© IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd You start getting protective. Really? And at times what happens is that I did a film and then realised that it is not a great film. All of them just play the ‘quintessential man’ and that’s what I like to do. She is innocent, vulnerable, and pure. So, I was really struggling for work, and then my life changed after Maine Pyar Kiya. She doesn’t manipulate or pull anyone down. You start closing down. Then one day, I realised that I don’t want to do any shitty work and only if I got good stuff that I would continue. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai will release on December 22. Look into her eyes. In people’s minds, it is that I have been around for thirty years, but in my mind, I have started only yesterday. I had two friends who got very busy at that moment of time, and one of them said that he was so tired that he needed a break. There was a time when I was really looking for work. After the age of 20-30, your life experiences show up on your face. People used to write about her dancing, initially. We sat on it and then I started doing that for my films. In the film industry and in life, we meet all kind of people. It is about heroism for me. He was working three shifts and his first film Teri Baahon Mein bombed. She doesn’t get depressed with a film not doing well or somebody writing nasty things about her performance. He is all good and positive. It was a big hit. He has no worries. When did you realise that you have become a star and life probably wouldn’t be the same anymore? You have seen Katrina grow from Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya to Tiger Zinda Hai. You met Katrina today? You can say a lot from people’s facial expressions. You get to experience so much and you become aware. Then a film came and I saw the prospects of it becoming a big hit, but I said I need to sit on the script and they allowed me to. You have to be above the film and make sure it is worth the audiences’ time. They dress up, cheer and whistle. And then you end up doing the film, stand on screen and let things happen. She lives in a beautiful, perfect world. You are undoubtedly one of the biggest stars of Bollywood. I may come late to shoot, but I need to work every day and I need to finish the job. I was thrown off as nobody wanted to watch the film (Tubelight) even when I kept on saying that it is not a film that you expect out of me. Earlier I did a lot of films with people I really liked, friends and stuff like that, but the scripts were not so good. And God gave him the longest break, he got no work till Maine Pyar Kiya happened, and he played the main villain in the movie, Mohnish Bahl. So, it is better to decline a film then and there. However, it was a big hit for its first half, not for the second half. I am a story writer and a dialogue writer’s son. So now, whoever I work with, I work when I like the script. For example, people just don’t accept it when you experiment with your roles, films and characters. 2017-12-19T13:41:44+00:00″>

Salman Khan says Katrina Kaif has a child-like feel to her. Q. I did Tere Naam. She has not changed at all. Somebody cons you, somebody hurts you. Bruce Lee, Sylvester Stallone, Charles Bronson, Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford and Rock Hudson – all these people are heroes. You can see how people have changed with changes on their faces. Does your ‘hero’ image limit the actor in you? Somebody told me that I should be an actor, but I didn’t get any work as an actor as well. In such times, anyway, that relationship is going to get sour. Look at Sooraj Barjatya, he is ‘chaka-chak’. You really have to do good work. You can gauge how people have changed from observing their eyes and smiles. My first demand before signing a film is ‘pehle script laao bhai!’ (get me the script first).  
I have some other connect with my audience. I was looking for work as a director, but there was no work for me there. A still from the movie Tiger Zinda Hai. If I like it, I do it. So, at any given point, if you’re confused, you choose nice action sequences which is backed with a lot of emotions and you genuinely feel like doing it, you should do it. So, I never ask for a break. How sweet of you to say that, but I still feel it is Aamir and Shah Rukh who are the biggest stars our country will have in a long time. I couldn’t do what I wanted to do to make the film better. I was doing modelling and stuff like that. So, when you say this to them, it looks like you are dodging them or you don’t want to work with them. If people appreciate her, she works harder. She doesn’t talk badly about anyone. Related News

Somebody cheats you. If they trash her, she works harder. People didn’t want to see me like that. So, I remember that I have to work. See her smile. For example, people are watching Tubelight on television, but they didn’t watch it on screen. You start doing things because others do them too, but she has not changed at all. People go to watch my films during festivals. They just don’t want to see me cry on screen. I think it is about the festive time when people just want to celebrate and cheer. I hear the script. There was a phase in my life, where I was doing shit work. They don’t want to see me crying on screen. And if I don’t like it, then no matter how much convincing goes in, I don’t do it. If you come across a peaceful and calm person, you see it on their face. People say that you need to change and that change is growth, but she is different altogether. There is such a child-like feel to her. Q. He had three film releases. Q. What about her impresses you the most, personally and professionally? Every six-seven years, the style of film-making and scripts change, but this action genre doesn’t.
