After three back-to-back hits, Salman
Khan is at the peak of his career in Bollywood but the actor
says it is a dangerous place to be in as one does not know
what to do next.
"I am happy that my films are doing well. But it is a
very dangerous position to be in, as we don't know what to do
in the next film. I don't know what to do right now," Salman
said in an interview.
"If there is a larger than life character in films
that I do, then it looks like no one can kill him which will
get boring. If you take a film to a larger level then it
is like too much is happening, if you don't take it to that
level then it feels like first was better. You don't know what
to do," the actor said.
After three consecutive Eid blockbusters - Wanted,
Dabangg and Bodyguard, the 46-year-old actor is now ready
with yet another promising film Ek Tha Tiger.
Post his back-to-back hattrick with Dabangg (Rs 215
crore), Ready (Rs 180 crore) and Bodyguard (Rs 230
crore), not only the audience but even the producers are
pinning their hopes on Salman's forthcoming film.
If there is any pressure of delivering another hit at
the box office, Salman is not showing any signs of it.
"I don't feel the pressure...if it does not do well
then it does not. We will see it in next film. If a film is
good it will do well. If it is a bad film, it will bomb at box
office. I believe audience is always right," he said.
Talking about the trend of the Rs 100 crore bracket, the
actor said, "The Rs 100 crore club is just a PR workshop. The
person who has come to watch a good film, if he likes it he
will come again either with family or friends.
"The number of times he watches the film is good for
all of us, for the movie as a whole, the producers, theatre,
exhibitors and artists," he added.
The actor credits his success in films to luck.
"I think I have been lucky to have got good films. It is
the passion that keeps me going. I like my job and it has
turned into my hobby and I enjoy doing it," he said.
In his 24-year-old career in Bollywood, it is for the
first time that he has teamed up with Yash Raj Films for Ek
On the association, Salman says, "There is right time for
everything. And Ek Tha Tiger came at right time and place.
Why I took so long, it is like asking why you are born now,
why not later on?"
The story of Ek Tha Tiger lured Salman towards the
"It was the script that attracted me to do this film.
The script, Kabir Khan as a director and Katrina Kaif in the
main lead, title Ek Tha Tiger, then I play a RAW agent, Yash
Raj production, all these things were enough for me to go
ahead with the film," he said.
The film will hit theatres on August 15.
