There is no denying the fact that Salman Khan is among the biggest superstars of Bollywood in the present times and with the smashing success of “Tiger Zinda Hai”, he has once again proved that no other actor can pull the crowd to the theatres like the way he can.
The “Tubelight” star recently celebrated his 52nd birthday but looking at his fitness level, it is quite difficult to believe that he is 52 years old. In “Tiger Zinda Hai”, Salman plays the character of a RAW agent and this is what the director of the movie Ali Abbas Zafar has to say about the superstar,
“At the age of 50 to do all this within six to eight months takes a lot of hard work. Even when he was not working on sets he had to train for four hours. This is phenomenal for an actor enjoying such stardom.”
When Salman was asked to comment on the manner in which he looked in the film and the way he did the action sequences, he told Mid-Day,
“My body is like a diesel engine, ek baar garam ho gaya toh chalta rahega.” “(My body is like a diesel engine, once it gets hot it keeps going on).”
He further added,
“I can’t do handstands, or put my body upside down. But, apart from that, I can easily pull off quick movements, like forward and back somersault, or floor rolls.”
There was one person who couldn’t stop himself from commenting on Salman’s statement related to diesel engine and he is Anand Mahindra, the Chairman of Mahindra Group.
Anand Mahindra is pretty active on Twitter and he wrote, “Well in that case, Cheetah (XUV) Zinda Hai…”
Here is the tweet:
Well in that case, Cheetah (XUV) Zinda Hai… https://t.co/bbJ7kpgg5U

Here with Cheetah, Anand Mahindra meant Mahindra XUV500 SUV. Mahindra has always promoted Mahindra XUV500 SUV as Cheetah in all its promotional activities in a bid to prove it athletic and lithe like the fastest animal of the world.
This is how Twitter reacted over Anand Mahindra’s tweet:
Wrong choice……diesel's are better than the Khan in picture they dont shoot deers…..diesel's only belch smoke……
