Salman Khan is riding high on the success of his film Tiger 3. Recently, the actor interacted with the media. During a group interaction, Khan was asked about the current superstar of Bollywood. To this, the Tiger 3 star had an interesting answer. While responding to the question, Khan also admitted that he doesn't like to be called a 'megastar' or 'superstar'.

Salman Khan on the term 'superstar'

During the success press meet of Tiger 3, Salman Khan said, "See, whoever is a superstar in his mind, is a superstar. I don't think of that at all. So, I don't care. I mean people like to be called a superstar and a megastar. But it is something that I don't like. It doesn't show in the way I am."

The actor further mentioned, "Perhaps, it might show a bit in my walk. That walk might be considered to be an arrogant walk but that's the way I walk. I cannot change that walk. I am comfortable in that walk and comfortable in my skin. Sometimes it comes out as 'yeh dekho, inki chal dekho, apne aap ko kya samajte hai'. But that's the way I walk, bachpan se chalte aaya hu. Ab main kisi aur ki chal chalunga toh it wouldn't suit me. This is who I am and this is what I do.

Salman Khan doesn't believe in superstardom

The Dabangg actor also added, "But yes, I don't believe in this superstardom. Aise kuch kiya hi nahi ki vo superstardom ka credit akele leke jaaye. From our DOPs, and scriptwriters to directors, they help a normal average Bandra boy to look like this on screen. So, I don't like taking that credit."

About Tiger 3

Tiger 3 marked Salman's on-screen reunion with Katrina Kaif. They reprised their roles of Tiger and Zoya in the Maneesh Sharma directorial. On the other hand, Emraan Hashmi played a menacing villain.
