Sohail during the event talked about a very personal family information that his father Salim Khan had always wanted one of his sons to be a cricketer. The actor turned producer said, “Abba wanted one of his sons to become a professional cricketer. He used to visit Khar gymkhana with us.

Salman added that he used to play cricket fairly well but the day his father came to see him, he intentionally gave a bad performance. Sohail at the event was asked if he wanted to make a biopic of a cricketer to which he said, “Every era has got a living legend, Don Bradman, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar and now Virat Kohli. They all have beautiful stories. I don’t know if I can play any of them but yes I like to direct or produce any of them.”
