Salman Khan is one honest man! Unlike most of the people in the Hindi film industry, he believes in calling spade a spade and says whatever lies in his heart. And in one of his recent interviews during the promotions of Race 3, he spoke about an actor who he thinks can replace Amitabh Bachchan, yes, you read that right!
To replace the Shahenshah of Hindi Cinema isn’t a joke, but if Salman has said it, he also has some reasons behind it. The actor in question is one of Salman’s Race 3 co-stars, Anil Kapoor, who has also collaborated with Salman in films like Biwi No.1, No Entry and Yuvvraaj. This is what he said about the actor, “If there’s one actor who can be Amitabh Bachchan’s replacement, it’s Anil Kapoor. He’s doing the kind of films Mr. Bachchan has been doing since Mohabbatein. He has no qualms about playing the role of a father on the big screen; he’s an actor and is ready to do all types of roles as an actor. People should see the range and diversity in Anil Kapoor’s work and learn from it.”
Well, that’s quite a big compliment! Race 3 is all set to release on the 15th of June in three different formats, 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
