'How can I ask Sooraj, Athiya to kiss?' Salman Khan


Salman Khan has maintained a no-kissing clause in his successful career and he has maintained the same for his two kids, Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi in ‘Hero’, his production venture directed by Nikhil Advani. The superstar feels lip-locking in cinema is not needed for a movie to work.

The 49-year-old ‘Dabangg’ actor said that kissing scenes are not necessary in a film and therefore he has chopped the 30 minutes from ‘Hero’, including kissing scenes.

"There is no kissing scene in the film. We wanted to put one but they (filmmakers) refused. I have not done kissing scene (generally)... how can I ask them (Sooraj and Athiya) to do it. I don't think anyone-whether it's Nikhil (director Nikhil Advani) or Sooraj and Athiya, are interested in kissing. Why do you want to see someone else kiss?Kiss yourself." he said.

Salman Khan turned singer for ‘Hero’. He has sung the title song of the film which is highly appreciated. The actor feels he is a better singer than his arch rival Shahrukh Khan. Interestingly, Salman had said he "can't sing to save" his life.

When singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who has sung ‘Yadaan Teriyaan’ was asked to comment on Salman’s singing skill. Rahat gave a safe reply, "I have heard only Salman Khan's song. I am yet to hear Shah Rukh Khan's song. Salman bhai can sing himself."

Salman, 49, interrupted the singer to say, "No chance... it's a losing battle. Don't listen. He (Shah Rukh Khan) will raise my hand (in victory)." The actor-producer said they wanted an established singer for the movie and chose Amaal Malik. "I felt, why not take Amaal... He has the tune, he has composed the song (title song) well and he also sings well. Himesh Reshamiya and Sajid Wajid can sing, his uncle (Anu Malik) also sings then why not him? He should get a chance," said Salman.

When asked about the tagline of the movie - Rebel, love and freedom, Salman said, "My contribution to Hero. I have contribution towards love, freedom and some what for rebel."

"Sooraj Barjatya (director of Maine Pyaar Kiya) at that time was not an established face but he produced Salman Khan in the industry. It is about how good the film and its music is.. The audience response makes film successful and make stars," he added.
