The Radhe actor said that his father had easy access to the film fraternity but he didn’t help him in getting access to the films.


While narrating the incident, Salman had said, “My father Salim Khan had access to producers. They all used to come and visit our house. I wanted to become an actor at that time, so I approached him and asked him to talk to one of the producers.”

According to reports in DNA, Salman said that his father refuted his request by saying ‘no’. The 54-year-old actor said, “He said no, I can ask them to cast you, but then you would never know what success tastes like. What is the use of such a talent if you have to pitch it to others? Let your talent speak for yourself. They would automatically come and visit you.”


Thanks to Salim’s inspiring words that Salman took seriously and became a superstar. Now, he is ruling the film industry and also opened his production house called Salman Khan Films. Salman has produced films like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Tiger Zinda Hai, Bharat, and Dabangg 3.
