"I don't think anybody can be Salman Khan. And I don't think anybody should try and be like him. There is only one Salman Khan and I am sure he is not trying to be like someone else," Shahid told reporters when he was asked if he wants to be an entertainer like Salman.
"I am a huge fan of him and enjoy his work. I am not trying to be someone else and I am trying to create an identity for myself," the 31-year-old said. Shahid's next release is director Kunal Kohli's "Teri Meri Kahaani" and he has been paired with his former rumoured girlfriend Priyanka Chopra in it.
