Bollywood actor Salman Khan urges support for Ajay Devgn's movie 'Runway 34'
Bollywood actor won't be releasing his own film for Eid this year
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan revealed on Monday that he will release his next film on either Diwali or Christmas this year.
He did not divulge the details of the film's title, story or genre, but going by his announced projects in the pipeline, the film seems to be most likely 'Tiger 3', the third instalment of the hit spy franchise.
Speaking on the sidelines of a media event to promote the International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA), Khan said: "This time around I'm taking a break during Eid. Instead, Ajay Devgn will be coming up with his film 'Runway 34'. I would like all of you to show as much love for his film on Eid as you shower on mine."
Khan will host IIFA, which will be held at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi on May 20-21, along with Riteish Deshmukh and comedian-TV presenter Manish Paul.
When asked if he would ever switch over to OTT/streaming, he said: "Yes, I will come on the medium of OTT, but as a producer. There are a few projects that we are in talks for."
For him, cinemas have to be larger than life and the reason why films from South India are doing so well is their single point focus on heroism.
Khan said: "Films with heroism are a dying art in Bollywood. Today, Bollywood has moved away from films that were high on heroism. Sadly, heroism is not in vogue these days in Bollywood. Sad, because the mark of Bollywood has always been heroism, there's an emotional connect with the hero of the film."
