June 25 : In a conversation with Kabir Bedi about his autobiography, 'Stories I Must Tell: The Emotional Life of an Actor,’ Salman Khan admitted that he had made many “mistakes in life” and how he apologised to people after making those mistakes. Salman was speaking to the veteran actor during an Instagram Live.
"I have shared a lot of the glories that I have seen but I have also told of the mistakes that I have made and I hope everyone can learn from that," Kabir Bedi said about his book.
Responding to him, Salman Khan said, "That is the most difficult thing... to own the mistakes that one has done. Everyone denies that. I am one of those persons sitting right in front of you. I always said, 'yeh maine nahi kiya (I haven't done this)'. But if you have said that 'yes, I've done this mistake and I've tried to rectify it this way', that takes a lot of courage."
Later Salman added, “There are times when I have made mistakes. I have come and said sorry. Mistakes do happen but then repeating the same mistakes again is not okay.”
In his autobiography, Kabir wrote about his marriages and relationships; about how he broke his marriage to live with Parveen Babi. He also revealed about the financial crisis he faced in Hollywood; and how he went through traumatic experiences after his son committed suicide.
Talking about writing a book with honesty, the Bharat actor said, “When you write a book, the most courageous thing is to go look deep inside your soul. When you are writing, whether I should write this or not... And then you say, to hell with it, I am just going to be honest with myself and honest to everyone, and I am going to write the honest truth about what all has happened to me."
Sharing the video clip on his Instagram handle, Kabir Bedi wrote: "Salman Khan and I talk about what it took to tell the story of my life honestly, and how I wrote my book in the pandemic. #StoriesIMustTell seems to have touched many of you and that's a great gift for a debut author. I thank you ALL for your love and appreciation. Thank you @beingsalmankhan."
