We Don’t Need Superheroes: Salman Khan Encourages Slum Children

“We don’t need a mosquito to bite us or wear our underwear outside.”

MUMBAI:  At an event organized for slum children, Salman Khan spoke about his image as a superhero, a ‘bhai’ and helped bust a few myths for his young fans. “It is a nice thought, but I hope this doesn’t make me into a caricature. We don’t need a mosquito to bite us or wear our underwear outside, we Indians don’t need superheroes. In our culture, no one wants to see failure.”

Children are crazy about Salman Khan and his films. Possibly because Salman chooses roles that would appeal even to children. “I should have got Sajid-Wajid with me, they would have played for these children and things would have gone to a new level altogether. I’m hoping I can use the talent of these children at some gig in the future.”

Talking about his previous film ‘Tere Naam’, Salman asked people to watch the film but to not follow the role he played. “The character is a loser. A girl leaves him and he keeps on crying… move on, there are other girls.”

On the image of ‘bhai’, he says “I don’t take terms like bhai too seriously. If you start thinking about it, it doesn’t look natural”.
