Macho man missing from today`s films: Salman Khan
Mumbai: Salman Khan, who won over the audiences with his performance as a tough cop in `Dabangg`, is consciously making efforts to bring the `macho man` back to Bollywood.
"I am consciously trying to get heroes, macho men back. I miss them. When my father wrote, the heroes used to be strong and central to the story, doing heroic things. I would go to the cinema and clap and whistle when I saw the hero on screen," Salman said.
"The macho hero seems to have vanished. I feel today people are also missing the macho man. I wanted to make sure people remember the hero when they leave the theatre. That is why I am doing such films," he said.
On why `Wanted` and `Dabangg` worked, Salman said, "`Wanted` worked because of the father-son equation in the film. After the father`s death, the film took a different angle. In the case of `Dabangg` it was surprising that
children caught on with the film. I just went back into my childhood, we wanted to see heroism and that`s what even children wanted to see in `Dabangg`."
Salman will be seen next in Anees Bazmee`s `Ready`, alongside Asin.
About the film, the 45-year-old actor says, "The movie is a mix of my earlier hits - `No Entry` and `Hum Aapke Hain Kaun`...now imagine Anees Bazmee directing `Hum Aapke Hai Kaun`."
`Ready` will release on June 3.
