While speaking at the Global TiE Summit, Salman Khan said that his profession does not allow him to share his vulnerable side with the world. “My profession is such that I have to look good, dress up, do stylised action sequences and romance. Articles come on my affairs, me working with beautiful heroines and then suddenly a court date comes up… People see me on ‘Bigg Boss’ in which I am laughing and joking.”
“So, people think I don’t give a damn about things. That is the most difficult part about our journey as actors. No matter what you are going through at your home or in your personal life, you can’t have sub-titles there. You have to be that character, no matter what you are going through.”
Salman Talks about Depression
Salman said: “I see a lot of people going on vacations, but I cannot afford that luxury of taking a vacation. I see a lot of people getting depressed and emotional, but I can’t afford that luxury of being depressed or sad or emotional because no matter what I am going through, it works against me.”
Aim to give an equally bigger hit as Aamir Khan’s “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak”
At the starting of Salman’s career, he wanted to give an equally bigger hit as Aamir Khan’s “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak”.
Salman added: “The journey I began with ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, not knowing if I would make it, and that time it was difficult because there was another actor, who had started his career and he had given a big hit. That kid’s name was Aamir Khan.”
“He was from the same locality. I thought that he made it and if I didn’t make it, the whole Bandra will start laughing at me. So, my concern was only Bandra- Pali Hill and the friends’ circle, which just had four-five people.”
