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.
