'If I write, it would be a tribute to my father'

Having won admirers for his painting skills, Bollywood heart-throb Salman Khan says he would like to write a tribute to his father Salim Khan, if he ever turns an author.

Replying to a query on whether he had any plans to turn an author, Salman said, "Everything is possible in this lifetime! Who knows what could happen tomorrow!"

"If at all I write, it will definitely be a tribute to my father Salim Khan, he told PTI.

The actor is playing Chetan Bhagat's role in Hello which is an on screen adaptation of the latter's best-selling novel One night @ the Call Centre. The movie is a tale about the events that takes place in the lives of six persons, working in a call centre, one night.

"When Atul got me the script I had already read the book, so it was only a matter of which part I will play. I preferred Chetan's role, that of the narrator. In the film I am actually the narrator of the whole story that unfolds overnight," he said.

On being asked, whether he took any advice from Chetan for the role, Salman said, "Chetan is a very talkative person. Its difficult to not listen to him."

Directed by Atul Agnihotri, Hello, which apart from Salman also stars Katrina Kaif, Sharman Joshi, Gul Panag, Sohail Khan, Eesha Koppikar, Amrita Arora and Arbaz Khan, will hit the silver-screen on October 10.

Apart from Hello, Salman will also be seen Subhash Ghai's musical Yuvraaj and Samir Karnik's Heroes later this year.
