Be it his protégés, admirers or colleagues, almost everyone in the Tinsel Town has a say about Salman Khan. We have picked the top quotes from five of these celebs. Here you go.
Once very close to Salman, her former boyfriend, Katrina considers him a huge influence in her professional life. Talking a to a popular film magazine, she said, "I can’t speak for other people but at the end of the day, your work has to credit you and it has to take you forward, but personally do I think Salman’s advice has been important? Yes, I think it’s been invaluable. He’s had a very strong basic sense of the working of the film industry, so that’s helpful. But it’s quite similar to Anushka Sharma and all other YRF protégés having Adi (Aditya Chopra) advise them. In my case having Salman and his circle to give me advice was definitely very useful and very important.
“I often talk about Salman because he made me realise what I was capable of. It was something that not even me or my family recognised. He spent four years training and guiding me.” (Source: DNA)

From offering her painting lessons for `Lootera` and even allowing his business manager to handle the budding actress`s work, Salman has done a lot for making Jr. Shotgun aka Sonakshi what she is today in Bollywood. And Sona, on her part, is very vocal about Salman`s generosity. "The credit absolutely goes to Salman. He always encouraged me. When I was studying fashion, at that time he used to tell me leave all this and become an actress. I was like very huge (overweight) that time and used to ask him how can you see an actress in me? He encouraged me to become fit and join the film industry. I will always be thankful to him," she said. (Source: IANS)

Salman Yusuff Khan
For this Bollywood debutant, Salman Khan is every bit of an ideal human being. In a conversation with Zeenews.com earlier this year, Salman Yusuff Khan defended Salman`s temperamental nature and praised him at length by saying: "I’ll tell you one thing that even if God came down from heaven; even then people would try finding faults in Him. Second, Salman bhai is a friend of friends and the worst nightmare for his enemies. He is not a fake person. Before the media, he is not like ‘Oh I have to put my best face forward’. He behaves the way he is. Other people behave well before the media even when they are angry inside. Salman bhai is real. And that is how a human being should be."
