It is raining remakes in Bollywood. While remaking south films was an ongoing trend, film-makers are now revisiting older classics and interpreting them in modern context. But some actors aren’t in favour of remakes because they feel like the original films should be left untouched. Salman Khan is one of those actors who doesn’t think too highly of remakes. However, he adds that one of his earliest films would make for a good remake as it would reach a lot more people.

Talking about it, he says, “I won’t remake my own films. But, if any of these new boys want to do, it’s this film called Love (1991). In fact, Varun [Dhawan; actor] was mentioning that it was a wonderful film. It was the first few films that I did and I remember that it didn’t do well. But that was a beautiful film and my character was wonderful.”

Remakes aside, the actor who is known to launch several fresh faces, also launched Sooraj Pancholi who made his debut with Hero (2015). Though Sooraj has not had a release after Hero, Salman says that he sees a lot of potential in the young actor and his talent.


“Sooraj is a fighter and he will do really well for himself and I have no doubts about that. Once you take on the responsibility of somebody, you can’t back off. His film, Hero film did superb business,” says Salman who will be next seen in Bharat.
