Mumbai, Jul 29 (UNI) Popular Bollywood actor Salman Khan has said it was unfortunate that people in the film industry were jealous of others' success and don't take it in a positive manner.
''Every time someone is successful, there will be another trying to pull him down. He does not increase his efforts to become successful, but always try to downplay someone else's success,'' the actor wrote on his blog.
''A man is good, they say, but it is said in the past tense. A lot of people would talk highly about the successful man, but only once the person is dead, these people, whoever they are, are doing their job, only what they know to do best,'' he observed.
The actor is not only upset about his spat with Shah Rukh Khan, but the way in which the media covered it and the general politics of the film industry.
Salman, who is currently hosting Sony TV's reality game show 'Dus Ka Dum', said ''one should behave as though a barking dog was chasing your car. You don't stop the car and start reacting to the dog. You don't! There's no point. I don't wish to react. I don't have the time for it. Besides, I don't understand the language of dogs, except for my two - Myson and Myjaan,'' the actor said.
He had a spat with Shah Rukh during the birthday party of Katrina Kaif on July 16.
He reportedly instigated Shah Rukh by speaking about the latter's reality show 'Kya aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?.
Salman claimed that his show 'Dus Ka Dum' had garnered more TRPs than Shah Rukh's. Industry sources said the actor scoffed at Shah Rukh saying that despite being a superstar he could not make his show a hit.
The war of words later turned rather ugly and Aamir Khan had to intervene.
