Salman Khan despite being the superstar of Bollywood has never been considered as a favourite at award shows in his more than 25 years of filmy career. Even after giving several hit films, Dabangg Khan doesn’t carry any complaints of not getting awarded.
Talking on the same the actor stated: “I prefer performing at such ceremonies over receiving an honour.”
While interacting with the media, the actor stated: “I have never won an award. I have got some supporting actor award. I like rewards more than awards.”
The actor recalled a time when he was invited by one of the leading magazines to one of the award shows and was nominated for his romantic-comedy film ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kia’. Remembering that time, the actor went on to say that “I was nominated alongside Jackie Shroff and others. The moment my name was announced, I stood up to receive the award but it went to Jackie. I don’t go and receive awards, I just go and perform.”
The actor laughed and said to the media that although he is not a good dancer yet the organisers are always ready to pay him a fat cheque.
He further added that “I am more than happy doing it. It’s like I am getting money for standing there.”
