MUMBAI: His fans go crazy in theatres when he takes off his shirt and it turns out to be one of the selling points of his movies but little did anyone know that Salman Khan is “uncomfortable with clothes”.
The superstar admits that he and his father Salim Khan prefers to remain in “minimum clothing” at home.
“I’m very uncomfortable with clothes. Something happens to me when I start wearing clothes,” said Salman, who is known for his wit, during a fashion show at IIM Ahmedabad on Friday night.
“Come to my house someday and you will see it for yourselves. Its not me only but my father too. We prefer to remain with minimum clothing, for instance pant with baniyan (vest), shirt or sometimes bare chested.”
Salman, who walked the ramp with his “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” co-star Sonam Kapoor in an outfit designed by Pratap Singh and Bal, asserted that he likes to wears khadi outfit in his personal and professional life.
“I got to know that I wear khadi more often. Yes it’s a mix and adulterated khadi but I wear it. I bought a lot of khadi outfits during my college days from a place in Mumbai. I remember that it was very difficult to to close buttons in khadi but now things have changed.
“Even in ‘ Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ I have worn several Khadi outfits,” he said.
The “Dabangg” star also noted that he is planning to add a khadi line in his fashion line Being Human.
“I called up the person who manufactures clothes for our Being Human line and told him that we should have something of khadi. We should be proud of the fact that it is made in India,” he said.
