The road outside Salman's house in Bandra is always choc-o-blocked with tonnes of fans gathered, just to catch a glimpse of 'Bhai' waving out at the balcony. Calculating his contribution and stardom, HT Leadership Summit 2017 has invited Salman Khan to have an interaction on topical issues related to showbiz. For instance, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati' entangled in a political row and many other things. The actor is stationed at Delhi for the Summit.
The actor has given various anecdotes about how the industry functions, his life and so on. At the Summit, when the superstar was asked if 'casting couch' existed in Bollywood, he said, "I have never come across or heard of such an incident. But if I ever hear of it, I will take that person to the cleaners." He further adds, "The condition that you need to sleep with me to get this job done, is the most disgusting thing possible."

When someone addresses us with 'Ram Ram' or 'Jai Shree Ram', we don't object to it or refuse to acknowledge the gesture. I don't think any of us have that problem here. We all have Hindu and Muslim relatives," concluded the 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' actor.
