Veteran film writer, Salim Khan has turned down the Padma Shri Award and said that he deserves more than that title.

Khan, who is the father of Salman Khan and known for hit movies like ‘Andaz’, ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ and ‘Deewar’, expressed his reasoning for denying the award. He said, ���I deserve more than a Padma Shri for my contributions to Hindi cinema, given that my juniors have already got it years before. Even my earstwhile partner, Javed Akhtar, has received both a Padma Shri and a Padma Bhushan.”

Furthermore, Khan is annoyed that he and his partner, Javed Akhtar, shared six Filmfare Awards but was snubbed when Akhtar took away the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan gongs.
