1. Every year Salman Khan’s  birthday is  brought  in at his family farm in  Panvel .Salman  hates cutting cakes on his  birthday. Since the family insists on  the  cake-cutting ceremony he makes one  of his  nephews do the  needful. There is   a clamour among Salman’s nephews as to who will  cut the cake for ‘Chachu’.

2.     Salman’s brother Sohail’s sons Nirvaan and Arhaan are very close to Salman. In fact they’re as attached to their ‘Chachu’ Salman as they are to their own father. Nirvaan already has plans of becoming an actor. He  seeks his Chachu’s advice and guidance regularly.

3.     Salman Khan hates any kind  of physical contact with  anyone except his two Moms Salma and Helen. Even  friends get a very tentative hug. Brothers Arbaaz, Sohail and Salman never cuddle up or snuggle together. Salman  is plainly and simply shy of physical intimacy.

4.     Makes friends for life but but also makes enemies for  a lifetime….Or so  he says. Doesn’t suffer backstabbers easily. Considers Vivek Oberoi  a serious backstabber. However most of the  other ‘lifelong enemies’ gradually turn into friends and are known to wriggle their way back into Salman’s favour. Himesh Reshammiya and Subhash Ghai are  prime examples.

5.     Best friends are Sajid Nadiadwala, (London-based singer) Kamaal Khan and currently, director Ali Abbas Zafar the  director of Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai, and Bharat  with whom Salman is  already planning his  fourth  film that will have nothing to do with either wrestling or wildlife, Tiger Zinda Hai lekin abhi Salman ussey maar chukka hai, so no third Tiger film for three years.

6.     Favourite current heroines: Katrina  Kaif and  Jacqueline Fernandez. 

7.     Is currently off-alcohol. Doesn’t touch a drop. Playing Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg 3 which his brother Arbaaz produces. Prabhudhevaa directs. No more professional compromises for the family.

8.     In spite of being the most successful star of Indian cinema Salman lives in a 3-bedroom apartment in Bandra Mumbai with his parents. He won’t moved out because he can’t live without his  parents.

9.     Also, he won’t kiss his heroines and won’t do villainous roles.

10.  Here is what Salman WILL be seen doing soon: acrobatics in the upcoming film 'Bharat' and because he had 'promised' a film with Katrina Kaif. And as we know Bhai ek baar commitment kar leta hai toh woh kissika nahin sunta. Amen.
