I am in a dangerous position today, Salman Khan
If a star delivers back-to-back hit then pressure upon him will be automatically much. He would feel the pressure of audience’s expectation. Salman Khan is in the similar position today. ‘Dabangg’, ‘Ready’ and Bodygurad’, after the super-duper success of one after another film, he feels that he is in the dangerous position as he don’t what what’s going to be next.
"I am happy that my films are doing well. But it is a very dangerous position to be in, as we don't know what to do in the next film. I don't know what to do right now," Salman said in an interview.
"If a script is full of action, and then there is a romantic film...the sudden change from action to romantic makes you wonder how is it going to work, so you don't know what to do," he said.
"If there is a larger than life character in films that I do, then it becomes like no one can kill him...it will get boring. So it is a very dangerous position to be in, like if you take a film to a larger level then it is like too much is happening, if don't take it to that level then it is like first was better. You don't know what to do," the actor said.
Salman said he is not feeling any pressure. "I don't feel the pressure...if it does not do well then it does not. We will see it in next film. If a film is good it will do well. If it is a bad film, it will bomb at box office. I believe audience is always right," he said.
He spoke about Rs 100 crore collections."The Rs100 crore thing is just a PR kind of workshop, talking about (Rs100 crore) collection and all. The person who has come to watch a good film, if he likes it he will come again either with family or friends."
"The number of times he watches the film is good for all of us, for the movie as a whole, the producers, theatre, exhibitors, artists, country and for the economy of the country," he added.
Salman feels that he is lucky to be a part of good film. "I think I have been lucky to have got good films. It is the passion that keeps me going. I like my job and it has turned into my hobby and I enjoy doing it," he said.
In his 24-year-old career in Bollywood, it is for the first time that he has teamed up with Yash Raj Films.
On the association, the 45-year-old actor says, "There is right time for everything. And Ek Tha Tiger came at right time and place. Why I took so long, it is like asking why you are born now, why not later on?"
When asked how ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ impressed him. "It was the script that attracted me to do this film. The script, Kabir Khan as a director and Katrina Kaif in the main lead, title Ek Tha Tiger, then I play a RAW agent, Yash Raj production, all these things were enough for me to go ahead with the film," he said.
Salman, Katrina starrer ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is slated to release on August 15th.
