The Jai Ho actor’s fondness for the Swedish beauty on Bigg Boss 7 was much talked about and looks like he has carried that impression of the Mickey Virus heroine even outside the show

Is Elli Avram the new gal in Salman Khan’s life? Well, it might just be too early to answer that question but one cannot ignore the fact that Ms Avram does have a special place. The Jai Ho actor chose Elli to step into his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif’s shoes to perform on Ek Tha Tiger‘s popular song Mashallah at the Bigg Boss 7 grand finale. Now that doesn’t come as a surprise considering that Elli did remind Sallu of Kat and he even admitted that on the show. So then should we call this the perfect casting by the actor? We would rather leave it to your imagination. Elli was amongst many others who made a beeline at Salman Khan’s Panvel farmhouse for his big birthday bash. And we couldn’t help but notice how Elli had a bright broad smile fixed on her face that got the jasoos in us thinking if Elli was Sallu’s special guest?

Apart from Elli, the other guest who managed to surprise us was a certain Kushal Tandon, considering that Salman and Kushal didn’t share friendly vibes on the show. Now, was all that nautanki just for the cameras, we don’t know… But we definitely wanna know what’s cooking between Salman and Elli? BollywoodLifers, do you think Elli Avram will be the next Katrina Kaif in Salman Khan’s life?
