Salman Khan said that he is not keen on trying for Hollywood because of the language factor and the fact that it will take time to build a reputation there.
“I like to work in India a lot and I like to deliver dialogues in Hindi. Suddenly after Hindi dialogues for so many years if I say dialogues in English, it would look a bit weird. I’m very happy here,” Salman said when asked if he would be interested in Hollywood.
“They (Hollywood) work extremely hard but we don’t need to work that hard here. I’ll have to establish respect again and when I’m already receiving so much respect here then why? We work for respect; it’s taken so many years to earn respect here; so I don’t see any point,” the Dabangg actor said.
The question was prompted by the filmmakers’ claims that the movie’s opening collections in the US were better than Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie’s By the Sea.
Salman feels that the Indian film industry still needs to grow a lot.
“The Hindi film industry should grow so much that there should not be any comparison between them and us. Our film has broken the records of films there and that is a moment of joy for everyone. And that’s what we want that everyone should be happy,” he said.
“If it’s a film related to us (Indians), I might do it but I don’t have any interest or craze for it,” Salman added.
