That’s why Salman rejected ‘Baazigar’
In response, Salman had said, ‘Not at all. I rejected the film and he (Shah Rukh Khan) signed it. That’s all right. When Abbas-Mustan came to me with the script of the film, I asked my dad (Salim Khan) for his inputs. He felt that since the story is about a negative character, a mother’s angle should also be added to it. Those people did not listen. When I rejected the film, they (Abbas-Mustan) signed Shah Rukh and also put a mother’s angle in the story.
‘Vannat’ would not have stood today if I had done ‘Baazigar’
Salman had further said, ‘But I have no regrets at all. Imagine, if I had done ‘Baazigar’, ‘Mannat’ (Shah Rukh Khan’s bungalow) would not have stood on the bandstand today. I am very happy for Shahrukh and his success.

Salman did not like the climax of ‘Chak De India’
Salman also talked about the film ‘Chak De India’ and told why he had rejected Aditya Chopra’s film. Salman had said, ‘I have no regrets that I didn’t do the film (Chak De India). But I agree that my judgment regarding the film was wrong. Adi (Aditya Chopra) told me during the narration that he was going to make a very good film. But I had a problem with the climax of the film. I used to believe that if you lose a match against Pakistan, you also have to win against Pakistan. I also had a problem with the title of the film. Hopefully! He would not have added ‘India’ to the title of the film. I felt that our fans in Pakistan and Bangladesh must have felt bad.
