Salman Khan’s upcoming film Jai Ho was initially titled Mental but later the name was changed. At the launch of the trailer of the film, Salman Khan took some potshots at himself and said he changed the name because he didn’t want to be called Mental Khan.
We have an Intelligent Khan, Baadshah Khan and then there is Saif Ali Khan. I felt some people may start calling me Mental Khan though I wouldn’t have had any issues with that. But my dad was not in favour of the title, unko aitraaz tha… he felt Jai Ho sounded better,” said Sallu Bhai.
“I didn’t become a star because of my efforts. I still ride a bicycle and at times, travel by rickshaw. It’s just that I was born in this film family, you all are responsible for my star status,” Salman said, commenting on the film’s “people’s man” theme.
Produced by Eros International and Sohail Khan Productionz, Jai Ho releases January 24, 2014.
