After being in the film fraternity for over three decades and achieving success that’s hard to surpass, Bollywood actor Salman Khan has said he is popular because he can do a bit of everything.
Asked whether he ponders over the reason for his popularity, the 50-years-old actor told Open Magazine in an interview, “Kaun sochega, boss? Chal raha hai, toh chal raha hai. (Who’ll think about it? it’s working, so it’s working). Maybe I am popular because I can do a bit of everything. A bit of dancing, a bit of acting, a bit of action,” The Dawn reported.
He went on explaining how he makes it a point to inculcate within himself the positive characteristics of every character that he plays. “I want my film and character to be like that. Like Bruce Lee. It has to be a hero, you know. A good man who people can look up to,” he said.

“If I do a film, I should know I’m taking this character back home. I want to do those movies that will change my own personality. ‘Wow, what a man’, ‘wow, what a personality.’ I want this to happen to me. Maybe two per cent when I start. but karte, karte (gradually) till the end of the film, I want 25 per cent of the character’s qualities in my life,” he shared.
