"It's their personality, hardwork and dedication all put together. Then we do our bit and once the film releases, then it's up to you (the audience) to decide whether they will become one of us and remain in the industry," Salman added.

When asked whether it was important to have X-factor, Salman told reporters, "Yes, they have it in their personalities. I don't know where I lack that, but everyone I see has some quality in them."
