Famous script writer Salim Khan says that his son Salman Khan was not serious about his career earlier. Salim Khan also says that Salman Khan has signed many films in the past just to oblige his friends.
Salim Khan told a leading daily, "I have always said that he had not delivered what he promised, or was capable of, till now. I always told him that he had to be serious and that the moment he became serious he would go where he is today. Salman always had it in him - he was credible in the fight sequences, could dance well, and was good at romance, comedy and drama."
Salim Khan further added, "By that I mean that he took undue risks. There are so many times jab ussne dosti mein film kar li (accepted films to oblige friends), or did films because someone told him a sob story. He has done a record number of guest roles that did not save the films but added flops to his name, because the moment he came in for a cameo that needed a few days' work it was projected as a Salman Khan film, and that disappointed audiences."
