Chand is thankful to Salman for considering him worthy enough for a role to be based on him.
The reporter says he is a “poor journalist” and doesn’t want to deal with the legalities but does expect Salman to compensate him for using him as an inspiration.
Speaking to The Express Tribune, Chand said, “It’s just a request, I’m not going to sue them or go to court over it. If they decide to give it, then well and good, otherwise it’s not a problem.”
The Pakistani reporter will be going to meet Salman Khan soon and doesn’t know if his request will be met.
“I will be meeting Salman Khan, I cannot disclose when, it’s under discretion, but yes, I will be meeting him and if he decides to compensate me then that will be great.
“This is about Pakistan’s respect, my intention is not to mint money, it’s simply a request,” explained Chand.
