I kept Salman's heroism and action in mind as reference - Kashyap
While talking about sallu ki shaadi, and and preparation for the film, Kashyap in an interview said, "Firstly I'm a big fan of Salman Khan. I have been a fan of his since 'Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya' with Kajol. It is amazing to see him on screen I tried to follow his mannerism and aura as an actor but I have never copied him or anything in the movie. In the film I am playing a different character. But while playing this character i kept Salman's heroism and action in mind as reference."
When asked if he always wanted to become an actor and how he ended up doing a film he said, "When I was a kid my father used to work as a fashion photographer in the industry. Since childhood I used to travel with him on sets, for shoots, and also assist him in the work.
Academically I was more interested in non curricular activities then science and maths. I was more inclined towards creativity. After finishing12th, I completed my graduation in film making and VFX from MAX. During that time I directed 2 short films and acted in those. After that I started preparing myself as an actor. I did acting course with Roshan taneja. I've also learn martial arts and dancing."
When asked about how much he had to struggle and if he thinks not being a star kid created more challenges, he said, "I feel that the competition in the industry is so tough that you have to have knowledge about things like action dancing martial arts and learning all these things have helped me a lot.
There is a lot of struggle in the industry there's hardcore competition going on. I do think nepotism does help but if you have it in you as an actor then the industry definitely accept you and can give you a chance."
