Salman Khan is basking in the stupendous success of Tiger Zinda Hai. In a Bollywood Hungama exclusive interview with Faridoon Shahryar, Salman bared his heart out on the importance of ‘Insaniyat’ in today’s merciless world. He spoke about the Tiger sequel, Bharat and how Katrina Kaif may soon end up having three 300 crore films.
‘Insaniyat sabse bada mazhab hai, do you think that it is the finest take away apart from the stupendous action that you have in Tiger Zinda Hai?
The film is actually designed for that one line, that insaniyat se better koi cheez nahi hai. Pehle insaniyat fir baaki saare mazhab. Har mazhab ek he cheez sikhata hai aur woh hai Insaniyat.
Kartrina was outstanding in the film. This is her first Rs. 300 crore film.
Katrina has just given a Rs. 300 crore film and after this she is doing Thugs of Hindostan and then if Tiger does same kind of business then she will also have three Rs. 300 crore films!
You are talking about the sequel of Tiger.
You feel that it should be sooner than the time gap between the first and the second one.
Yeah I think this one will be slightly faster than the other one.
The supporting starcast Paresh Rawal, Angad Bedi, Anupriya, Paresh, Girish Karnad were in great form.
Paresh was damn good! Angad Bedi was damn good. Girish ji is amazing. Sajjad was very good; he is on the level of Gabbar Singh. He has done an incredible job. If the villain didn’t work for us then the film wouldn’t have created the impact.
Sajjad managed to create terror through his mere talk.
Jo set up hai woh itna badha diya gaya hai and he has carried off so well. He is a really simple guy but he carried it so well. He had a lot of pressure in the film and the beauty iske zyaada se zyaada unke dialogues English mein the par uske bawajood he has been appreciated and liked aur kaafi unhonee film ke andar terror phailaya hai. He is a really simple guy.
Anupriya is the nurse, Paresh and Kumud Mishra.
Kumud was there with me in Sultan as well and all these guys have worked really really well! They all have small cameos but they have all played their parts well. Nawab was really good and Najmuddin that villain.
The world view that has been showcased in #TigerZindaHai is very important. When Abu Usman says that the war is a business it makes a lot of practical sense. People invest a lot of emotions in following a certain ideology but they are basically being used.
I think the only way that you can get out of these things is by working. Everyone should find themselves a job and everyone should get jobs and everyone should work hard on themselves. Be positive, remove negativity kick it out. You just need to do the right things and you should not get influenced by people who could influence you to do anything negative like harming yourself or harming somebody else. No book, no religion, no teacher, or anyone will teach you this.
Your fans love Ali Abbas Zafar. They feel like abhi aapko saari filme inke saath karni chaheye because he taps your entire potential. You are having Bharat with him. Looking forward?
Of course Yes Yes. Ali will be ready with the script in 2-3 weeks and I’ll listen to it and move on to Bharat.
