When ‘Being Human’ Salman Khan fumed as ‘Tiger’
Mumbai: Yash Raj Films’ ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is all set to make a splash on the silver screen on August 15 and lead actor Salman Khan has been on his toes promoting his first venture with the banner.
The actor, who has been touring the length and breadth of the country for ETT promotions, was bombarded with questions at the capital recently that irked him a lot.
Salman and filmmaker Kabir Khan wore T-Shirts that had the actor’s NGO logo and that provoked reporters to ask him if it was a publicity stunt to indirectly promote his organization.
And this irked the actor. Talking to a daily, Salman said, “I’m so fed up.
Ek toh round the clock promotions with no time to breathe, and then the advice that any charity work at this time will look like a publicity gimmick. How frustrating is that?”
“Even when I campaigned for the release of Sarabjit Singh who’s lodged in Pakistani jail, I only had good intentions. But I’ve had to put that on hold because I’m being told that, close to the release of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, it’ll look like a gimmick. Ab kya karun, if I take it up after 5-6 months, you’ll say it’s a publicity stunt for ‘Dabangg2’. Bloody frustrating,” the actor added.
