We will now have our very own Bollywood’s Gladiator, Salman Khan is going to be a long haired gladiator in his forthcoming flick Veer. Well this is not he first time that Sallu is turning warrior, he has done it before in not so remembered Suryavanshi.

Interestingly the script has been written by Sallu, while he was filming his popular flick Baaghi.

Salman says, “I wrote this script while working on Baaghi. But, it wasn’t feasible to make it then because of its vast canvas. Now things have changed, production values have gone up and technically we are so much superior.”

Salman is shown as a warrior who honors what he says and even dies for it, “Like me, I am a Pathan, and I live by what I say,” adds the actor.

Salman also revealed his directorial wishes and how he ended up as an actor.

He admits, “I wanted to be a director when I started out. But I guess I was meant to be an actor. I didn’t think I was good looking, but people felt that my eyes were very expressive.It(Direction) was a keen desire then”

We all would like to see Sallu bhai behind Lens also, to see how good he understand’s Indian Cinema..

I am not King says Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan is away, has been away — actually, post-IPL, from the public eye. He laughed at the realisation, “You cannot miss me for too long. I will be back.” The Bollywood Badshah explained his absence. He was busy “with incessant shooting” for his home production Billoo Barber and Yashraj’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi which he hopes to complete before plunging into preparations for the next Twenty20 tournament. During this time the ‘King’ tag which he wore for years came within grabbing distance of other Bollywood contenders. It is a situation that amuses him. “It’s better to be known as King Khan than Pauper Khan,” admitted SRK. “But this is just an image, a clever alliteration by the media. My kids don’t wake me up in the morning saying, ‘Get up, King’. They say, ‘Get up, Daddy’. That says it all. It’s far away from reality.” However, he is handsome enough to admit that times are changing and these are the signs. “The territory of superstar doesn’t belong to one actor today. Actors who have consistently worked for around 20 years are all superstars. Akshay is rightfully a superstar today. So is Aamir Khan, and Ajay Devgan, Salman, even Hrithik, though he is from the younger lot. They have super energies and super luck.”

How come he is generous in his praise of Salman when, after their fallout, Salman was vocal about his feelings even though he, Shah Rukh, kept quiet? “I don’t like talking things private to me. I’m talked about because I’m emotionally not available to everyone and that disturbs them. They have the right to talk and I have no issues,” he said. Throwing further light on the spat, he added, “I think like a father would whereas Salman thinks like a son. That’s okay. We are two different kind of people. We had nothing in common. We think differently.” But, in flashback mode, SRK revealed, “Salman and I had some really good times together. Strangely, these memories are fading away. So I’m sure even the bad memories will fade.” Would they work at a reconciliation? He refused to be drawn into a commitment, but said, “We are both happy in our own worlds. If it happens — good; if it doesn’t happen, — very good. Not being friends doesn’t mean Salman and I are great enemies.”

Imran Khan to sex it up for Delhi Belly

Ranbir Kapoor had opted out of Delhi Belly with a squirm, protesting to producer Aamir Khan that he wouldn’t be able to watch the film at the premiere with his parents. But Imran’s cool with the sexual content of his mamu’s film, “I’d have no problem watching it with my mom or girlfriend. I have a cool rapport with my mom.”

Imran has been attending workshops for Delhi Belly. “We started shooting from October 4. Delhi Belly is in English,  so it’s inherently limited in appeal.” Imran has lost weight for this role, “I needed to lose that muscular look. So I’ve stopped gymming completely. I’m not exercising at all. And I’m eating as much as I want because I’m not prone to  fat at all. For Kidnap and Luck, I needed a bulkier body.”

He continues, “I played a daredevil and had to jump off the 20th floor. I insisted on doing it myself although the body double was present. I got a shouting afterwards from my mom, girlfriend and Sanjay Dutt. In fact, Baba phoned Aamir to complain. That’s how Aamir got to know about it.

Having jumped from that height, I’ve lost fear of stunts. My next action film will have to be really big.  I grew up being thrilled by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. I had decided that if I were offered those kinds of stunts, I’d do them on my own.”

After Aamir heard that Imran had performed a dangerous stunt for Kidnap, Aamir called Imran home and gave him a dressing-down. Says Imran, “He said, ‘You have to be more responsible towards yourself and your family.’ He’s right but I don’t know if I can listen to him in this case.”
