The 52-year-old actor said in a statement: "The first time I came to Mumbai as a struggling actor, I had my meals at Salman's place where Salim Khan ji supported me a lot. It is because of them I have become ‘Shah Rukh Khan'. I have come on the show only because of Salman and I will go wherever he tells me to go."
