In his decades-long career, Salman Khan has treated his fans with numerous blockbuster hits. Some of his characters’ like Dabangg’s Chulbul Pandey, Kick’s Radhe even became some of the most iconic roles essayed by Khan. However, while these roles are now synonymous with Bhai, he feels that they can never be role models for his fans.
Talking to Indian Express, Khan quipped, “Dabangg (Chulbul Pandey) is a character, I can’t take that character back home. Radhe is a character, I can’t take back that character. I can’t walk around in front of my parents as Chulbul Pandey. My dad would hit me, my mom would slap me and my brothers and sisters would be embarrassed of me. So, I am at home as a son and as a brother. I would rather be somebody like Bajrangi Bhaijaan.”
“I don’t take the flirting and the love story back home with the heroines, nor do I take all the action, beating up 50-60 people, chopper sequences. I don’t have that in me. That’s a self-obsessed or egoistic person. I know what my capacity is, I know how much I can do and I know how much the stunt double can do. I don’t take that back home but I take a bit of the goodness back,” added the Radhe actor.
He went on to talk about his just-released film, Radhe, and said that film “is a new film so we will not repeat what we have already done in earlier films. Otherwise, it will be that you have repeated yourself again. So, it is new and I need you to see the film and then you tell me what is new apart from me.” He added that he is still the same old Salman- that his fans have been seeing since Maine Pyaar Kiya.
