After showcasing his Dabangg avatar and going rogue in Ek Tha Tiger, superstar Salman Khan said he is on a mission to search for his "innocence and sincerity" through his next two releases Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
"I didn't prepare for the film (Bajrangi Bhaijaan) at all. This movie needed sincerity and innocence which I had lost somewhere. So, I have tried to bring back my sincerity and innocence with both my films - Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo," Salman told reporters during a promotional event for Bajrangi Bhaijaan on July 14.
Along with Salman, director Kabir Khan, actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, singers Mika Singh, Adnan Sami, Jubin Nautiyal and Amar Butala, CEO of Salman Khan Films, were also present at the press conference.
The actor has entertained film-goers by playing rough and brawny characters on the silver screen through a slew of films like Wanted, Dabangg, Ek Tha Tiger and Kick.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan also runs high on action and emotional quotient. It is a story about a man, a Hanuman devotee, helping a young, speech-impaired girl reach home to Pakistan safely. The film will hit the screens on July 17.
Salman is also caught up with Sooraj Barjatya's family entertainer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which also stars Sonam Kapoor.
The actor will be seen sporting his popular on-screen name 'Prem' in the film, which is special for many reasons. It also marks Salman's return to a Barjatya film after 15 years, since the 1999 movie Hum Saath-Saath Hain.
