|The seed of this film germinated in Salman Khan’s head decades ago. Inspired by the Russian novel ‘Taras Bulba’ since childhood, Salman Khan penned a love story called Veer and spruced it up with an added angle of war and father-son relationship in the backdrop. He wrote the story way back in 1990 when Salman was working on his film ‘Baaghi’.
The actor reveals all this and more on the movie’s blog (http://veerblogs.erosentertainment.com) which was launched today to coincide with the birthday of Salman’s father Salim Khan.
According to the film’s producer Vijay Galani, Salman deliberately chose this day to launch the film’s blog to honour his dad, who has, in fact, seen the rushes of ‘Veer’ and loved it.
But surprisingly, it was Salim Khan who cautioned Salman against making this film.
“My biggest fear for Veer was that my father had asked me not to make this film! But when he finally saw the film, he came out saying … “IT IS OUTSTANDING!” which meant the most to me,” Salman blogged.
The superstar also went on to reveal that in the film, set in 1875, he plays a fearless warrior from the Pindhari clan.
Salman will continue to blog about the film on regular basis until its release on January 22 next year.
