Salman Khan has dismissed accusations of nepotism for launching his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma in the coming film, Loveyatri.
The 52-year-old actor contends that somebody would have launched Aayush, if not him, as he has been working hard for his movie industry debut for years.
“He has been training hard. I knew this nepotism factor would return up.. he’s son of a politician however can you put him into this nepotism factor. this is often the only one place where nepotism cannot work at all. it’s the audience that make you a superstar or will reject you no matter whose son or a in-law you’re,” Salman said at a special Loveyatri concert in mumbai.
The Race 3 actor cites his own example and says it’s “totally the audience who decide what they like and what not”.
“You never recognize what they would like. you may be the simplest looking guy and best actor and that they just reject you and you’ll have nothing. and then there’s something about you that audience goes to observe your film in cinema halls however this is often till your last film.” Salman further points out that the industry has become a very competitive field which he believes is good.
He says, even today, he gets nervous on a Friday, especially once his films are releasing, be it as an actor or producer. “I remember when maine Pyaar Kiya had released went on a motorbike with my friend in a theatre to measure the reaction of the audience. during the interval individuals saw me and i had to run far from there. it’s one of the happiest moment for me.
“I am one of the lucky ones that even my flop films do business of over Rs 100 crore. I told Aayush and Warina that though you deliver a flop film it should do Rs 160 crore at the box office.. thus currently they have pressure of flop film.”
Loveyatri was previously titled Loveratri however had a last-minute amendment after certain religious quarters defendant Salman of hurting their sentiments. The film are going to be released on october 5.
