Then, he went a few years back and shared how he couldn’t afford a pair of jeans, or boots, and how Suniel Shetty helped him. “When I didn’t have any money, actor Suniel Shetty had a shop called Mischief and I was eyeing a pair of stone wash jeans, boots, and a purse. I knew I couldn’t afford it because I didn’t have money. But Anna saw my eyes and decided to gift me what I yearned.” Salman shared his story while reaching toward Suniel son’s Ahan. He tried to hold back his tears, but couldn’t do so. He hugged Jr Shetty and continued sharing his struggle.
Then, Salman also shared how producer Ramesh Taurani helped him to get work after the 6 months break. He said that after Maine Pyar Kiya, no one offered him anything for six months. “I didn’t have any film for 6 months. Then a god-like man came in my life – Ramesh Taurani. At that time my father had made a fake announcement from JP Sippy by paying 2000 rupees in a film magazine. I didn’t have any film. Ramesh Taurani went to Sippy’s office and he gave him 5 lakh rupees for music at that time and that’s how I got the film Pathar Ke Phool.” On the work front, Salman will next be seen in Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and Tiger 3.
