Salim Khan: When I came to become an actor, I thought I could outdo Dilip Kumar

Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, recently saw the launch of its children's book titled as 'Geography with Bajrangi Bhaijaan'. Also present for the launch was Salman's father Salim Khan and at the event he spoke about the importance of education and how it helped him when he had nowhere to go.

When asked Salim Khan about how did they come up with the idea, he said, "My father used to tell us to study a lot which in turn helped me a lot because when I came to become an actor, main samajta tha ki Dilip Kumar ki dukaan bandh karva dung (I used to think that I could outdo Dilip Kumar).
