The Real Salman Khan
I couldn’t stop myself from blogging this. During the promotion of Ek Tha Tiger, I came across many interviews of Salman Khan. It is quite widely known that he’s a very arrogant man, however, after watching of one of his interviews I also found out that he’s a supreme male chauvinist.
Salman and Katrina were getting interviewed by Anupama Chopra; one of the most famous author, journalist and a critic. Of course, it was a promotional stunt by Ek Tha Tiger team, but it was amusing to see how eccentric Salman’s behavior is amongst ladies. Firstly, Salman has zero communication skills and secondly he’s quite illiterate when it comes to conversing in English. Which, by the way is fine, as long as he knows Hindi; which is our national language. However, while examining his past record, I failed to understand how he conceived relationship with foreign ladies when he lacks in speaking English.
So, Salman somehow managed with the mix of English and Hindi verbiage throughout the show. In between he felt like having Green Tea and asked the camera man to get him some. Um…You’re being aired on national television! Ever heard of something called manners?!
And then each time Anupama asked a question to Katrina, he would butt in to speak on behalf of Katrina, just so he can make a male dominating statement.
It was quite astonishing to hear that he thinks male actors will prevail but female actors will retire once they lose their charm and get old. This statement not only appalled Anupama but also made Katrina to look up and raise her eyebrows. To this, Katrina commented what if you retire and I stay on forever in the industry? And Salman egotistically looked at her and said, ‘yeah we’ll see, how you’ll survive…’
Now we know why Aishwariya left him and Katrina is running away from him… *rolls eyes*
Started my day with an article on Social Networking and ended up on Salman Khan! I will publish ‘Social Networking’ article on Monday.
