Mumbai: Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur
got a thumbs up from critics, audience liked it, this is also one of the rarest films which got a standing ovation at the Cannes film festival but actor Salman Khan refuses to watch it.
The film that promises to change the language of Indian cinema has adult contents, apparently to add to the authenticity of the story. In a recent interview, Salman said, "I do clean films, straight out. I don't need to use abusive language in my films. I just want to do my kind of cinema. I just want our filmmakers to make movies with our culture and value system. No. I watch films with friends and family. But I can't take my family to watch that film. Even though everybody is grown up and mature in my family. And we all are adults and aware and very chilled out but I don't I think I will want to see that film with them."
Salman might not even watch the film alone because of his jam-packed schedule. He is busy promoting Ek Tha Tiger
which is slated to release on August 15.
Reportedly, the reason behind this not so good relationship between the two is director brother Abhinav Kashyap's exit from Dabangg
sequel. Abhinav, who directed Dabangg
is shown a way out by Salman's actor kin Arbaaz Khan.
Interestingly, one of the characters in GOW II, named "Definite", happens to be Salman's diehard fan. Is it a way to extend a hand of friendship towards mighty Bollywood Khan or it is merely to make the character look more legitimate as Salman has lager fan following out of metros and Anurag's film is based in a small town.
