A star without suggestions is brain dead, says ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ director Kabir Khan
Mumbai: Director Kabir Khan, who is looking forward to the release of `Ek Tha Tiger`, admits that there were "issues" between him and leading man Salman Khan but says if an actor does not have any suggestions to offer then he is brain dead.
"When we started there were lots of discussions on how we would go ahead. Everybody cannot be on the same page, as two people visualise things differently. Yes, there were issues.. you want to call it interferences or problems or part and parcel of the creative process, is something I cannot say," Kabir told PTI.
"There can never be a film without issues. There has to be issues, discussions and arguments about characters and scenes. Only then you get a good film. For me the issues are very important and a part of the filmmaking process," he said.
The director admitted he used suggestions from Salman considering his 24 years of experience in the industry.
"I used to reach out to Salman for suggestions, because I feel if your main star is not giving you at least ten suggestions a day then you are in trouble. As either the star is brain dead or he is not interested in the project and doing it just for money," Kabir said.
"Any two creative people will not look at a scene in same way. It took 15-20 days for us (Salman and me) to come on the same page. On day one, our vision was farther, the more we shot the closer the vision became," he said.
Kabir feels Salman`s presence in the film will definitely help them get a good opening at the box office but the rest depends on the content.
