Actor Salman Khan has admitted that it is very difficult to compete with the younger lot of actors today as it keeps getting harder, the older a person gets. The actor manages to outdo his competition due to the immense faith shown in him by his fans. "My fans keep me going. The older you get the harder it is to keep going as you need to compete with your juniors and it is difficult. Today competing with juniors is very difficult," Salman said.

The actor interacted with the media at an event organised to announce the upcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards-2017. The award function will take place on July 13-15 in New York at the MetLife Stadium. Salman revealed that he will be performing at the award show and will also take part in other activities. The actor has been nominated in the Best Actor category this year for his performance in the film 'Sultan' but Salman feels that he won't be taking home any awards this season. He said that the love of the fans is enough for him as he doesn't consider awards as his 'thing'.

Salman is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film 'Tubelight' which has been directed by Kabir Khan. The film features Salman in a unique role and is based on the Hollywood film 'little boy'. The film will also feature Salman's brother Sohail Khan in an important role. 'Tubelight' is scheduled to release in cinemas on the occasion of Eid.
