Salman Khan addresses religious differences in Bollywood


MUMBAI: Salman Khan’s got a thing to say about religious differences in the film industry. At the 15th Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, the Tiger Zinda Hai actor opened up about the treatment of people from various religious backgrounds working together in Bollywood.
“My mother’s Hindu, my father’s Muslim, I call myself insaan; human being,” he began before delving into details.
“The spotboy to the lightman, to the heroes to the heroine to the directors to the producers, nobody feels like that [unequal], everyone works together – Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, there is nothing, no feeling of superiority or inferiority,” said Salman.
He added: Even the spotboy, the drivers, the electricians, everyone has been given that utmost amount of respect.”
Salman Khan’s upcoming film Tiger Zinda Hai alongside Katrina Kaif is slated to hit theatres Dec 22.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha are in Delhi for the much talked about Da-Bangg tour in Delhi on Sunday evening. Preparations to set the stage at Delh’s Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Delhi on fire had been going on for a while now, amidst which, Sonakshi took out time to rope in Salman for a fun photo with a really funny caption. “He loved my outfit so much he tried to copy it. Who wore it better?” tweeted Sonakshi, who appeared amused by her own creativity on social media. We’ll just explain what’s going on. On Saturday, Sonakshi was spotted attending a Da-Bangg tour press con wearing a grey wrap-around dress.
That’s when Sonakshi happened to spot Salman, who must have been nearby on sets or been prepping for the press con or simply chilling in a bathrobe, and thought they were “twinning” in similar (but very different) wardrobe choices.
