Salman Khan, who turned 53 today, said love and respect of the audience is more precious to him than his stardom.
While addressing the media yesterday before his birthday celebrations, the Tiger Zinda Hai star said, "I am happy that people love me so much. Stardom matters in a way but what makes me happier is the love and respect of people."
