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.

Now, Chand Nawab hopes Salman will pay him for Bajrangi Bhaijaan


Pakistani television journalist Chand Nawab is hoping director Kabir Khan and Bollywood star Salman Khan will compensate him for inspiring the character played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the hit film Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

People have said that I should be compensated for inspiring the character of the reporter in the film. I am also hoping I will be compensated, Nawab told Hindustan Times on phone from Karachi on Friday.

Lekin yeh unki marzi hai (But it is up to Salman Khan and Kabir Khan). I am not demanding any compensation, nor will I take any legal action to ensure that they pay me, he said.

If they decide to give the compensation, it is fine. If they dont give it, it wont be a problem.

Nawab, 52, had earlier expressed his happiness at inspiring a character in the film, which features Salman Khan as an Indian who sneaks into Pakistan to reunite a speech-impaired girl with her family. Bajrangi Bhaijaan is faring well at the box office. So far, it has garnered Rs 184.62 crore worldwide.

The journalist with Karachi-based Indus News channel became an unlikely hit on YouTube six years ago after his colleagues posted a video of his flubs as a prank. It was this same video that inspired the character of Chand Nawab, the Pakistani reporter who helps Salman Khan in Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

Nawab said he was also looking forward to meeting Salman Khan as the star and director Kabir Khan have reportedly expressed a desire to meet him. No date or place have been fixed for the meeting as yet, he said.

Wherever Salman Khan calls me, I will go. If he comes to Pakistan to meet me, he will be my guest. If I have to go to India to meet him, I will be his guest, he said.

I am grateful to Kabir Khan, Salman Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui for the fame that this film has given me, he added.

Thanks to the film, Nawab has received offers to appear in Pakistani television commercials. He is now hoping there will also be offers for advertisements from across the border. If anyone from India approaches me for television commercials, I will definitely do them, he said.

The prank video that brought Nawab to the limelight had at one time affected his standing as a serious journalist. It features a series of flubs he made while recording a P2C or piece-to-camera, the clip that anchors a television report, for a piece about people leaving Karachi to spend Eid holidays with their families in the interiors of Sindh.

Nawab wanted the P2C to feature a train pulling out the railway station behind him, but the flubs made him repeat the same sentence almost 20 times. At other times, he was interrupted by people walking up and down the stairway on which he was standing.

During a recent conversation with Kabir Khan, Nawab had explained why he kept making mistakes during the P2C his wife, who died last year, had asked him to head home quickly and he was in a rush to record the piece. Nawab is also no longer upset about the viral video.
