The Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan never shies away from spitting facts and opinions in his interviews or media conferences. The bhaijaan of the Indian film industry is loved by billions and admired by many for his philanthropy work that rarely meets the media eye. The actor is currently busy promoting his much-awaited film, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan. The film is directed by Farhad Samji, who is the man behind movies like Housefull 3, Housefull 4, Bachchhan Paandey and many more.
The anticipation for Salman Khan’s KKBKKJ is quite high as the actor can be seen in two different looks in the film, which has already created a lot of buzz on the internet. At the 68th Filmfare Awards 2023 press conference, Salman was asked about the young actors, who have impressed him with their performances. The actor admitted that there are a few actors, who are truly hard-working and possess serious acting skills. However, bhaijaan also admitted that his contemporaries aren’t retiring anytime soon.
Giving a savage response to the constant comparisons between young actors and ageing superstars of Bollywood, Salman Khan named five actors, including himself, who can still give them a run for their money. The actor stated that he, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn are still here and still possess that aura and dominance at the box office. Salman also added that none of them is leaving the stage anytime soon, as their films are also performing well at the box office. However, he took a dig at some young actors, who hike their fees even when their films aren’t performing well. Taking a jibe at the so-called young superstars of Bollywood, Salman said:
"We (Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan) will make them run for their money. We are not retiring anytime soon. Our films also work and so we hike our fees. Seeing that, they also increase their fee even when their films are not working."
Further, in the same press conference, Salman Khan also explained how some filmmakers don’t understand the audience. He added that for some young directors, India is from Andheri to Colaba, and they think that they’re ‘too cool’. The Bollywood superstar stated that India is quite different from what the ‘cool filmmakers’ show in their films. However, Salman also admitted that he hopes his words don’t bite him as his upcoming film, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, will soon hit theatres.
On April 6, 2023, Salman Khan took to his Instagram handle and raised the temperature with his shirtless picture. The bhaijaan looked dapper in the drool-worthy picture in which he can be spotted sitting on a couch and flaunting his chiselled chest and six-pack abs. The picture is doing rounds on the internet at the moment. From people bombarding the comment section of Salman’s picture to fans calling him the OG of body-building in Bollywood, Salman has once again set the internet on fire with his physique.
On the professional front, Salman Khan’s Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan is slated to release on April 21, 2023.
