MUMBAI: Salman Khan is upset that his name is being dragged into the Jiah Khan suicide case. Salman Khan told TOI, “I was not even aware of Suraj and Jiah’s relationship. I got to know of it through a news magazine.” The actor said he has never had any conversation with Aditya Pancholi asking him to intervene in Suraj’s relationship matters, and finds the allegation ridiculous. The actor, who said his sympathy is with the family that has lost a daughter, added that he needed to think about his own life and not interfere in others’.
Suraj Pancholi is acting in Salman Khan’s home production which is a remake of 1980s’ hit ‘Hero’. A family friend of the Pancholi said, “Suraj had been training for 10 hours a day for his new film. He would leave home by 9 in the morning for gymnastics training in Kandivli. He would return home for lunch, go to the gym, followed by a dancing class. His day would end with martial arts.”
It may be recalled that Jiah Khan’s mother Rabia has mentioned in her statement to the police that Pancholi was upset with Suraj about his relationship with Jiah. She had said that Pancholi had spoken to Salman Khan about it, who allegedly tried to dissuade him. Suraj, according to the actor’s mother, had told Salman that he was in love with Jiah and Salman was fine with it.
Salman Khan, though, has rubbished all the claims.

Prabhu Deva, who directed Salman Khan in Wanted and took his career to new heights claims that producers and directors have no issues even if Salman Khan comes late on the sets.
On being asked about his Wanted actor Salman Khan’s reportedly habit of coming late on the sets of his films, Prabhu Deva said, “Why does everyone talk about Salman Khan’s timings? Only one thing I would like to say that in last few years he has given many films. If he would have been coming late then he wouldn’t have managed to give so many hits.”
“Producers and directors are ok even if he comes late and when he comes late he compensate by working for more hours. His films are coming every five months and the actor works hard for it,” added the director.
Prabhu Deva also defends people in Bollywood and claimed that they are professionals. “Everyone on the sets of Rowdy Rathore used to be on schedule. Even on the sets of Ramaiya Vasta Vaiyaveteran actors like Randhir Kapoor, Vinod Khanna and Poonam Dhillon used to be on time,” concluded Prabhu Deva.

Producer Krishika Lulla claims that established stars know their job, but at the end talent is very important for newcomers.
On being asked about her take on newcomers, Krishika said, “There are few newcomers in the industry whom I would like to tell that work hard and don’t give attitude without establishing yourself.”
“Varun Dhawan seems a very promising newcomer in Bollywood. The kind of success established stars get is only because they have worked hard. Salman’s success is believable because he worked so hard in his initial years,” added Krishika
When asked about the difference between established stars and newcomers, Krishika said, “Established stars know their job and some of them never look at the computer. They have immense confidence and with new people it takes time.”
Krishika Lulla is excited and confident about upcoming film Raanjhanaa which will have Sonam Kapoor and South actor and Kolaveri Di fame Dhanush, who is new to Bollywood.
