We spotted Bollywood star Salman Khan recently at an awards function. The actor preferred to keeps his answers short, but was in a good mood. Excerpts from the tete a tete.
What’s your take on award functions?

I like it when others get the awards. Awards do not make a difference to me. I like to attend because it is like a get together for me and I get to meet a lot of others from the film industry.
You do not accept awards too.

Yes. I think they should delete my name from the nominations also. I have been around for so many years. The younger generation should be nominated and awarded. I will attend and perform at these awards.
There are some good films that are being made these days.

Yes. But I thought there should have been a better film made than Bajrangi Bhaijaan last year, but that was not to be
How is your film with director Ali Abbas Zafar and actress Anushka Sharma - Sultan shaping up?

It is shaping up well, but then it is a difficult film to do.
Will we see you work with director Sooraj Barjatya again after Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo?

Well, I am ready whenever he is keen to work with me and make movies with me.
Have you seen your Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo co-star Sonam Kapoor’s recent release Neerja?

No, I have been unable to see the film, but when she was shooting with me for Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, she did show me some snatches. She is a very hard working actress and I am sure the audience loves her.
Aamir Khan was praising your film Sultan.

Well, I equally excited about his film Dangal.
