Bollywood's Salman Khan told, BBC Asian Network that he doesn't feel any pressure to compete with Bollywood A listers like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan or Saif Ali Khan. Speaking on Love Bollywood to Raj & Pablo Salman said, 'I don't compete with anybody. I don't compete with Shah Rukh I don't compete with Aamir, Saif or anybody. I don't compete with myself. So, they don't have a problem with me and they know that my house is an open house...'
'I like the people that I work with, if I don't like them, I won't work with them?'

Presenters Raj & Pablo asked Salman why he is so cagey about the work he does for Charities, to which Salman replied, 'I think it's a big fraud thing to publicize the stuff that you do 'coz I've seen people going and doing stuff and the whole press is there'.

'That's what I used to think actually, earlier. But today I feel that since I've opened this charitable trust, (The Salman Khan Foundation). I have realized that you have to go out and you have to publicize that and I'm still not coming to terms with that because I feel like a fraud. I've seen a lot people who are doing a lot of good things with the all the wrong intentions and I don't think that works but if I can turn that around...'

'...the way I'm trying to do that is that I'm putting a lot of my own money into the foundation which people do not do'.

'I've started painting and from my art the money goes into my organization and if I cannot support those many, if I cannot help those many lives with my kind of work that I do with whatever I do that amount 10-20 percent that goes into my charitable organization I still can't support that many people I still can't treat that many people I will start begging, I will start extorting!'
