Salman Khan discussed pan-India films and his next feature with Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi on Monday. He also mentioned the necessity for ‘heroism’ in Hindi cinema. Salman revealed a unique part in Chiranjeevi’s next flick Godfather.

“It’s been a pleasure working with him,” he remarked. I’ve known Chiru Garu for years. He was also a friend. Ram Charan’s son is a buddy. He did an amazing job at RRR. I merely wished him a happy birthday and a good film. I’m proud of him. It’s great that he’s doing well. But I wonder why our movies perform so poorly in the south.

Their movies perform so well here.” The celebrity was speaking at the IIFA Press Conference in Mumbai. The awards ceremony is set for May 20-21 on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Salman Khan stressed the necessity for “hero films” at the event.

“They (the south Indian film industry) and we both believe in heroism,” he remarked. Leaving the theatre requires bravery. We are not creating hero films here, save for one or two. We should resurrect those epic hero flicks. That’s all I do.

But I believe people have gotten cool and think I am cliché.” Heroism works because there is a connection, and that is vital (cinegoers). We’ve had this structure since Salim-Javed, but now south Indian directors are elevating it. I currently work with Chiru Garu and have a tremendous fan following in South India.

They have a unique style of filmmaking. Pawan Kalyan recreated the Dabangg series in Telugu. To labor in the south. More should be made. Now it’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali! They should recreate our movie again. The southern authors labor extremely hard. They produce films on lovely ideas. Even tiny films are shown.

People assume India is just from Cuffe Parade (South Mumbai) to Andheri (suburban Mumbai). Hindustan, however, begins after Cuffe Parade and Andheri. Actual Hindustan is in Bandra East (suburban Mumbai). My movies are for them. These are also excellent messages. “People should feel more alive after viewing a film,” the actor remarked.

Salman also loves seeing south Indian films, but has yet to be given one. “They don’t come to me for a Tamil or Telugu film,” he stated. They ask for Hindi.”

Salman Khan’s next project is YRF’s Tiger 3.
