Salman says no to small town promotional tour
"It's not about crowd control. There are women and kids and in their excitement, the men try to take advantage of the fact that there are women in the crowd. Then there are kids and senior citizens who are pushed around. God forbid, if something happens, it comes on to us," the 46-year-old said in an interview.
"If someone gets injured, that's Ok but God forbid if someone dies in these mishaps, then the responsibility falls on us. Then if our security guard pushes someone to protect us, then that also becomes a big issue. So it's better to stay away from all this," he added.
Meanwhile, Salman, who is in an excellent phase of his career where anything he touches turns to gold, says the credit for it goes to those who work behind the scenes to make an excellent final product.
"I have just been lucky. There are people who have worked very hard on their own craft that has made me reach this phase of my life. There are films that have already been made and have done OK and have been great for me, lots of people have worked hard on them," said Salman.
"Like now, Kabir (Khan) has worked really hard on his script and direction. Adi (Aditya Chopra) and Yash Raj have put in a lot of creativity and money in Tiger ('Ek Tha Tiger'). So when all these things come together on screen, I am going to be hugely benefited by the success of Friday," added Salman.
Directed by Kabir Khan, 'Ek Tha Tiger' stars Salman in the role of a spy while Katrina Kaif will be seen opposite Salman. The movie hits theaters August 15.
