New York: Filmmaker Kabir Khan, who has directed Salman Khan for three projects, says they share immense "mutual respect".
Kabir has worked with Salman in Ek Tha Tiger, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Tubelight. And even while Tubelight had dim earnings at the box office, it has had no effect on the understanding and admiration that the two share.
"I think it's just mutual respect for each other's work," Kabir said here on being asked what makes them click creatively.
"He sees something in me and he feels that I will bring something to a character, and I see him as a performer who can bring so much to a character I write. So, there's mutual respect.
"That's the reason why the two of us try and do something new when the two of us get together."
