The whole Indian film fraternity is currently in the glamorous city if New York for the annual IIFA awards. While people ar speculating who would walk away with the coveted trophies on the star studded night, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan says he prefers performing at such ceremonies over receiving an honour.
"I have never won an award. I have got some supporting actor award. I like rewards more than awards.Recalling a incident when a magazine editor had called him to attend an award show as he was nominated for ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’, he added, “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."
"Even after such bad performances, they (organisers) are paying me for it. I am more than happy doing it. It's like I am getting money for standing there," joked Salman. On the work front, Salman is currently shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ alongside Katrina Kaif which is scheduled to release in December this year.
