The Ek Tha Tiger Director in a candid conversation with media tells about his bonding with Salman Khan.
When we asked about differences with Salman He Said “Not many know that I had narrated the script of Kabul Express to Salman before I put it out to anyone else. I was talking to a friend about it who told me that ‘bhai’ would like to hear it. I narrated it to him and he said ‘good’. Two years later, when I approached Katrina for New York, she took Salman’s advice about doing a dark political film from the house of YashRaj and he heard my name and told her to sign with her eyes closed.
Finally, when we met for ETT, he asked me why I hadn’t ever gone back to him with Kabul Express! I was stunned,” he says, explaining how much he is in sync with his lead actor. “I definitely would take offence if my lead was not offering me inputs — either he’d be brain dead or plain disinterested. Salman offers inputs and vociferously so, but ultimately lets the director rule,”
That’s what we call “Dosti”. Happy Friendship day to All of You.
