Mumbai: Kabir Khan, who is the director of Ek Tha Tiger, says that Salman Khan is a legendary actor and only he could play the role of Tiger so brilliantly in Bollywood. Kabir Khan also said that Tiger Salman Khan sab ka baap hai (he is bigger than anybody else).
Talking to a leading website, Kabir Khan said, "If you call any other guy in Bollywood a ‘tiger', it sounds very cheesy. But with Salman, you can be sure that woh sab ka baap hai (he is bigger than anybody else)."
Kabir Khan further added, "With Salman on board, I didn't have to spend much time establishing that he is a tiger. Just five minutes into the film, and you will realize that woh sab ka baap hai (he is bigger than anybody else). A film like ETT needed a legendary star like Salman to do justice to the spy that the film is loosely based upon. He would have been overcast for a film like Kabul Express, but Ek Tha Tiger needed Salman."
Well, we agree Kabir indeed Salman Khan is the baap of Bollywood!
