Dharmendra sees his reflection in Salman
From serious roles and comedies to romance and action, Dharmendra stepped into all kind of roles in his heydays and says he see his reflection in Salman Khan, who, just like him, does everything to entertain the audiences.
"All the heroes are like my kids. Hrithik Roshan has his own style, Shah Rukh Khan has his own way. I see a lot of myself in Salman. He does anything - some weird dance moves and all. He is very good. He is emotional and a good dancer," the 77-year-old said here Wednesday on the sets of "Dance India Dance Super Moms" auditions.
He summed up, saying: "Everybody is good, I can't say who is the best."
Dharmendra came with son Bobby Deol to promote their upcoming home production "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2", which also stars his elder son Sunny.
Dancing is not Dharmendra's forte, and his son Sunny is not an expert either. But what makes the senior actor happy is that Sunny is finally taking a keen interest in dance.
"I feel embarrassed when somebody calls me a dancer. Bobby is the dancer, he is the best," he said.
"I used to tell Sunny to learn dance, but he used to say, 'Papa when you didn't learn dance, why should I?' But if you see him now in the upcoming movies, he has become good. He is now learning and I am so happy that he is really taking interest," Dharmendra said.
Directed by Sangeeth Sivan, "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2", a sequel to 2011 hit "Yamla Pagla Deewana", hits theatres June 7.
