Salman Khan is the Amitabh Bachchan of the 80s- Danny Denzongpa

Veteran actor Danny Denzongpa prior to the release of his movie ‘Jai Ho’ a Salman Khan starrer, speaks about how it was to work with Sallu and Sohail Khan in their home production. Danny said that he has earlier worked with Salman Khan in  ‘Sanam Bewafa’ when Sallu was a newcomer. “He was young, lean with deep set eyes and had just started building his body. He is very down to earth and is a very straight guy. You can find out whatever he is feeling by looking at him. If he doesn’t like you, his expression comes in his eyes. Whatever he says comes out from his heart. He is not tricky at all. ”




Danny further added that “after twenty years  he is the same guy, just a little older and a little bulked up. Absolutely same, despite the fact that he is such a big star. He calls me Dannysan. healways had problems with long dialogues in one shot and was great at one-liners. He still loves his one-liners. He has become such a huge star, that even if he sneezes people react to that, which is fantastic. He is like the Amitabh Bachchan of the 80s. He too is on the top and is number one to 10. All other stars come after 10. He is janta ka real star. Whatever he does people love. ”

Regarding Sohail Khan, Danny said, “In  my 40 year career, I have never worked with a director who is so quiet and soft spoken as Sohail. I kept thinking that this guy must be a very angry guy, as he can’t be so nice and wondered how a film director doesn’t scream and shout and get angry.
