  • Salman Khan

He has some very interesting and exciting movies in hand, his fan following has not tapered and is getting noticed by the global media. Well the 51-year-old star has been honoured by UK's House of Common, which if we are to look at from the point of view of the Indian Parliamentary system, it is equivalent to our Lok Sabha.

Salman Khan received a Global Diversity Award at Britain's House of Commons from Keith Vaz, British Parliament's longest-serving Asian MP.

Keith Vaz, British Parliament's longest-serving Asian MP said in a statement, "The Global Diversity Award is given to people of vast stature in terms of what they have done for diversity in the world, and he is certainly one of them".

Salman Khan is in London as he just completed the Abu Dhabi schedule of Tiger Zinda Hai. However, this one will be helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar who had directed Sultan. Bollywood actressSonakshi Sinha, Jacqueline Fernandez, Choreographer turned director Prabhudheva, actor Sooraj Pancholi and rapper Badshah are also part of the ambitious tour. The film is a sequel to their 2012 film Ek Tha Tiger and both the actors will reprise their roles. There are horses, tanks, big weapons and there's this whole army, military backdrop. "I can not tell you what the true story is, as Adi (Aditya Chopra) will kill me!"
