Ali Larter of Resident Evil fame also took a liking for him...
BollywoodLife was the first to reveal the name of Salman's new co-star in his upcoming film Tubelight the Hollywood import, Chinese actress Zhu Zhu. While we can't get over the fact that Salman Khan will be back with his Bajrangi Bhaijaan director, we are equally excited about him sharing screen space with a foreign import, knowing his fixation towards them. Zhu Zhu, a Chinese actress and singer, rose to fame as VJ on MTV China. She went on to do films like What Women Want (2011) and Hollywood films like Cloud Atlas (2012), The Man with the Iron Fists (2012) and hit Netflix series Marco Polo (2014).
While we just can't be excited enough to see the fresh pairing on the big screen, next year, one should know, this is not the first time Salman Khan is acting alongside a Hollywood import. Remember the Salman Khan starrer 2007 dud, Marigold? No? We don't blame you for that. The film, a crossover venture by director Willard Carrol, had Ali Larter (Resident Evil, Final Destination) as Salman's co-star. This was the first time Salman Khan romanced a Hollywood import but the film sank without a trace. To understand how badly it performed, let's just say that the director is yet to direct another film and it's been nine years since then.
After that, he also produced a movie called Dr. Cabbie (2014) and launched Katrina Kaif's sister Isabela Kaif, we are all aware of, how that turned out for her career.
So this time when we got to know the Sultan star will be romancing another firang, we just couldn't help but think about the fate of his previous collaboration with a foreign import. Though the situation is different this time and Bhai is in the best phase of his career plus he is collaborating again with Kabir Khan, after the super success of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. We hope Tubelight goes the Bajrangi Bhaijaan way rather than the Marigold way.
