The Bollywood bad boy not only participated in the race but also won the first place. He was awarded a trophy. After winning the trophy, Salman Khan told the reporters:
“I was a bit nervous (before the race). If I'd have lost, people would have thought Salman lost the race and if I'd have won then they would have said that he had to win because he is a star,”
Salman told the reporters that the race was not a set up. Like every other contestants of the race, he gave his hundred percent to win. Salman Khan’s next movie, Veer, is an epic action movie and it involved lots of horse riding. In the movie, Salman rode horse along with camels and elephants.
