It won't be wrong to call Salman Khan the biggest superstar of India at present. The opening as well as the lifetime figures of each of his films are a proof of that. In a country where he, along with Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, is deemed as a demigod of sorts, it's very difficult to imagine him feeling incompetent. But it did happen and the actor who made him feel incompetent as an actor is not Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn or Hrithik Roshan. It is in fact someone unexpected and that actor is fan favourite comedian Sunil Grover aka Dr. Mashoor Gulati. During an interview with Anupama Chopra for Film Companion, Salman talked about his acting talent and was of opinion that there are many people who are talented than he is and he is just plain lucky.

And I was like, I just lucked out, so I need to appreciate the fact and I need to keep working harder. He has come in as that Doctor, he is not doing any comedy, he's just playing a character. Then after that he's just come in as Mr Bachchan, Uff you have to see that! OH MY GOD! It was like we both thought we are sitting in front of Mr. Bachchan and he's not doing any comedy, he's not doing mimicry. He is straight out playing it. What and how Mr. Bachchan is in real life, I mean he's got the nuances, not the filmy ones, (but) the real life ones. I have never seen anything like that and I was just looking at him. I just felt so incompetent at that time. You know everyone can be, "Ae Saala Tum Hain! It's not that. It is how he comes..."
