There’s a newfound enthusiasm in Salman Khan’s voice and it has nothing to do with his films. Rather he is excited about his paintings and would like to talk endlessly about it—how he spent the time with his brushes and canvas. In his words, it was this passion for painting that kept him busy during the Covid lockdown period.

“I had enough time on my hands so I did a lot of paintings. I did around 36 of them during that phase,” says Khan, who is just back from Russia where he was shooting for his forthcoming film Tiger 3. Painting is a passion that the actor had secretly nurtured for over a decade. However, it came to the fore a few years back as he started talking more about his artworks publicly. “Now, I plan to hold an exhibition in Singapore in a few months and later in Abu Dhabi,” he says. Khan has inherited this talent from his mother who started painting 25 years ago but left it in between. “But she picked up the brush again 14 years ago, left it and restarted recently,” says the 55-year-old star.
