Bollywood superstar Salman Khan thinks kissing scenes are not necessary in a film. There were reports that the 49-year-old actor edited the 30 minutes including a kissing scene from Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty’s debut film “Hero”.
On this Salman Khan says, “There is no kissing scene in the film. We wanted to put one but they (filmmakers) refused. I have not done kissing scene (generally)… how can I ask them (Sooraj and Athiya) to do it. I don’t think they also wanted to do a kissing scene,” he said.
The film “Hero” has tag line “Rebel, love and freedom”.
When asked about it, Salman said, “My contribution to Hero. I have contribution towards love, freedom and some what for rebel.”
He thinks a film has to be good for it to be successful, it (film) doesn’t need established face to promote newcomers.
“Sooraj Barjatya (director of ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’) at that time was not an established face but he produced Salman Khan in the industry. It is about how good the film and its music is.. The audience response makes film successful and make stars,” he added.
The “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” star feels at times established stars promoting newcomers could work against the movie.
“It (established actor promoting newcomers) could also turn other way round Salman is producing the film but not acting in it. It could work against is,” he said.
“If Karan Johar or Aditya Chopra would launch newcomers then people would to see that film of newcomers. I am here promoting is a big scare,” he added.

But as a producer Salman did not leave any stone unturn.
“I did not care about the budget… If cared I would have made it disastrous. Their (Sooraj and Athiya) journey starts from this film so we did not want to leave any stone unturned. As a hero I will do work for another 35 …40 years. .. It should not happen that people point fingers at me,” he said.
The “Hum Apke Hai Kaun” star is known for launching newcomers.
“The next boy I am going to launch is not a star kid. But he has potential. It is not because they (newcomers) are star kids…they are good in their work. They happen to born in the industry like me. I was son of a writer… Ajay Devgn was son of a fight master. Also there are lot of star kids who have not done well,” he adds.
