'Don't think Salman Khan is a superstar'
Salman Khan told the portal, "I have never felt that way. I have never felt like a superstar ever. My habits are not that of a superstar. The way I travel, the way I dress, there is nothing I do that speaks superstar. My mind is not tuned that way. Nothing about me is any superstarry. Nothing at all. I don't think Salman Khan is a superstar. It is all bulls***. I have never felt it. I am just happy to wake up in the morning, have my coffee and start my day. I just want to give my best."
Salman is often spotted in casual outfits at Bollywood parties as well as red carpet events. Earlier this month, he attended various Diwali bashes and stood out in his basic denim looks.

Salman Khan also talked about how he got the first film under the now popular Tiger franchise, Ek Tha Tiger. He said, "I heard the narration at my farm and it was about 2.30 in the afternoon. I heard the synopsis and then the whole script, and I thought it was good. It was my first time working with YRF (Yash Raj Films). Our fathers have been very close."
Salman Khan's father is veteran script writer Salim Khan, while YRF is headed by director-producer Aditya Chopra, son of the late filmmaker Yash Chopra.
