Salman Khan fears stampede at ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ promotional tour

The actor refused to promote his film Ek Tha Tiger in small town India for the safety of women and children

Superstar Salman Khan is playing safe – he has decided against travelling to smaller cities to promote his forthcoming film Ek Tha Tiger and he has a valid reason to do so. “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 actor said.

“If someone gets injured, that’s okay, 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 okay 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 Films have put in a lot of creativity and money in Tiger. So when all these things come together on screen, I am going to be hugely benefited by the success of the Friday,” added Salman.

Directed by Kabir Khan, Ek Tha Tiger stars Salman in the role of a spy with Katrina Kaif acting opposite him. It hits theatres on August 15.
