'Salman is hero No. 1 in comedy'

Bollywood producer Pahlaj Nihalani, who was instrumental in shaping actor Govinda's career with his first hit Ilzaam, says Salman Khan is currently ruling the comedy circuit and is the best comic actor.

"Though I have not worked with Salman till now, but I think in the industry today, he is the best actor as far as comic timing is concerned. He can play any kind of role but in comedy he is number one," Nihalani, who has completed 30 years in the industry, said.

The producer claims that his hit comic caper Shola Aur Shabnam, starring Govinda and late Divya Bharti, popularised comedy in Bollywood. The film was directed by David Dhawan.

"My film Shola Aur Shabnam was a trendsetter in comedy films. People did not like to watch comedy before that, but after that viewers don't like to watch anything besides comedy," said Nihalani, who also produced blockbuster comedy Aankhen in 1993.

Nihalani is also known for introducing actors like Govinda, Suniel Shetty, Neelam Kothari, Chunky Pandey, and Divya Bharati, among others. Now he is bringing two newcomers Rishi Rehan and Avantikka in Khushboo, releasing Friday.

"I always believe in introducing new talents as they do not have an image. Besides, I feel the country is brimming with talent and we, as responsible producers, should provide them a chance to prove their mettle."

His next will be a sequel to the 1993 hit Aankhen that will see most of the original cast. The producer said he is also planning to make a film based on the true story of Kandahar plane hijack in 1999.

I used to think wrong about Pahlaj Nihlan, he is a humble man, i mean he's giving that title to Salman but everyone knows that their is only one number one comedian in industry and they is he himself. What a guy, what a selfless personality.
