Be it a zany cop in Dabangg
or a sturdy bodyguard in Bodyguard
, Salman Khan says he likes to portray heroic characters on-screen.
The 46-year-old actor says he likes it when his movies are larger than life and whether its romance, drama or action, he will continue depicting heroism. (See Pics: Salman Khan at NDTV studio)
"I want to portray heroism in every walk of life. It's not that I only want to do action films, if I get good comedy or romantic movies I will take them up but whatever I do has to be larger than life. I will do films which make people happy. I want families to go and watch films in theatres like we did before," said Salman Khan, who was in the Capital recently to promote his upcoming film Ek Tha Tiger
Directed by Kabir Khan, the movie also stars Katrina Kaif and will hit the theatres on August 15.
In his 24-year-old career, it is for the first time that he has teamed up with Yash Raj Films.
"I enjoyed shooting for the film, in fact I think I enjoyed so much that others weren't able to have fun. It took many days to shoot the film and Kabir was nice enough to let us enjoy and visit the places we wanted to see," he said.
Salman Khan plays a RAW agent in Ek Tha Tiger
and he says he chose the film not because of the banner or star cast but because of the script.
"I liked the script. That is why I did the film. It is true that you get attracted to all other factors like money, star cast, banner, but it is very important that the script is good. That is the reason sometimes we compromise with the story but I think that should never happen because you won't be able to do justice to it," Salman Khan said.
Talking about working with Sooraj Barjatya after a long gap, the actor said, "He has narrated a script and I like it a lot. The tentative title is Bade Bhaiya
. I like it but he is not sure if he wants to keep it."
