Salman Khan doesn’t like rehearsalsJune 4th, 2008 - 5:02 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 4 (IANS) Bollywood star Salman Khan, who is gearing up for his television debut with reality game show “Dus Ka Dum”, starting June 6, says he is not the type to rehearse for his roles. “I don’t like to rehearse too much. I have never prepared myself for my roles,” Salman wrote in his blog.
He also said that he is neither aware of the number of acting schools that exist nor does he belong to any acting school. But he believes in the concept of a method school.
“Where actors go to the places and watch people whom they have to portray,” said the actor who gave hits like, “Maine Pyar Kiya”, “Saajan”, “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” and “Partner”.
He added: “They do this and all kinds of things to get into the skin of the character. According to the thumb rule of this school, I should have spent months in a lunatic asylum to portray my role in ‘Tere Naam’.”
Salman wrote that he may not be a great actor, but what gives him satisfaction is that he has never copied any established school of acting.
“Dilip Kumar saab has influenced all actors and I do admire him immensely. But I haven’t copied him even while performing the role of a loser in love. In ‘Tere Naam’, I portrayed agony as I feel it. It comes naturally to me. These reflections just reconfirm my faith that I should and would only be myself.”
Salman also promises to be his true self in “Dus Ka Dum”.
Along with his schedule for the television show, Salman is also busy shooting for Boney Kapoor’s “Wanted” and Subhash Ghai’s “Yuvraaj”.
