Happy to inspire

The actor said that he has no issues with Salman copying the scene and added that he is indeed happy that his movies inspire people from the industry. 

“The credit goes to Aditya Chopra and he has all the reasons to be flattered. But it’s nice as I want to make people smile with my movies and if my films in turn inspire them, I am happy about it,” Shah Rukh said. “I feel movies like Maine Pyar Kiya and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge changed the entire scene of romantic movies in the 90s,” he said.

Apparently, Salman has shot a scene similar to the one in ‘DDLJ’, in which Raj (SRK) pulls Simran (Kajol) aboard a moving train, with London belle Hazel Keech.

The scene was reportedly shot recently at the Mumbai Central Station. Hazel, an actress from London who is of Indian-British parentage, plays a pivotal role in the film. ‘Bodyguard’ is a romantic-action film directed by Siddique.

A remake of the director’s own 2010 Malayalam film, ‘Bodyguard’ is being produced by Atul Agnihotri and stars Salman and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles.  The film is slated to release on August 31 this year.
