Salman Khan dismisses the ‘superstar’ label, emphasizing that there is nothing about him that qualifies as such.
Salman Khan’s Tiger 3, which was released on November 12, has been doing well at the box office. In an interview with IndiaToday.in, the actor talked about his ‘superstar tag’, how he got the first Tiger film, and more. When asked what his feelings were about being called a ‘superstar’, Salman said ‘nothing about him is superstarry’. He added he has ‘never felt like a superstar, ever’.
Habits are not of a superstar
Salman Khan told the portal, “I have never felt that way. I have never felt like a superstar ever. My habits are not that of a superstar. The way I travel, the way I dress, there is nothing I do that speaks superstar. My mind is not tuned that way. Nothing about me is any superstarry. Nothing at all. I don’t think Salman Khan is a superstar. It is all bulls***. I have never felt it. I am just happy to wake up in the morning, have my coffee and start my day. I just want to give my best.”
Salman is often spotted in casual outfits at Bollywood parties as well as red carpet events. Earlier this month, he attended various Diwali bashes and stood out in his basic denim looks.
Salman Khan opens up about getting the first Tiger film
Salman Khan also talked about how he got the first film under the now-popular Tiger franchise, Ek Tha Tiger. He said, “I heard the narration at my farm and it was about 2.30 in the afternoon. I heard the synopsis and then the whole script, and I thought it was good. It was my first time working with YRF (Yash Raj Films). Our fathers have been very close.”
Salman Khan’s father is veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan, while YRF is headed by director-producer Aditya Chopra, son of the late filmmaker Yash Chopra.
