I was not happy with my film ‘Veer’: Salman Khan

Salman Khan is known for delivering power packed performances on screen and ultimately super hits. The actor says he has now also started looking at the creative aspects of the film to ensure perfection.


When I put my foot down sometimes, I hope I am not taking advantage of my stardom and that’s a big guilt. Eventually, what the audience first watches is only me in the poster, so I will be held responsible for everything.

Salman said.

So we also have to see that in just being polite, the film doesn’t go for a toss. Aamir (Khan) does it very correctly. Now I have started making it clear right in the beginning. I make sure that the final cut goes with my approval. After ‘Veer’, I have started doing this.

he said. 

Salman, who wrote the story for his film ‘Veer’, says that he wasn’t satisfied with final film. He had tried to cut down the duration of the film and it dd not work out.

I was not happy with ‘Veer’ when they showed me the film. I cut down the film to one hour and 55 minutes, and eventually they released the film as a two hour and 30 minute-film, which is not a done thing. They thought they will get away with that, but they didn’t and I was very upset with the fact because I wrote its script and I knew if it has to be that long, then I need those 18 days of shoot because I needed the high points.

The scale of the film was very big. So one hour and 55 minutes was a perfect length for it. Till the time it is interesting, it is fine, but the film has to hold (the audience).

he added.

Salman’s next release is Dabangg 2, on December 21st.
