When a young Salman Khan earned the respect of his father, Salim Khan
The name of Salman Khan is surely never be forgotten in Bollywood. He is one of those few superstars who you may love or hate, but certainly can’t ignore. Apart from his successful movies and a string of some controversies, he is the one who is much known for his kind-hearted nature. Many would be aware that the actor has founded the trust Being Human Foundation, in the year 2007, which is largely involved in charity work. This organisation churns out a lot of resources to help out the people who are in a needy. Indeed, Salman has always helped others and recently our eyes caught upon an old interview of Salman’s father and veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan where he had recalled an incident when his son earned his respect and in a way showed how much he loves his family.
In his interview, Salim Khan had said, “Salman earned my respect when he took the beating that should have been Arbaaz’s. I had repeatedly warned them not to touch the car and one day I came home to find it bashed up. Salman really got it that day but he took it without a murmur. The next day I discovered that it was Arbaaz who’d banged the car.” (Also Read:In a quest to save his life: When Salman Khan was tied to a rope and thrown into a well!)
Further, he added saying, “There’s a lot of compassion in Salman. He has always helped others. Our sweeper’s son, whom he used to play with in the compound, recently opened a video shop and asked Salman to open it. He went willingly and even stayed for the party, said a few words and danced. Ask him to go on stage and he’ll baulk, he’s a little shy and that inhibits him.”
Well, Salman has a heart of gold and his goodness has really earned him love and respect not only from his family but also his countless fans and admirers out there.
This old interview with Salim Khan and Salman Khan was printed in the year 1990 in Filmfare after the release of ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’.
Ranbir Kapoor gave these many retakes for a scene in 'Saawariya'
Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the word perfection go hand in hand. The man is extremely particular when it comes to his film and takes care of even the minutest details in every scene. This is also the reason why most of his films are blockbusters. One of the actors who was privileged enough to work with this man is none other than Ranbir Kapoor. Mr Kapoor made his Bollywood debut with SLB’s directorial ‘Saawariya’. Though the movie did not work wonders at the box office, it did give a fair amount of recognition to Ranbir.
In a recent interaction with senior journalist Anupama Chopra, the actor recalled his ‘Saawariya’ days and spoke about the no. of retakes he had to deliver for one particular scene in the song ‘Jab Se Tere Naina.’ (Also Read:In Pics: Lovebirds Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt visit Sanjay Dutt’s residence)
The actor said,” I started with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and he doesn’t do anything less than 45 takes. So even if I had to turn my head, I probably had to give 50 takes. There was a shot in this so-called ‘towel song’ Jab Se Tere Naina, where I had to roll back on this chair and fall down and the towel had to fall in a certain way with my leg showing and there was one shot where I was lying down laughing and I had to get up and sing a song and he’s very particular about what beat you catch, he’s a very musical director – you fall on this beat, you lift your head here, you laugh here – everything is musical. I did 45 or 50 takes one day and my back really broke. The next morning when I came back, he said, ‘No, I’ve not got it’ and I had to do another 70 takes.”
Well, that is something huge but then if you wish to get appreciation from a man like Bhansali, you ought to put in that much amount of effort.
