Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan says he is not worried about the repercussions which may arise in South India as a result of his decision to shoot his latest movie‘Ready’ in Sri Lanka.

“It’s not a big deal. I have not faced any barriers so far. And I don’t think I will have any problems in screening the movie in South India,” Khan told reporters in Colombo today adding that the movie was being shot in Sri Lanka as it saves a lot of money and time.

The movie was scheduled to be shot in Mauritius, Singapore and Thailand but instead they found all the locations for the movie in Sri Lanka. Salman Khan is a producer cum lead actor while Kollywood actress Asin is paired alongside with him.

    iT'S DIRTY POLITICS BY A FEW TAMIL NADU POLITICIANS.
    THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE DO NOT SUPPORT THEIR DECISIONS.

    IF INDIA CAN PLAY CRICKET IN SRI LANKA WHY CAN'T THEY SHOOT A MOVIE HERE.
    DIDN'T 3 SRI LANKANS REPRESENT THE CHENNAI SUPER KINGS DURING THE IPL. WHY DIDN'T YOU PROTEST AGAINST THEM TOO.

    COME ON GENTLEMEN, LEAVE POLITICS ASIDE AND HELP US TO ACHIEVE PERMANENT PEACE IN OUR LAND..

    A good example for other Indian producers who are willing to film in Sri Lanka and save money. 'Hats-off' Salman, you are a real hero - unlike the other cowards!

    READY is a remake of Telugu movie, so nobody is going to watch the HIndi remake in south anyway.

    No body can dictate terms to any body, after all South India is only part of India.

    After all, the Bachchan clan got scared of a South boycott of their latest movie "Raavan" as they expected a huge box office success for that movie. As it has turned out, Raavan has become a big flop even without a boycott in the South.

    trisha Wednesday, 30 June 2010 10:56 AM

    Hope you doing right one ... but you need south india help as well....

    Sicillian Wednesday, 30 June 2010 10:45 AM

    South Indians are incorrect.
    There is no point in boycotting films shooted in Sri Lanka.
    If they want to help, there are many ways to help
    E.g. giving jobs to tamils in South India
    treating tamil refugees properly
    assisting SL governement
    If SL governement makes mistakes highlighting to the world

    Not boycotting films. Comon indians ... grow up

    real sri lankan Wednesday, 30 June 2010 10:05 AM

    well done salman. We appreciate your great move.

    charith Wednesday, 30 June 2010 09:57 AM

    Yes you don't need to worry..This movie will be more popular and better than you think.
