"I am very scared of Salman for some reason, I don't know why, though he has been very wonderful to me, he is close to my family from a very long time, but I get nervous in front of him."
Johar worked with Salman in his 1998 directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The movie also featured Shah Rukh Khan.
Johar, who recently launched three newcomers - Siddharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and Ali Bhatt - through Student Of The Year, says the youth brigade aspires to be like Shah Rukh, but their aim shouldn't be that.
"These kids want to be like Shah Rukh, I just told them the way SRK shoots, takes the light, does not fumble even once and controls the camera with his eyes... no one, I repeat no one, can ever do that! There is only one Shah Rukh Khan," he said.
