MUMBAI: Salman Khan said recently that the era of superstars will never end, but the next generation must work hard.
In active promotion of his upcoming release 'Antim: The Final Truth,' superstar Salman Khan is currently in the spotlight. Salman Khan plays a Sikh police inspector tasked with cleaning the city of Mumbai of gangsters. The main antagonist in the movie is Aayush Sharma, his brother-in-law. The movie will be released on Friday, November 26.
During a recent media interaction, the 'Radhe' star said that the era of superstars is forever, but the coming generations must work hard to make a name for themselves, as stardom won't be handed over to them.
In response to the question of whether the rise of OTT will mean the end of superstars, the actor appeared to be amused by the question and replied, "We will go, somebody else will come up. I don’t think that era of stars will go. It will never go. It will always be there. This younger generation will have their superstardom. I have been hearing this for the last four generations, ‘ki yeh last generation hain' (this is the last generation of stars)." He even added that stardom now depends on a lot of things such as an actor's selection of movies and their real-life personality.
“We will not leave it for the younger generation to take it easy. We will not hand it over to them. ‘Mehnat karo bhai, pachas plus me mehnat kar hi rahe hain, toh aap bhi mehnat karo (work hard, we are working hard at the age of 50+, you should also work hard)", Salman said, who made his debut in the Hindi film industry in 1988 and continues to produce box-office hits like Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai, and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
'Antim: The Final Truth' is a remake of the 2018 Marathi crime-drama 'Mulshi Pattern' and is directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. It is produced by Salman himself under his banner Salman Khan Films.
