Mumbai: Not much of a cricket fan, Salman Khan returned home from Panvel early on Wednesday morning to throw an impromptu cricket party for friends and family at a restobar in Bandra.

This comes as a surprise as the actor was supposed to be far keener on pumping iron while at his Panvel farmhouse than watch than the Indo-Pak clash.  While most of India and B-Town had plans to watch the India-Pakistan World Cup semi final, Sallu was to pump iron at his gym.

Bigger place

Says a source, "He suddenly organised the bash considering he's never been much interested in cricket before. May be he heard Shah Rukh was having a party and wanted to counter that.

Normally, Sallu has his parties at home but the space at the restobar is bigger and he had invited lots of people. So, he couldn't have it at home."

The star even left the venue halfway to pick up his dad Salim Khan as he wanted him to also be part of the celebrations.
