Mumbai: Even as critics and audience have given thumbs up to Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ calling this magnum opus a celluloid experience which ushers a new trend in the history of Indian cinema. Surprisingly, Bollywood megastar Salman Khan is not too keen to watch the film.
The actor informed that he has not seen the film yet. He said, “I am busy promoting my film. I don’t have time to watch other’s films.”
Interestingly, the part 2 of ‘GOW’ which released yesterday has a character called Definite who is a fan of Salman Khan. So, is this Anurag’s way of extending an olive branch to Salman after their major fallout over ‘Dabangg’ sequel. For the uninitiated, Anurag’s brother was ousted from making the sequel after Abhinav Kashyap’s (director of ‘Dabangg’) relationship went sour with the Khan brothers.
But, Salman Khan doesn’t seem too interested.
He said, “I do clean films, straight out. Mujhe meri picture main gaali vaali rakhne ki koi zaroorat nahi padti. (I don’t need to use abusive language in my films.) I just want to do my kind of cinema. I just want our filmmakers to make movies with our culture and value system.”
Asked him if he plans to watch it in the near future he shoots back saying, “No. I watch films with friends and family. But I can’t take my family to watch that film. Even though everybody is grown up and mature in my family. And we all are adults and aware and very chilled out but I don’t I think I will want to see that film with them.”
Even though Salman doesn’t seem to be in a mood to forgive and forget, however he gives his best wishes to the film. He adds, “If this film does well, it’s good. I will be very happy. I hope every film does well.”
