Initially, when Ashutosh approached Salman for the film, nearly a month ago, Salman agreed to hear the director’s story.
After going through the script, Salman candidly refused to star in the film and said he only does hit films to make money.
“I don't do good films. I do hit films. I work in films that make money, not the ones that get awards,” said the 45-year-old actor.
In addition, Salman denied the movie due to their different working styles.
Salman clarified to Ashutosh, “I arrive in the afternoon and shoot at my own pace. You're used to working with other actors (read: Shah Rukh, Aamir) who reach the set on the dot at 9 am and work according to your pace.”
As if this wasn’t enough, Salman also suggested Ashutosh to sign in some other actor suitable for his film.
Interestingly, when Ashutosh was questioned about his meeting with Salman, Ashutosh denied meeting Salman and offering a film.
Ashutosh said, "How I wish that were true. I'd love to do a film with him. No such luck.”
Salman Khan is on cloud nine these days, as all his latest outings like ‘Dabangg’, ‘Ready’ and ‘Bodyguard’ received a thumbs-up at the box-office.
