He is one of the biggest stars in India today but reaching here was no easy job for Salman Khan. From highs and lows to legal battles, Salman khan has seen a lot in order to achieve this stardom.
The actor who is loved by millions has been through breaking points in his life but believes that his work doesn’t give him the liberty to share the vulnerable side with the world.

Talking about it at the Global TiE Summit, the actor said, “My profession is such that I have to look good, dress up, do stylised action sequences and romance. Articles come on my affairs, me working with beautiful heroines and then suddenly a court date comes up… People see me on Bigg Boss in which I am laughing and joking. So, people think I don’t give a damn about things. That is the most difficult part about our journey as actors. No matter what you are going through at your home or in your personal life, you can’t have subtitles there. You have to be that character, no matter what you are going through,” Salman said at the Global TiE Summit.
The actor also causally termed being depression or sorrow as luxury. “I see a lot of people getting depressed and emotional, but I can’t afford that luxury of being depressed or sad or emotional because no matter what I am going through, it works against me,” he said.
Talking about his initial days in the film industry, Salman talked about Aamir Khan and revealed how he somewhere shaped and influenced his career, “The journey I began with ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, not knowing if I would make it, and that time it was difficult because there was another actor, who had started his career and he had given a big hit. That kid’s name was Aamir Khan. He was from the same locality. I thought that he made it and if I didn’t make it, the whole of Bandra will start laughing at me. So, my concern was only Bandra- Pali Hill and the friends’ circle, which just had four-five people,” he said.
Coming e-soon !
Well, we bet even Aamir had no idea about how he unknowingly shaped Salman’s work and made him deliver the blockbuster ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’ that we still love.
Further talking about how all this began he said, “When I was 15-16 (years old), I started partying and stuff like that because that’s the age when everyone parties. When I was in college, I used to assist in films and then I started working as a model too.”
