Salman Khan takes the stage to accept an award after 14 years of playing the avoidance game
Salman Khan may have had several blockbusters at the box office but the star is known to avoid going on the stage to pick up awards
However, after a gap of nearly 14 years Sallu was back on the podium to accept an award - Best Brand Endorser - conferred on him.
A source says, `It is ironic that when Salman started his career, he didn't win any awards. But when he actually began winning trophies, he didn't go to collect them. However, for this one he made an exception. `
The last time Sallu accepted an award himself was for Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The source says, `When the result was announced he couldn't believe he had won. Members of the audience had to prompt him to go to the stage and accept his trophy. `
