This year, one of the most anticipated films is, inarguably, Salman Khan’s Bharat, and while the shooting of the film has wrapped up, fans can’t wait for the film to hit the screens to watch their bhai and his magic. Post Bharat, Salman Khan has dived straight onto the sets of Dabangg 3 as he donned the role of Chulbul Pandey. But in an interview with DNA, Salman Khan says that unlike Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, he is surviving on mediocre talent.

“SRK is a legend, as is Aamir. A bad movie here or there may happen, but they will always come back. Actually, tension toh mera hai. Aamir and SRK know their craft. I’ve heard people saying they’re not so sure about me. My thing is that I’m surviving on mediocre talent and luck. Actually, I don’t know what I’m surviving on, but I’m surviving. Mere ups and downs toh hote rahenge. By the grace of God, hamari fan following itni tagdi hai,” Salman informed DNA. If after a series of hit films- Dabangg, Wanted, Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, and others, if Salman Khan has a flop, like Tubelight or Race, such is the craze for Salman Khan that fans will never write him off and instead wait patiently for another blockbuster from him.

But what fans love about Salman Khan is the fact that he is not hesitant to accept that he is surviving on mediocre talent and it is the love of the audiences and his fan following that has made him a superstar. Salman said, “The audience wants to spend money to see my films on screen, they watch them on satellite television also and they want to see me in my shows. I don’t know yeh kab tak chalega, but jab tak chal raha hai, my idea is to give my best, no matter what problems I go through, physically or mentally.” Talking about his upcoming projects, Salman said that this year, he will be seen in Bharat on Eid and Dabangg 3 in December. Next Eid, Inshallah, “we’ll have Inshallah,” Salman informs. Yesterday, Salman Khan took to social media to announce that he has wrapped up the first schedule of Dabangg 3 in Maheshwar.

Why this old short man still acting young? he should act his age. he is looking like a grandpa now.

people in India will continue to watch Salman because he is one of them while SRK following Gauri's footsteps joined nepotistic snobbish Bollywood elite which turned Indians away

Bharat, Dabang 3, Inshallah and tiger sequel.....What a amazing line up. He is gona roar at box office.

Srk will never bounce back big. Every rise has a fall. Soon Salman too will start seeing his downfall but his body of work is better than srk in last 5 years. He had done films like bajrangi bhaijaan, tiger zinda Hai and sultan. Bharat seems to be his best work till dates.

Salman khan films always gives me happiness excepting Tubelight, Race 3 and other 2/3 pictures .

Aah yes we do know that’s right Mr. Khan, now if only you were truthful about your driving and hunting!

Good he’s not in illusion ... make it below avg acting

Well, at least he is honest about his talent. Like SRK he has typecast himself and his shelf life will be questioned in a couple of years.

He is the best.

Love you Salman

Spoken like a true actor will always be my no 1 actor

Right from prem to chulbul u have entertained us for more than 25 yrs and hope it continues. For me U will be always the bigest entertaining actors of India for so many reasons.

Truer words have never been spoken.

If only he was this honest about his drunk driving skills :)
