After doing adrenaline-driven films like 'Wanted', 'Dabangg', 'Bodyguard', and now 'Ek Tha Tiger', Salman Khan says doing romantic movies is much easier than action.
"There is a lot of pain and difficulty that an actor faces while doing action scenes. Like doing action in worst conditions in very hot or cold weather, wake up at wrong hours, fight in dirty places, sometimes in water, sometimes in the sun," Salman told.
"Do people really fight on roofs? Why can't they give us a good mattress to fall on? But no, they will always make you fall on a hard surface," he said.
Salman says he prefers doing romantic movies. "I am comfortable with romance. I am doing lot of romantic stuff but not on screen," he chuckled.
The 46-year-old actor is likely to feature in Sooraj Barjatya's next film.
However, co-actress and former girlfriend Katrina Kaif thinks the 'Dabangg' Khan gets bored soon of doing romantic scenes.
"Right now, the audience likes the action-romantic genre and it works well for him. Beyond a point I don't think Salman can handle the romantic scenes. He gets very bored by it," Katrina said.
Notably, Salman was suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, a nerve disorder causing intense pain in the face and he had gone to the US for a surgery in August last year. Soon after he started shooting for Yash Raj Films' 'Ek Tha Tiger'.
Asked if he was in two minds doing action scenes for the film, Salman says, "I am 'Tiger', I don't have an excuse."
He feels one has to be physically fit for doing action sequences. "I have been beaten up by school teachers, spanked and scolded by my parents in my childhood and growing up days, and all these things have been used in this film. I think one has to be physically fit to do all this," he said.
