|Salman Khan recently stirred a storm in a teacup by his acerbic comments on director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his film Guzaarish.
Bhansali is a hurt man nowadays. At an award function recently Salman, his good friend, had made insulting remarks about the film-maker and his latest creation Guzaarish. Salman had called Bhansali an opportunist who makes film on disabled people to make money but doesn’t donate a dime for charity. He had even mocked Guzaarish and said that not even a macchhar (mosquito) went to see the film, while at the same time Sallu alluded to the super success of his own film Dabangg.
While Bhansali has chosen silence over retaliation, Hrithik Roshan, the lead star of Guzaarish, has jumped in for Bhansali’s defence. Despite Salman being many years senior, Hrithik has a few sensible words of advice for Khan.
“In my opinion a hero never gloats. When you are super successful...this is the time one should use to turn even enemies into friends...just give love, not laugh at others. By the time I finish this sentence, I have already forgiven his (Salman’s) words,” Hrithik is quoted as saying by a tabloid.
Hrithik’s response is without rancour. Hope Salman would reply in the same vein.
