Recently there were speculations in the trade that Salman Khan will be seen in a dance drama film. The actor has now confirmed the same in his latest interview.
Salman spoke with HT where he was quizzed whether he is fine with playing a father on-screen. “I played a father in Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai when I was in my 30s. I’ve been there and done that. And in my next film, I’m playing the father to a 13-year-old girl.”
“It’s a film about dancing. Like the Hollywood Step Up franchise. I’m going to be a properly trained dancer. You know how painful that is? Sultan was also painful. I had to lose 18 kilos of muscle. I’m not into diets. I eat ghar ka khana. And I don’t eat for taste. As soon as I’ve got my proteins and carbs, I leave the table. So, to lose 18 kilos of muscle was the most difficult thing on the earth. But I’ve always believed that effortless hard work should be seen onscreen. And that’s what I’ve been doing from Wanted to Sultan.”
He added, “I don’t see myself doing character roles. So what if I’m 51? Stallone is still Rocky and Rambo at 70. Filmmaking is the most beautiful industry. We sell dreams. Why shouldn’t I live mine?”
The name of the director has not been revealed yet though there are some reports that it will be Remo D’Souza. As of now Salman has two confirmed projects in his kitty. Tubelight releasing on Eid and Tiger Zinda Hai on Christmas.
