The actor spoke on an episode of the third season of Masterclass by Viu, in conversation with host Cyrus Sahukar shared this interesting story about the ‘Dabangg’ star.
King Khan said, “I still remember, this was at the premier of ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’. I had a couple of friends sitting beside me. There is a scene in the movie where I say ‘Raj agar yeh tujko pyaar karti hai toh palat ke dekhegi. Palat. Palat. Palat.’ And at that point, my friend tells me ‘It looks like you’ll kill her like you killed the girl in ‘Baazigar’. If you weren’t in this movie, it would do really well.’ I felt very sad.”
He continued to say, “The first person outside the production who saw the film and said it’s a great one was my friend Salman Khan.”
The actor didn’t stop to talk and went on to all women in his life, saying, “Even today it’s strange that everyone calls me a romantic hero because I’m really awkward doing it. I would like to thank all the heroines in this country who’ve done films with me because they made me really comfortable.”
He opened up a more and said, “Every time I’d do a scene, I’d say I cannot do this, what to do? And they said- Just do it, don’t worry. I would say these things to Kajol, Madhuri, Juhi, everyone. And they’ve always supported and been kind to me.”
