Music honcho Bhushan Kumar says Salman is one of the most emotional men in B-wood.
The Salman Khan-Bhushan Kumar bonding is more than a decade old. Bhushan tells us that they came together thirteen years ago during Salman’s ” Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya”, a film whose music his father, Gulshan Kumar, was promoting.
“Half way through the film, I took over,” recalls Bhushan, “From then on, Salman and I have been inseparable.” The association began as a professional one with the two of them working on ” Tere Naam” and several other projects, right until their latest flick, the upcoming “Ready”. “Soon we became close friends,” says Bhushan.
He adds, “Salman is all heart. Once he gets into a relationship with someone, it is for keeps. He has been asking 90% of his producers to give the music of his films to us at T-Series.” Bhushan is proud of the fact that when people have to wait in long queues to get Salman to greenlight their projects, he managed to complete his film in seven months flat. “That is a record,” says Bhushan, “And I’m grateful to Salman for this. He treats me like a younger brother and even calls me by my nick name, Nannu, something few people know about.”
Bhushan says he remains indebted to Salman for the kind of cooperation he gave during “Ready”. “He has treated our film like his own home production. I can’t tell you how it feels to have a superstar, or should I say, super power, backing you. My association with Salman on this film has won me more respect than I have got in my entire life. People have really been treating me differently,” says the producer. TOI
