"I hope my films keep becoming hits, and being compared to Salman is a huge honour," the 33-year-old said here Sunday at a theatre during the screening of "Raaz 3."
However, he feels he still has a long way to go.
"I think I have got a lot of work to do, I have been in the industry for just nine years. He is a senior and very encouraging," added Emraan.
Emraan's recent films - "Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai", "Murder 2", "The Dirty Picture", "Jannat 2" and "Shanghai", received a fairly good response at the box office, and his latest movie "Raaz 3", which released Friday, also got a good opening.
Meanwhile, when asked why he features in only bold films, Emraan said: "No one gives me such (universal) films. When someone gives me a universal subject, I'll do it."
Emraan's forthcoming films include "Ghanchakkar" , "Ek Thi Daayan" and "Unglee."
