Salman told the audience that the decision to choose the best man lies with them. "I do not belong to Gujarat. I am from Mumbai and it doesn't matter what I want or don't want. It is you who should decide who is the best man to lead the nation."

"Every constituency has its own nature and it is the people of the constituency who is the best judge of the leader. For me, Baba Siddique and Priya Dutt get the votes," he added. Siddique and Dutt are the Congress MLA and MP from the Bandra West area in Mumbai where Khan resides.
