It is impossible to fake on camera, says Salman
Panaji: Superstar Salman Khan believes it does not matter how good one is as an actor, one cannot afford to fool the audience by being a "fraud" on-camera.
The 52-year-old star, who has a huge fan-base in India, says it is necessary for an actor to be real and give the audience an insight into their original personality.
"It is impossible to fake on camera. When you are playing a character, you can't fake. Whatever we do on-screen – the dialogues, emotions and expressions – they come from our personality. It is somewhere a part of us," he said.
"Camera has the power to catch if you are a fraud. You can fool people for some time, but you can't fool all the people for all the time. It will come out one day. One may try hard to hide their real self, but it is impossible. You have to be yourself, otherwise people won't be able to relate with you and then there is no success," Salman further added.
The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor said the layer a performer wears while essaying a role becomes even thinner when they come on television as it is a medium which is closest to the audience.
"Whenever I am there on TV, it is the real Salman. There is no pretence. There is no 'dialogue baazi'. Whatever experiences I have had in my life, I share with people. What has troubled me and my parents, I share that as well because there is a direct connection between me and them," he said.
