Salman Khan found his villain for Dabangg 3 in Kannada superstar Kiccha Sudeep earlier this year. As soon as this news broke out, fans were elated to see the two superstars of the industry to collaborate. Now, in a tell-all interview, Sudeep opens on working with Salman Khan, the bond he shares with him, and mostly about a scene where he just couldn't kick Salman. 

About training with Salman Khan, Sudeep said, "I have worked out with Salman Khan. He trains like an animal. He trains really hard." About his experience of working in the Hindi Film Industry, Sudeep opened up, "Somewhere I am lucky, the first time I came to do a Hindi film, I had a South director, RGV. When he started talking in Hindi, I felt very confident. His Hindi is really bad but one of the most brilliant technicians, he made me so comfortable. I owe it to him. Coming again, this time I have Prabhu Deva. So I became very comfortable yet again."

Narrating his first day on sets, Sudeep added, "When I went to the sets, I requested Prabhu sir the first day to not give me so many lines (in Hindi). I was used to seeing a Salman Khan film from a distance, now suddenly, working with him, I did not know what these people were expecting off me. Prabhu Deva was very sweet to cancel the shoot and Arbaaz asked me to take my time. Salman Sir joined after three days, after that, the problem was not with him, it was with me. I was thinking too much. I want to tell you he is a very different person than what is perceived of him. He is a man with a golden heart. Once he accepts you as a brother, he is very loyal."

He also went on to explain why he just couldn't hit him during a sequence. "I found it very difficult to kick him in his heart during a scene, I found it hard. Salman told me 'buddy, kick me!' The respect I had for me, I couldn't kick him. Then we did it differently because I just couldn't. I failed. I have now realised why people in the South found it difficult to kick me."
