Shahrukh and Akshay had no godfathers. Veeru Devgan was only a action director. Salim Khan was a scriptwriter. Tahir Hussain was a producer. The excuses of actors made by godfathers are totally baseless. If so Rishi, Kumar Gaurav, Bobby, Abhishek, Uday Chopra, Sohail, Arbaaz, Faisal, SANJAY Kapoor, Amit Kumar, Farhan etc would have been all megastars. But stardom needs hardworking, talent, luck. Salman is convincing in action roles because of his hardwork in bodybuilding despite having a romantic face and not because he is Salim Khan, s son.
