Mumbai (UNI) Popular Bollywood actor Salman Khan today said though it was probably easy to achieve success but to maintain it for long was very challenging. ''Success exhausts you, drains you out of all finer feelings,'' the actor said writing on his blog. Dwelling on the present era, in which money and competition are big, Salman said some people in the film industry suffer more from insecurities and personal fears.
''Since I don't care much about money and ratings, I have far less fear and insecurities. I have many hobbies and I prefer to indulge in them rather than mud-slinging. I have never manipulated the media or relationships,'' he said. ''Stardom gives me a lot of fringe benefits, but it also brings a lot of pressures. My self-belief helps me handle pressures and sail through it,'' the actor added.
