Salman Khan, who will soon be seen in his much awaited movie “Tubelight”, stated as an actor, he has limitations and filming for the Kabir Khan directorial was an emotional journey.
Salman added, “I am a limited performer and everybody knows that, but because Sohail was playing my brother, maybe that’s why I was feeling very emotional.”
Sharing his experience of working with his brother Sohail Khan, who is essaying the role of his character’s brother in “Tubelight”, Salman told media here: “The film was an emotional journey and I felt emotionally drained after shooting some of the scenes that narrate that my brother is no more.”
“In fact, during the dubbing of the film also, being a grown up man, my tears were coming up… it was really bad! And coming from us (Pathans) is really bad,” the Sultan star said .
“When I was in jail, one day my mother, father and one of my uncles came to see me there, and seeing my condition, my uncle started crying. So my father told him, ‘kaise Pathan ho yaar tum, roh rahe ho'(what kind of a Pathan are you? You are crying!),” said Salman.
Salman also talked about late veteran actor Om Puri, who too essayed a role in the film and actress Reema Lagoo who played his on-screen mother in “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun..!” and “Hum Saath Saath Hain”.
He also felt so bad for them. “It is very sad. We lost VD (Late actor Vinod Khanna) a few months ago, then I got to know that Reema ji is also no more with us, it is really sad. I think within the last couple of months, I lost some very close people,” said Salman.
“Tubelight” is all set to release on June 23. Salman and Sohail also showed the trailer of their film to their mother Salma Khan on Wednesday.
“This time she will pray more as both of her sons are working on the film,” Salman said. The actor was present at the trailer launch of the film along with Kabir Khan, Sohail and music director Pritam.
