Salman Khan says he is not keen on trying for Hollywood

10612947_703367039751502_6019569242522414658_nSuperstar Salman Khan says he is not keen on trying for Hollywood due to the language factor and the fact that it will take time to establish a reputation there.

“I like to work in India a lot and I like to deliver dialogues in Hindi. Suddenly, after Hindi dialogues since so many years, if I say dialogues in English, it would look a bit weird on me. I’m very happy here,” Salman said when asked if he would be interested in Hollywood.

“They (Hollywood) work extremely hard but we don’t need to work that hard here. I’ll have to establish respect again and when I’m already receiving so much respect here then why? We work for respect, it’s taken so many years to earn respect here, so I don’t see any point,” the “Dabangg” actor said at a press meet for success of his film “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”.

The question was prompted by the filmmakers’ claims that the movie’s opening collections in the US were better than Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie starrer “By the Sea”.

While the Rs.100 crore, Rs.200-crore and Rs.300 crore clubs are coveted in Bollywood, top Hollywood grossers easily earn more than $1 billion.

Salman feels the Indian film industry needs to grow to the Hollywood level.

“The Hindi film industry should grow so much that there should not be any comparison between them and us. Our film has broken the records of films there and that is a moment of joy for everyone. And that’s what we want, that everyone should be happy,” he said.

But Salman didn’t avoid Hollywood completely.

“If it’s a film related to us (Indians), I might do it but I don’t have any interest or craze for it.”

“Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, also starring Sonam Kapoor and directed by Sooraj Barjatya, has earned almost Rs.130 crore in the opening weekend.
