Salman Khan is the biggest superstar in Bollywood currently. Success or failure has never really affected his stardom. The moment he appears on the silver screen, he simply charms his audiences with his charisma. We bring you excerpts from industry’s favourite Bhai being candid about his presence in Bollywood for all these years and more.

You Khans have lasted for more than 30 years. What would you attribute that to?

Today there is so much of awareness – physical awareness, mental awareness. There are people to guide you in various fields. You keep on reinventing yourself. You keep on increasing your level from your previous film. You have personal trainers and dieticians. In those days, you ate parathas and you did baithaks. So no matter what they did they could not get to this mark. This is the advantage that we have over our seniors. They didn’t have the right people around them.

Akki (Akshay Kumar) and we have learnt it the hard way. When I was new, Jackie (Shroff) and Sanju (Sanjay Dutt) were much bigger stars than we could ever imagine. So also Sunny (Deol). Each time I felt I was dipping and that my films were not working… gadbad chal rahi hai… (Laughs) I piggybacked on Sunny, Sanju. That is how Jeet and Saajan happened.

For you, at this level, is there a fear of a film not doing well?

Fear as in there is a void. There is so much of time, interest and effort put into a film and in one day it’s discarded. When a film does not do well, a lot of people lose money. And the next film carries the burden of the previous one. Three four more such films and you’re out. It is bad for the industry. It demoralises everyone. Some people get happy when somebody’s film does not do well. They are like bahut udd raha tha, chalo accha hai, upar waale ki laathi… But I hate it when someone’s movie doesn’t do well. Because not only him… the whole staff, the unit, his family, the exhibitors, the theatre owners, his fans his entire life gets affected. You can’t wish bad for someone’s life.
