Bollywood’s bhai aka Salman Khan is a shy person but when it comes to shooting, he is a dedicated actor and can do anything for his character. So while he was shooting the akhada sequence , he arrived in langot, and you won’t believe that at that time he was in front of 6000 junior artists! According to the director Ali Abbas Zafar, Salman Khan though it would be a very small wrestling match with atleast 50 or 60 people around the set. But, crowd of 6000 people were watching him in langot.
Ali also said, ‘Then he called me and said that its cheating because I never told him that so many people would be present on the set.’ However, Salman did that sequence in front of 6000 people and that too just in langot.
This akhada shot is meant to be the Salman’s introduction scene in the film and the shooting of this scene was done in Film city, Mumbai. So when Salman did walk out onto set, he did so in a bathrobe, to a calm and contained crowd. After the first day of the eight-day long sequence, Salman was comfortable in his skin.
