Mumbai: When Salman Khan does a dance act, he is singularly unique. He not only does his own steps but also adds his own bits to the act. The star sure knows how to play to the audience with his hilarious act.
But what the star did on Tuesday night at the MMRDA grounds was equally so. He was slated to shoot for his performance at the Golden Petal awards a day after the ceremony. But before the shoot began he wanted to play with a kid who was hanging around the sets. When he felt he had done his baby talking with the child, he desired to pump some iron, so he took time off to do some bulking up. By the time the shoot wrapped up it was 2 am!
Sallu had attended the awards event on Monday night at the same venue where Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Malaika Arora Khan, Kirron Kher and a host of television artistes performed. But Sallu who was in Dubai a day earlier for a stage show, arrived late for the event and preferred to shoot for his act the following day.
Says a source, “Salman arrived at the grounds on Tuesday around 7 pm. Just when he was about to begin he spotted a unit hand’s kid who was accompanying his father to the shoot. Everyone knows that Sallu adores children so he remained inseparable from him. Once he had finished playing with the kid and everyone thought he would be ready for the rehearsals, he decided to do a bout of exercises so that he would appear pumped up for the act.”
Adds the source, “It was only after he had wrapped up his workouts that he began rehearsals for the act. Apart from his solo act, he also performed with several well-known small screen characters. As usual he did his own bits while talking throughout the act to them!”
