Now I know how heroines feel in swimsuits: Salman after shooting for Sultan in langot

The actor revealed that he had never felt shy while removing shirt or wearing shorts on screen, but shooting in langot left him teary eyed.

Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan has never shied away from removing his shirt on screen but the most difficult thing for him was to wear a 'langot' (loincloth) and
shoot for his upcoming film 'Sultan'.

In 'Sultan', he plays a Haryanvi wrestler named Sultan and actress Anushka Sharma also essays the role of another wrestler in the film. "The most difficult doing this film has been the langot (loincloth). I realised how heroines feel when they shoot in swimsuit shorts. Ali Abbas Zafar (director) asked me to wear 'langot' and not shorts as it doesn't look real," he said.

Salman was amazed to see crowd of close to 5,000 people when he was to shoot the scene in a 'langot'. Surprisingly the 'Dabangg' Khan got a bit emotional.

"I told Ali there is no chance I will go there (to shoot) as ladies were also siting there. I was like, this is not possible. Ali told me then we will come on next Eid (referring to postponing the film) I told him no this Eid is good. I wore a lungi and went there. Walking from my van to the location I had tears in my eyes," he said.
