Salman Khan: Some people from the industry will never be welcomed in my home

After being in the industry for almost 30 years, there’s a lot you learn and you have a number of experiences and stories to share. Salman Khan, who is one of the biggest stars of the industry has always been in the news for various reasons, sometimes for some controversies, sometimes for his movies and sometimes for helping people in need. The actor has been a mentor for a number of new comers and has shut his door forever for some people in the industry.

In an interview with DNA, Salman talks about various things including about his friends and enemies in the industry. So does he have friends and enemies?

“I don’t have enemies. It’s just that I don’t like a few people. It’s very obvious because I make no bones about it. Just because someone is born a few years before me, it’s no reason for me to respect him. If that person keeps on disrespecting me or any member of my family, I refuse to give him due regard. There are one or two families from whom I have not got that respect and love. That’s where it ends. Some people from the industry will never be welcomed in my home,” he said.

He further added, “I definitely believe that whether someone is a senior or a junior, you shouldn’t be disrespectful to them. Especially, if you are working with them. However, if that person is taking you for an idiot and is being disrespectful, then that’s not done.”

Salman believes in raising himself up rather than putting someone’s level down. He says, “The only person you should ever race against is yourself. When you do that, you take your own level up. That is the most satisfying yet the most painful thing. Until the audience sees your pain, the hard work that you have put in to look your best, to fight and still appear effortless on screen, they do not appreciate you. I’ve always believed that instead of putting someone’s level down, one should continuously attempt to raise that of your own. One is in a race to raise one’s level higher. Everyone is building their own quality quotient. You are encouraged by watching your seniors to rise to their standard, while the juniors motivate you to raise the bar, so the table doesn’t drop.” (Also Read: After producing and distributing films, Salman Khan now set to own a chain of theatres)

Salman is not worried about competing with Aamir Khan or Shah Rukh Khan. He shares, “Salman Khan is worried about Salman Khan every single day. I’m not the most politically correct person you will meet. And, I think it is important for one to be right. It’s the best thing. You are called the grassroots man. Why do you think you got this tag? That is the upbringing given to me by my parents. I spent my childhood with my family and friends. I have lived on farmlands, with kisaans till the age of 16 in Indore from where my father hails. All through my growing up years, for a few months each year, I’ve seen the metros as well as rural areas. I know the language of the city and the heartland. That is my plus point. I’m fortunate my father was from there. It’s important to sit with people who are a lot more intelligent and experienced than you are, instead of those who just praise you. Sometimes in life, it is important to listen rather than trying to win every argument. You may not get it at that point of time, but a few years later, you understand the value of sitting with more informed and intelligent people who have compassion. That has been my journey.”

Salman’s upcoming release is ‘Race 3’ which will release on June 15, 2018. Apart from that, he will also be seen in ‘Bharat’ which also stars Priyanka Chopra, ‘Dabangg 3’ and ‘Dancing Dad’.

Now 'Badan Pe Sitare Lapete Hue' song to be recreated for 'Fanney Khan'

The makers of ‘Fanney Khan’ are all set to treat the audience with a new version of Shammi Kapoor’s iconic song ‘Badan Pe Sitare Lapete Hue’. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the makers have already shot the song featuring Anil Kapoor.

The original song was crooned by the legendary singer  Mohammad Rafi, whereas Sonu Nigam has lent his voice to the new version. The director also shared that the music and lyrics of the original have been retained and only a new voice has been used for it.

Sharing some more details about this song, director Atul Manjrekar told the tabloid, “AK(Anil Kapoor) sir’s character who is an orchestra singer considers Mohammad Rafi and Shammi Kapoor as his Gods and sings their songs. This one is his most favourite. You’ll also see him pull off some of Shammi saab’s iconic moves.” 

The director further added, “We couldn’t use Rafi saab’s voice as AK Sir’s character sings in the film. At the same time, we wanted someone who would do justice to our tribute to the original. It was AK sir who suggested Sonu’s name and all of us instantly agreed because who better than him to do justice to this great song.”

So after ‘Halka Halka’ and ‘Mohabbat’ we are eagerly looking forward to this new rendition of ‘Badan Pe Sitare Lapete Hue’ song. Also featuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao in a significant role, ‘Fanney Khan’ is all set to hit the silver screens on August 3.

Nora Fatehi, who was once committed to Angad Bedi, recently gave a shocking interview, when asked about her ex. In the interview with Hindustan Times, she said, “Who is Angad? I don’t even know who Angad Bedi is.

After this shocking statement, the actress has now posted a photo with a cryptic message on her Instagram handle. Is her message hinting towards Angad Bedi? This is the only question which has popped up in everyone’s mind after reading it.

With the sexy photo, she wrote, “Sidetrackin’ me when I was good to you, You were somebody I would stand behind.” Check out her post here:

This message of Nora surely mirrors her current state of mind.

For the uninitiated, the reason Nora and Angad broke up was Angad’s growing closeness to Neha Dhupia. Later, Angad Bedi married Neha in an intimate wedding ceremony in Delhi which was a shocking news for many.

Coming to Nora’s professional front, she recently featured in ‘Satyamev Jayate’s hit song ‘Dilbar’ and also has a quirky number in Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao‘s ‘Stree’.

Nora Fatehi has been on cloud nine since the release of ‘Dilbar’ which has already hit 200 million+ views and has been steady at number 3 on the International music charts. While the entire nation is dancing to the tune of the reinvented song from 90’s era, Nora, who choreographed the belly dancing moves in the song herself, is all set to collaborate with the film’s producer, Nikhil Advani for the second time. Apparently, Nikhil is so impressed with the roaring success of the song and Nora’s performance in it that he has roped her in for a second collaboration.

A source close to the actress said, “Nikhil is elated with the kind of success ‘Dilbar’ has achieved that too in just 2 weeks of its release. With such an incredible team and Nora’s recreation of the magical number has put ‘Dilbar’ on the global map and it is reason enough for duo to come together again and that’s exactly what is being worked on currently.”
