Salman Khan gets a café named after him in Turkey!
Curious to find out what made Sallu bhai so popular among the Turks? Then read on…
While shooting for Ek Tha Tiger in Mardin, Turkey Salman Khan along with the entire cast and crew had a favouite hang-out joint – Café Del-Mar. But after spending some evenings at this place, apna Dabangg Khan realised that a few things were not right with this cozy café.
For starters, the music system wasn’t one of the best as per Salman’s standards. So this Robinhood of B-town decided to do the needful. “The music system wasn’t very good, so Salman sent someone to get a better one. He installed it at the café, played new music and after the shoot, left the sound system there,” director Kabir Khan says.
But that was far from all. “He (Salman) started with the décor and music and went on to the food and beverage menu. Towards the end of our stay, Café Del-Mar was a completely new place!” a birdie from the unit reveals.
Now after earning this special ‘Salman Khan’ touch, it would only be fair to give this hero some credit for it, right? And for the same reason the café owner decided to change the café’s name from Café Del-Mar to – hold your breath – Salman Khan Café!
But will Salman’s name prove to be the Midas touch for this quaint li’l eating joint? Readers, what do you think?
