Salman Khan says that he hasn’t achieved even 10% of the stardom that stars like Rajesh Khanna and Kumar Gaurav have. Salman believes that he, or the stars of his generation still have a long way to go.
He told PTI, “Actor wise I don’t think anyone is bigger than Dilip Kumar, after that Mr Amitabh Bachchan had a very good run and he’s working even today and is everywhere. Star wise if you think we guys have the popularity then (it is not true)… I think there is no one bigger than Rajesh Khanna and other was Kumar Gaurav. I have seen the stardom of both and it was unbelievable. So, when there is comparison about stardom I feel we don’t even have 10% of it.”
Salman, whose Tubelight comes out on Eid, says that he works hard but doesn’t take his superstar label seriously. “It’s just a job. If you take everything seriously it is going to go your head. I live my life moment to moment and do my best in every moment,” he said.
Salman Khan is currently filming Tiger Zinda Hai, a sequel to his popular Ek Tha Tiger, with Katrina Kaif.
