Salman Khan says he’s working hard at 55, won’t hand over stardom to next generation: ‘Mehnat karo’

Salman khan he’s not in the mood to be charitable. The actor who has been one of Bollywood’s top stars for nearly three decades is now aiming for a long stay in the same place. If the younger generation wants to replace him, they better be prepared to work very, very hard for it.

In a media interaction ahead of his upcoming film Antim, which also stars his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, the actor downplays the theory that the arrival of OTT heralds the end of the age of superstars. Laughing at the idea, the actor said: “We will go, someone else will come. I don’t think that era of stars will go away. It will never go away. It will always be there. Now it depends on many things, the movie selection, what you are in real life and more. It is a complete package of things. This younger generation will have their stardom. I’ve been listening to this for the last four generations, ‘ki yeh last generation hain (this is the last generation of stars)’ ”.

That said, he’s not in the mood to hand the title over to the next generation. “We will not let the younger generations take it easy. We will not hand it over to them. ‘Mehnat karo bhai, pachas plus me mehnat kar hi rahe hain, toh aap bhi mehnat karo (work hard, we are working hard at the age of 50 or older, you should work hard too), ”said Salman.

The actor also talked about the Mahesh Manjrekar-directed film and how the character is not your typical Bhai. The actor agreed that Mahesh shed his stardom to some degree. “Yeah, he did it because you couldn’t make this character be like Dabangg. If I wanted to do that, I would have made Dabangg 4. This character has a similar seriousness to my character in Garv and also has a lot of nobility. It is very Hindustani. He’s rude and doesn’t yell or yell. You are focused on what you want to do. He will take orders and be humiliated, but he will do what he wants at the right time. It will show your emotions but it will also sacrifice someone for what is right. In the Marathi movie, the policeman had only four or five scenes. I didn’t want to redo Mulshi Pattern. So like I said, I just took the plot and made a different movie. “

Talking about his Rajvir Singh in the film, Salman added: “I knew what the character was. If one adds more to the character, then the character is diluted. Mahesh was also very clear about it. So my character is there, he is smiling, jovial and pleasant, he is not khadoos. He has a different way of handling things; the MLA also humiliates him. He is someone very tolerant and deep. “

But won’t audiences miss Salman’s larger-than-life characters, the ones they adore on the big screen? “This role is larger than life but at the same time it is realistic. There is action and all the other ingredients. It’s just that this character looks better on his own so we didn’t have a heroine with him and the only place he dances in the movie is at Bhai Ka Birthday and that’s also because he sees his junior officers behind him shaking a leg. ”Salman . said.
