Long before Sooraj Barjatya happened in Salman Khan’s life, it was renouned ad-filmmaker Kailash Surendranath and his mother Aarti who detected a budding talent of 15-year-old Salman Khan and gave a actor his initial mangle in a Campa Cola ad.
Kailash and Aarti have been tighten friends with Salman ever given and a husband-wife span gathering all a approach to Salman’s plantation residence in Panvel on Saturday ( Dec 26) night to wish and applaud a superstar’s 50th birthday. In an disdainful review with The IndianExpress.com, Kailash and Aarti revisited a time when they initial met Salman Khan.
Kailash Surendranth: we initial met Salman when we were casting actors for an announcement of Campa Cola. We had designed to fire underwater in Andaman islands and were gearing adult to leave within in a week’s time with a organisation that consisted of tip models like Ayesha (Jackie Shroff’s wife), my mother Arti. We had expel roughly everybody and indispensable one some-more actor who could float well. Arti’s father was incharge of Hotel Sea Rock during Bandra where they had a bar as well. He used to tell her about his good crony Mr. Salim Khan’s son and how we should cruise him for a shoot. One day, Arti walked into a bar after finishing a fire and saw a immature Salman Khan diving from one finish of a pool, swimming underwater and entrance out of a other end. However, when we hear Salman revelation a story today, he has his indicate of view. He says when he saw Arti walking in a red sari, he motionless to stir her and dived.
Now Arti came and told me that there is this male and we contingency take him since he is a good swimmer. So, we pronounced fine and asked if he could see me in my bureau subsequent morning. The subsequent day Salman came in with his aunt. we looked during him and went outward to ring Arti adult immediately. we afterwards asked her, ‘who have we sent in. He is a 15-year aged child. How can we take him?’ Arti said, ‘Don’t worry. Ask him to take off his shirt.’ So Salman took off his shirt and we saw that he had a illusory build. He had a swimmer’s body. He wasn’t doing any weights afterwards though he had extended shoulders and good tangible muscles. We finalised him and went to Andaman. It is here that we strike it off large time and shaped a lifetime bond. we was comparison than him though we still connected. He was unequivocally mischievous and energetic. we was holding appetite from him and he was training a lot from me. We used to dope around and have a lot of fun during a shoot. we remember me and him personification a telepathy diversion with other organisation who used to be confused as to how we could review any others minds. And that was something that we both had worked out.”
“The fire itself was fabulous. we remember we were sharpened on a Navy vessel and a camera had bloody out reflectors on actors since of that Salman couldn’t open his eyes. We didn’t have any additional sunglasses with us. So, we asked a camera male to switch off a reflectors and we took a shot. Salman remembers that unequivocally well. He is also a unequivocally good swimmer. we was manning a underwater camera during that time and he was a initial one to dive off a tip of a boat. Another occurrence that we remember is how while we were sharpened in a water, a navy unit vessel came in and asked out to get out as it was full of sharks. But Salman remained cold and stoical and he has always been dauntless compartment date. That’s how we me and bonded. Back in Mumbai, he used to come to my office, home, accommodate my relatives and we became family.
We done a lot of other commercials together. We did a film with him and Sangeeta Bijlani where she got paid 5 times some-more than Salman since she was a bigger star. we remember once holding to him to a customer and we were formulation to do a smashing fire in Kashmir. But a customer deserted him observant he is too brief and a lady is too high for him. So, we had all kinds of practice together.

Salman also became fiercely eccentric unequivocally early in life. Before he did Maine Pyaar Kiya, we used to go clubbing in South Mumbai. we remember jokingly revelation him, after many nights of merrymaking and waking adult late, ‘Salman, since are we wasting your time and your father’s money.’ we usually pronounced it as a fun and we started laughing. But he tells me after that day he never ever took income from home. That is a time when he started focusing on films and modelling. And a rest is history.
Salman is unequivocally perceptive. He has this knack of reading between a lines when someone says something. He also has an implausible memory. we contingency also tell we that he is unequivocally frank about women and girlfriends. we have famous him all these years. The press also knows about all his girlfriends. But he has never treated a lady badly ever. He has always had that courtesy for all his women. He is a bit regressive when it comes to his relationships. Yes there were break-ups though not since of his bad poise as it was reported mostly though maybe since he is not a committing type. As we can see he is still not committed.
I and Arti gathering all a approach to Panvel yesterday night to applaud his birthday. His farmhouse is distant off though to see so many people attending usually speaks volumes about his goodwill. He is unequivocally tighten to Arti. Yesterday, he got a bit romantic and told her it is all since of we that all this has happened. But we don’t feel so. You can’t take credit for anybody’s destiny. He was unfailing to be a star. What is unequivocally smashing is that we still share a same relationship. We don’t accommodate any other frequently though a bond is still clever and that is a nicest thing about Salman. He might call adult during 4 in a morning and come home and have Parathas and Bhurji. He is biggest star in a nation though is still same aged grounded, common male from Bandra.
Salman is one of India’s biggest superstars though he is one of a many humblest and inexhaustible persons we have ever met. The day we saw him, we knew he would be a large star. we used to tell everybody to watch out for him. No one used to trust me and used to consternation since we am compelling him so much. But we knew he was unfailing to be a star. He also loves kids and dotes on them. While sharpened for Phir Mile Sur, Salman connected naturally with a physically challenged kids. He learnt a pointer denunciation fast and communicated with a kids. That is what creates him so lovable.
