In an interview with a newspaper, Bollywood star Salman Khan has said, his best is yet to come. 

Salman's Bodyguard releases during Eid festival and the actor is busy giving interviews. .

In the interview, Salman denied that he has hit upon the formula for success.

" As long as luck is on my side, the going will be good. The audience has to love my work for a film to be a hit. When you start flying high, God knocks sense into you and tells you, 'Idiot, don't act too smart or you'll fall flat.' It's always about choosing the right option."

Asked whether he was nervous about his forthcoming film, Salman said:

"No, I'm focused on the job at hand. It's not like I'm in NASA and researching on cars running on water, instead of petrol. In cinema, we're more guided by emotions and gut feeling. Once the audience starts getting tired, they won't like your films."

Asked why usually released his films during Eid, like Aamir used to do at Christmas time, Salman replied

: "It's not about Eid. If I release a lousy film, then people won't see it. People decide whether they want to see the movie or no after watching the promos. With Bodyguard, I'm catering to all kinds of people. Bodyguard's second half is more for men. And they will have khushi ke aansoon in the end. Why would I want you to spend money to get bored and shed tears of sadness?"

About Katrina in the film, Salman said: "Katrina is there in just the song. I've been Katrina's bodyguard so far in real life. So why not in reel life also?"

"The reason I started doing all these action films is to get into a fitness routine. I certainly feel fitter today than I was earlier, and I attribute this to eating correctly and working out regularly. If I indulge in desserts after dinner, then I ensure I burn those calories later."

Asked when he would begin writing and directing movies, Sallu replied: "That's for later. Jab time kharab hoga, not like it is now. When people don't want to see me any more, then I'll think of writing and directing."

Asked whether the current period was the best phase of his career, Salman said: "No. I think that is yet to come."
