The actor is keen on writing a book on bodybuilding

Salman Khan seems to be stung by the writing bug. After turning a scriptwriter with Veer, Salman now wants to write a book on fitness and bodybuilding.

A source close to the actor spills, “Salman has been toying with the idea of writing something on fitness for a long time. He often gets quizzed by fans and people he meets about his exercise and fitness routine. And so he decided to write the book.”

My journey

Salman has spoken about the book to a couple of his close friends. “He’s still thinking about the exact nature and content of the book. He wants to write a first person prologue on what got him into body building. In fact, he plans to trace his journey from his skinny days in Maine Pyar Kiya to his toned up body.”

Salman is reading books written by celebrities on the subject. Papa Salim Khan is unaware of beta’s plans, “Salman hasn’t spoken to me about it as yet.” About his absence by his son’s side at the unveiling of his wax statue at Madame Tussauds he says, “I didn’t go because it’s very cold there and travelling long distance becomes difficult for me. I saw it on TV.”

It’s temporary

Needless to say, he’s thrilled with the honour. “We do feel happy for Salman and grateful to God, but we do not get excited by these small things; or feel depressed by failures. Yeh bhi chala jayega. The good thing about bad things is that they also come to an end. As Sam Goldwyn has said, 'Success has destroyed more people than failures. We take everything in our stride,'" said Salim.
