Salman Khan will be seen as a Sardar for the first time in his film career in Samir Karnik’s Heroes. And unlike recent movies with heroes portraying a Sikh character sporting French beard, Sallu actually grew his beard long enough to fit into the role of a Sikh perfectly.
Sallu who is a chain smoker also stopped smoking whenever he donned the Sikh getup.
Producer of Heroes, Vikas Kapoor revealed, “Salman respects all religion and follows them religiously. He knew that Sikhs generally don’t smoke as they are prohibited by their religion. Thus taking that into consideration Salman decided not to smoke during the shoot of this film.”
Vikas adds, “I remember sometimes he used to spend 10 hours in the same get up but didn’t smoke at all. Salman did it out of respect for the Sikh religion. Apart from his attire, “Salman also grew his beard to make his get up look real. His respect for the turban made him stay away from cigarettes.”
Heroes also starrs, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Sohail Khan, Mithun Chakraborty, Dino Morea, Priety Zinta, Amrita Arora and Riya Sen apart from Sallu.
Now should we take away the Singh Is Kinng title from Akki and give it to Sallu?
