Padma Shri 2015

Screenwriter Salim Khan declined to receive Padma Shri claiming that it didn't match his status and body of work. "For years, the central government has ignored me, honouring a number of my peers as well as juniors in the industry. Some three days ago, when I heard that my name is on the Padma awards list, I thought that I’m finally getting what I deserve. But when I came to know that the ministry has chosen me for Padma Shri, I felt it does not match my status and work," said Salim Khan. Jan 26, 2015
