We are proud of Sal­man: So­hail Khan

Ac­tor-film­maker So­hail Khan (right) finds his brother, ac­tor Sal­man Khan, ex­tremely hard-work­ing. “My fa­ther (Salim Khan) says that in In­dia and the world there can only be one Sal­man Khan. We’re proud of him. He’s hard­work­ing and we wish that he con­tin­ues his good run through­out,” says So­hail.

The film­maker nowa­days is in an introspective mode. Freaky Ali, his last pro­ject as a di­rec­tor, didn’t do well and ac­cord­ing to So­hail, he is fig­ur­ing out the rea­son be­hind the fail­ure. “Freaky Ali’s fail­ure was a learn­ing.

As mak­ers, we thrive for good and hit films. A hit film is a good film and a flop film is a bad film. Like suc­cess, we must ac­cept our fail­ures too. You make a film for the au­di­ence and if they haven’t then some­thing must have gone wrong. Hon­estly, I’ve lacked in Freaky Ali and I’m try­ing to cor­rect the mis­takes in my next projects,” he says.

Prais­ing ac­tor Nawazud­din Sid­diqui, who played the lead in the film, So­hail adds, “But I must con­fess that I had a won­der­ful time work­ing with Nawaz. He’s a fab­u­lous ac­tor who knows what is re­quired out of him. I’d love to work with him again.” Mean­while, So­hail has fin­ished shoot­ing his next film star­ring Sal­man and is busy script­ing two films. Ask him about the cur­rent trend of biopics, he says, he’d love to do it and adds, “Biopics aren’t easy. You need to get into the skin of the char­ac­ter to avoid mis­takes.”
