Salman: I don't watch Katrina's films !!!
Bollywood's favourite brat speaks about the women in his life and more
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has been a part of the Indian film industry for more than 20 years. Controversy’s favourite child, the actor will soon be seen in his new film Wanted. In an interview with CNN-IBN's Entertainment Editor Rajeev Masand, Salman gets candid about Katrina, marriage and ex-girlfriends.
Rajeev Masand: Salman it's been 20 years exactly since Maine Pyar Kiya. It's the film, which shot you to success and fame. What are your memories of making the film?
Salman Khan: I didn't want to go meet Suraj (Sujar Barjatya). I was literally forced ot go and meet him. I was thinking it's Rajshri, they will make wear a dhoti. They had made serious films so I said I didn't want to go meet him. Then I was told that I must go and meet him. So Honey uncle, who works with my dad, gave me money for taxi and then I went and met him. But when Suraj started narrating the script to me I thought it was super cool. And when he started talking about the Kabootar song Suraj got tears in his eyes. Looking at Suraj I got tears in my eyes. The way he looked at me, he knew that I felt the scene. As soon as the narration finished I said okay Suraj, I'm on. He said 'no, no I haven't signed you yet, I’m looking for more people'. So I on hearing this suggested four-five of my friends and said if not me one of my friends should get it.
Rajeev Masand: There is this story that filmmaker Ashutosh Gowarikar who was an actor at the time was almost signed for the film with Bhagyashree?
Salman Khan: No, no he's lying. But Rajiv Goswami and Deepak Tijori were considered. Suraj was flying to Ooty to sign Neelam Kothari for Bhagyashree's role. He then saw Bhagyashree in the office and signed her, I told him Bhagyashree looks like my sister. But he said she was perfect for the role and then when we saw her on screen, she was an absolute delight.
Rajeev Masand: In these 20 years, you have done films which went on to become big blockbusters and some that were complete washouts. Do you get upset when a film doesn't work or flops?
Salman Khan: When one does a film and everything goes on right in it, the director, producer, actors have all done their bits, but when you see it just doesn't work. Sometimes it turns out superb and sometimes it just doesn't work. My film Love is an example of that, I was really happy with that film but it didn't work. Even Andaz Apna Apna which is now a cult comedy film didn't work at the time. They were ahead of their time.<img src=http://www.orkut-scrap.net/img/Animated-Dolls/1.gif >
