Staying successful for 30 years
Asked about staying relevant, and successful for three decades, Salman told the news agency, "Look! I have no clue what is it, but we are fortunate that we have been around for three decades and are still here. Ajay Devgn, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar - all of us came in the 90s.

You have been living it, spending all your time and energy for the film while making it."
