New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is the driving force behind 'Hero'. There is a lot of risk involved when launching new faces in Bollywood, but 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' Salman is not at all worried about such things.
Recently the 49-year-old actor was quoted as saying that "we are not going to step into something just for the sake of it or because someone has dates available at that time. Till the time I am not sure about the film I will not produce it. As a producer I will give preference to good scripts. Be it 'Hero,' 'Bajrangi...' or the next films that I produce".
He further added that, "I am never worried about the budget of the film. Whenever we brothers have made a movie, it has always gone over budget. 'Dabangg' was supposed to be made in two crores.
"Budget given to us for 'Lucky' was four crores, but it stretched to 22 crores at that time. Same goes with 'Hero'. It has gone twice but it is fine. For two-three crores we will not mess with the future of these kids or any one else."
Interestingly, the "Kick" star, who went all out promoting star kids Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, says he will not only launch industry kids.
"I will not only launch star kids. One of my friend's child Zahir, he is not from the film industry but we are making a film for him. I saw a spark in him and asked if he wants to do a movie for us? So, the next film whenever it happens we are considering Zahir for it," he said.
"Hero" that releases tomorrow was technically the first movie the actor took over as producer, but his last outing "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" released first.
