Me, I am giving Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, all these guys a chance. Otherwise...poor guys
He was voted the seventh-best-looking man in the world and the best looking man in India by US's People magazine in 2004 -- but Salman Khan has maintained his distance from Hollywood, and says he has his reasons.
The Bollywood star unleashed his funny side when asked about the reason at an event organised by Indo-American Chamber Of Commerce (IACC) earlier this week. "All my friends who have gone to America, they don't even want to come back for a holiday, wonder why. I am an actor, those guys were the 'sensible' ones, educated - engineers, doctors, scientists. These guys went there and made a lot of money, respect," he said.
"Me, I am giving Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, all these guys a chance. Otherwise...poor guys," the 46-year-old said here in a humourous way."
Salman also targeted Hollywood films.
"Amazing movies, they make anything look good. Like for example the names I took, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise. We just go on emotions and heart. We overdo anything, I mean guys like us also look really bad," said Salman.
He wrapped up the response with his arch-rival, superstar Shah Rukh Khan's famous dialogue from 'My Name Is Khan': "I mean my name is actually Khan and I actually am not a terrorist."
Besides Salman, actress Nargis Fakhri was also present at the event, where Tata Consultancy Services was formally honoured as the overall best Indian Company operating in the US at the 8th Indo American Corporate Excellence Awards.

"You remind me of Shabana Azmi," guffaws our don't-give-a-damn hero to the social activist heroine. In the first-half they clash over idlis, ideologies and idle chatter. Mismatched as they are, and we are reminded twice that she is older, Kareena Kapoor-Khan and Imran Khan trudge along cutely till mid-point after which the narrative shuffles noisily into a village in Gujarat where it all falls apart.
"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
