Inside the quiet Yash Raj studio, on the fourth floor of its main block, there is sudden excitement as Salman Khan walks into the conference room on Wednesday evening. He enters calmly and casually struts his way towards the makeshift stage, readily giving autographs. The stage is set for the Screen Preview of Ek Tha Tiger but Khan doesn't do the routine. Visibly tired after a long day, he doesn't hesitate to get off the cushioned seat and sits on the stage instead.
In Kabir Khan-directed Ek Tha Tiger, scheduled to release on Wednesday, Khan plays the role of a RAW agent, Tiger, in love with a suspect Pakistani scientist Zoya, played by Kaif. According to Khan, though the action in the film was gruelling, he preferred doing most of them on his own. "It's not like old Hindi films, where it was easier to cheat the audience with body doubles," he says. The conversation remains mostly casual, and the questions gravitate more towards Khan, his Being Human organisation, the Rs 100-crore club and the way he dances.
Wearing a white Being Human tee and a pair of denims himself, Khan sounds content with the emergence of the charity-brand that revolves around his star persona. But he is cautious of not overdoing its promotion. "It would be taking it too far to wear Being Human clothes in my films," he says when asked if he will appear in the upcoming film in the brands' clothes.
He disinterestedly talks about the 'Rs 100-crore club', of which he has become a prominent member; with his last three films Dabbang, Ready and Bodyguard having crossed the 'magic figure'. "Ticket prices have increased, and my fans, who were born with Maine Pyaar Kiya are 22 years old now," he says, jokingly.
