussauds New York's Bollywood Zone is a brightly-coloured, fully-interactive area that includes a replica of the Taj Mahal, videos of authentic Indian dancers and a photo area where visitors can pose with Bollywood stars, all designed to re-create the experience of being on a Bollywood film.

Over the coming years, Madame Tussauds plans to expand the area to include figures of other prominent Bollywood stars.

Khan's figure, on loan for three months from Madame Tussauds London, was launched in January 2008, after Khan beat nine other Indian mega-stars - including Madhuri Dixit, Hrithik Roshan, Lata Mangeshkar and Abhishek Bachchan - in an August 2007 public poll to choose the "Next Bollywood Star" that would get a wax likeness.

Khan personally chose and donated the black top and denim jeans for his wax figure.

"No Entry" director Anees Bazmee says there will be nine leading actresses in the sequel to his 2005 hit comedy film.

"We will have nine actresses in our film, but we have not finalised who all will be doing it," Bazmee told IANS.

"As far as the leading men are concerned, Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan are confirmed and all three of them will be playing a double role," he added.

The film will go on floors soon this year.

"I have locked the script. The film should go on floors soon. We will shoot some portions in Mumbai and rest of it will be shot outdoor," said Bazmee.

His "No Entry" featured the same men - Salman, Anil and Fardeen Khan, but with actresses Bipasha Basu, Lara Dutta, Esha Deol and Celina Jaitley.
