June 23 – It’s a known that superstar Salman Khan’s friends and fans fondly call him bhai, but he says that only boys should address him with that. At the launch of Jumme Ki Raat on Friday, a song from his forthcoming film Kick, his fans were going berserk, especially the girls who started shouting Sallu, Sallu and Jaanu, Jaanu.

Responding, Salman said humorously, “I am bhai only for boys, and I have two sisters and two rakhi sisters. And thanks for all your love.” Directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, Kick, which stars Sri Lankan actress Jacqueline Fernandez as Salman’s love interest, will come out on Eid.

When asked what gives you kick in real life, he said, “If somebody tries to bog me down, I try to prove him wrong and if somebody gives me compliment, I try to work harder.”
