Salman Khan is known for his downright honesty while speaking over issues like dealing with stardom and being in the spotlight always. In a recent interview, he talked about the demerits of always being in the spotlight. Salman feels an actor has to entertain his audience irrespective of what he is going through on a personal level.
In this interview to Filmfare Salman opened up about the challenges he has faced while promoting Race 3 and also dealing with his brother Arbaaz Khan’s IPL Case. Juggling between the two was tough for the Wanted actor.
Arbaaz Khan was recently summoned under charges of betting over the Indian Premier League. It was tough for Salman as he had to present at the promotions of the Remo D’Souza directorial as he was the prime face of Race 3. Talking about the struggles he had to face trying to do both he said, “Something which is a challenge, not just for me but any other actor, is that even though you’re going through trouble, you have to be out there promoting your film, romancing your heroines. No matter how down you are, how messed up you are, that shot has to be done right. You have to make people laugh on the show even though you could be going through so much.”
The actor added, “For example, when Arbaaz (Khan) was summoned (IPL betting case), I had to attend the Race 3 press conference. You can’t show what you’re going through. You can’t be depressed while promoting a film. I have to do this no matter what my parents, my family, my friends and I are going through. That’s a battle that one will always have to fight.”
On the work front, Salman will soon start work on Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat and Prabhudheva’s Dabangg 3 simultaneously. After the two films, he is expected to shoot Remo D’Souza’s untitled dance film.
