Audience reaction more important to me than awards: Salman
Mumbai: Salman Khan, whose blockbuster film ‘Dabangg’ bagged the 58th National Film Award for best film in wholesome entertainment category, said he is happy with the award but audience reaction is more important to him.
"Awards and rewards, we were already given by the people of the country long ago for the film. Now the people forced the government of India that this award should go to `Dabangg` only. This award is important to me but people are more important. So I was as it is very happy that people enjoyed the film," the 45-year-old actor told reporters here.
