Bollywood star Salman Khan on Wednesday was in attendance at the press conference of the 68th Filmfare Awards 2023 where he talked about he has never won major awards. He recalled how he was supposed to win an award for Maine Pyar Kiya but it eventually went to Jackie Shroff. That year, Shroff won the Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his film Parinda.
Salman Khan says he refused to perform at Filmfare when he was promised Best Actor award for Maine Pyar Kiya but Jackie Shroff won it instead: ‘My dad said, ‘Yeh kya hai?’’
At the press conference, Salman Khan recalled how he always lost at award shows. He said, “I always lost. I was never interested in awards. Till today, I’m not. I’m interested in rewards. And the rewards are the love and the respect that I get from my fans, Hindi film audiences and the people of this country.”
Recalling one such incident, he added, “I won’t take the name of the editor, but it was just after Maine Pyar Kiya so you can figure out who it was. So I was told I should come for Filmfare awards and that the award was going to be given to me. So I went there with my father and the whole family. Then nominations were announced… Best actor goes to… Salman Khan… I stood up and another name was taken and then another name was taken. And the award went to Jackie Shroff. My dad said, ‘Yeh kya hai?’ I was to perform that night for the first time. I went backstage and said, ‘This is something I cannot do because this is not done. I don’t care at all.’ Then the editor was like, ‘But you’ll have to perform.’ I said, ‘No, I cannot.’ And he then told me, ‘I’ll pay you for this performance.’ I took a substantial amount at that time and it was five times more than what they offered to me (laughs)."
