Salman Khan: “Keeping up with the juniors & their fans is ten times harder”

Salman Khan will be next seen in ‘Race 3.’ The action-thriller is directed by Remo D’souza and also stars Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem.
 
The actor was last seen in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ (2017), which became one of the blockbusters of the year, reports Pinkvilla.
 
In an interview, Khan opened up about stardom and competition with the young actors. “When I started out in the late 1980s, I looked up to my seniors in the industry and wondered if we would ever be able to match the stardom of Dilip Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan. It seemed impossible at the time. Today, I think keeping up with the juniors and their fan-following is ten times harder. None of us older stars are letting go of anything easily, and we’re going to give the younger ones a hard time, but it’s not easy.”
 
He adds, “I’m working harder because the newcomers are so good at what they do. Actors my age can’t be complacent about our physique, films and acting.”
 
When asked does he see himself in any of the young actors, the superstar answered, “Varun Dhawan.”
 
“He has grown up in front of me and has some of me, Sanjay Dutt and Govinda in him and he has imbibed only our good qualities,” said Salman Khan.
 
‘Race 3’ releases during Eid this month.
