Salman Khan explains Bollywood acting secrets

Q: Since your character in Kyon Ki… is not one of those ‘seen-him-before’ characters, was there any method to your acting?
A: What method? No method, I play it from my heart. If I can understand and relate to the character, then I take it on and that is how I play a character.[Interview with Salman Khan]

It is probably due to this “play by heart” methodology that Bobby Deol has a constant constipated look, Suneil Shetty looks like a water buffalo wearing Rayban, and Shah Rukh Khan is jumping like Tom Cruise on Oprah’s couch, independent of the character they are playing. As I am growing older, the tolerance for this methodology of acting is declining. But thanks Salman, for explaining this technique to us.

  1. JK… stop. You’ve got to put a warning label when posting stuff like this. I almost split coffee over my preccccccious laptop while laughing out!
    You even made me sign into TypeKey!

  2. Srijith, when I die I am going to heaven. For all the sins I have committed, I have watched enough Hindi & Rajnikanth movies to compensate.

  3. JK,
    I can’t understand the “Shah Rukh Khan is jumping like Tom Cruise on Oprah’s couch” part of it. Care to explain?
    “As I am growing older, the tolerance for this methodology of acting is declining. ” Very true. Have you seen “Bollywood Calling”? It’s a Nagesh Kukunoor movie. A must-see movie. Absolutely hilarious. Om Puri as a south indian producer of a bollywood movie is wild. Navin Nischol who is a megastar of the movie has a dialogue that is somewhat similar to what Salman Khan said.
