bollywood superstar Salman Khan Monday spoke about Indian films and his upcoming film alongside Telugu star Chiranjeevi. He also spoke of the need for Hindi films to have “heroism”.
Salman shared that he is playing a special role in Chiranjeevi’s upcoming film Godfather. He shared with a major daily: “It was a wonderful experience to work with him. I have known Chiru Garu for a very long time. He has also been a friend. His son (Ram Charan) is also a friend. He did a fantastic job in RRR. I just wished him his birthday and the success of his film. I am very proud of him. It’s so good that he’s doing so well. But I wonder why our films don’t do so well in the South. Their films do so well here.
“Heroism always works, because there’s a kind of connection, and that’s very important to (cinephiles). We’ve had this format since the days of Salim-Javed, but now they (filmmakers in the south from India) take it to the next level. There are a lot of fans there, and now I’m also working with Chiru Garu. They have a different style of films, and it’s very nice. If you see the Dabangg series, Pawan Kalyan redid it in Telugu. Wanted also worked well in the south. More films like this should be made. Now we are doing Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. Such a time should come that they remake our films again. In the South, the screenwriters work very hard. They make films on beautiful concepts. Even when they make small films, people go to see them. I think, here what happened is that people think that India stretches from Cuffe Parade (in south Mumbai) to Andheri (suburb of Mumbai) only. I think however that Hindustan starts after Cuffe Parade and Andheri. The current Hindustan is next to the railway tracks in Bandra East (suburb of Mumbai). My films are also for them. They come with a good message too. After watching a movie, people should have more blood in them,” Salman added.
Salman Khan will be seen next in YRF tiger 3. Speaking about the film, the actor said, “We’ve finished Tiger 3. There are a few pieces left, some final touches. Otherwise, we have finished Tiger 3.”
