Is Salman Khan miffed with Chopras?
Prachi Kadam (DNA; June 16, 2012)
It’s every actor’s dream to star in or at least do one film with veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra or his banner. But in a career spanning almost 23 years, one actor apparently was not kicked on working with them, and this is Salman Khan. The Dabangg actor has always been known to set the rules, and is not really the kind to toe the line on anyone else’s whims or diktats. Apparently he did make an exception with Ek Tha Tiger (ETT), his first film with the Chopras. But if sources close to the star are to be believed, then it’s likely to be his last film too with the banner.
Says a source on condition of anonymity,“Salman won’t work with the Chopra banner again. He dislikes the rules and regulations set by the production house, and made up his mind to not work with the banner again, when he and Katrina (Kaif) were asked to fly to Bangkok to reshoot a small scene. Salman, apparently, felt that a scene as small as that could’ve easily been done in Mumbai or somewhere close. The allure of the production house dimmed and he lost interest in it. He also let his family know his thoughts on the entire experience, especially since he took on the film on his father’s insistence.”
The Chopra banner has a formidable reputation when it comes discipline and setting the rules, but buzz is that they did make an exception for Salman, and bent some of its rules as well. However, when it came to certain issues, they stood their ground. A source informs, “Salman wanted his favourite composers Sajid-Wajid to score the music for ETT, but apparently the production house did not entertain the request. Apparently, this too did not go down well with Salman. He later insisted that the first promotional track be done by the composer duo. Both the incidents have firmed up his decision to not work with the banner again.”
