Salman Khan’s co-star in Tere Naam, Ravi Kishan, who played the role of a priest in the film, recalled staying away from the Dabangg actor on set.

In a recent interview with Lallantop Cinema, Ravi was exclusively asked about Salman's behaviour on the film set, since the Big Boss host was “going through a tough time in his personal life" at the time.

Ravi quickly chimed in, noting that artists are usually “moody by nature.” 

He further went on to talk about his way of dealing with artists that go through struggling phases.

Kishan shared that he “gives space” to actors that experience mood swings, adding: “On the set of Tere Naam, I would give him space. That character (Radhe) was intense. That’s how Satish Kaushik ji (director) wanted it. Salman was probably lost in the character too. I would stay away from him on the set.”

The film that garnered appreciation from Salman’s fans worldwide, was released in 2003 shortly after the Kick actor was accused in the hit-and-run case, resulting in a casualty.

At the time, Salman was also under scrutiny over his intense relationship with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, which ended as a result of alleged abuse.

According to a fan theory, Salman's Radhe offered an insight into his actual relationship with the 1994 Miss World winner.
