He is the most wanted Khan who makes ladies hearts go dhak-dhak, he gets the cash registers ringing at the box-office and is very deserving of the Dabangg Khan title rightly referred to as the eternal bachelor of B-town
Everyone from Shahrukh Khan to Priyanka Chopra have aped Salman Khan on various occasions. He is the god-father of many newcomers and guess what in his already growing list of fans there’s a new name. While we at Bollywoodlife were first to tell you about uncanny similarities between Shahid Kapoor from Phata Poster Nikla Hero and Salman Khan from Dabangg here’s the truth from the horse’s mouth. Shahid confessed in a recent interview that he is indeed emulating SK, “He (Shahid’s character) is a very big fan of Salman Khan and in one scene we have even worn a ‘Being Human’ t-shirt and in another scene, the character has gone to buy vegetables with his mother and his hands are full and he is eating a banana standing and watching the poster of ‘Dabangg 2’.” So is it just the character that is a die-hard Salman fan? Sasha is however very excited about sharing screen space with Sallu, “There’s a little scene in the film where Salman sir is there…Salman sir was kind enough to do a special appearance in the film.”
While Sallu’s mere presence has been cashed in by many filmmakers who sell their films with mere cameos by the star (remember Preity Zinta’s Ishq in Paris, Sohail Khan’s Hello); this is not the first time the actor is making a special appearance in a Rajkumar Santoshi film. Salman also featured in ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif’s film opposite Ranbir Kapoor Ajab Prem ki Gazab Kahani.
So is Santoshi using more than just Salman’s cameo appearance to win the audience this time around? Is a Shahid Kapoor not good-enough to back a film? Well these are questions only Mr Santoshi and Shahid can answer. Do we like Sasha’s Sallu act? Well, the Kaminey actor did look convincing as the Dabangg Khan!
