Bollywood Actor Salman Khan has found out a new way out to beat his habit of giving expensive gifts. As advised by his mother, he has asked Being Human, his charity foundation, to manufacture designer watches in-house.
Salman Khan is known to have gifted watches worth as much as Rs.50 crores to his friends and family.
The first one to receive the designer watch was Salman’s co-star in Wanted. Yes! That is Aseem Merchant.
“He gave me his the first Being Human watch. It’s awesome. Its look and movement are as slick as the super-exclusive Swiss Breitling watches,” Aseem said.
“You’re right. He did say his mom advised him to find a way of cutting down costs on his watch-gifting habit. He gave me the watch and said, ‘Your time begins now.’,” he added.
Apart from the watch, Salman also gifted Aseem a Being Human shirt.
It is celebrity time at Salman Khan’s game show 10 ka Dum season 2 on Sony Entertainment Television.
This time it is Bollywood’s hot chick Mallika Sherawat and Olympian boxing champ Vijender Singh her counterpart from Haryana.
Getting the answers right turned out to be a brainteaser for both of them.
Brain seemed to take a backseat between beauty and brains.
When the actress revealed that she is taking cooking classes these days, host Salman Khan got excited and rolled his sleeves to get in action. While Mallika was still struggling to get her chapatti in the right shape, Salman quickly roled a neat one.
In Arbaaz Khan’s venture as a producer, Salman Khan would be seen as a boorish cop for the first time in his career. In this film, Salman plays the role of a corrupt policeman from Uttar Pradesh.
The film is titled as Dabangg and is being directed by Anurag Kashyap’s brother, Abhinav Kashyap.
It has been a long time that Slamn had maintained his ‘cool dude’ aura which he will now give up. The role in this film demands him to be uncouth and unpolished. He will also have to master UP accent and slang for that.
“This role is terrific. Salman’s fans have never seen him like this before. Besides, I haven’t cast Salman because he is my brother, but he fits the character perfectly. When Abhinav offered me a role in the film, I immediately wanted to produce it. For long, I had been toying with the idea of turning producer. This was just the excuse I needed to take the plunge”, Arbaaz says.
The film will debut Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi and will also have a small role for Arbaaz himself.
Talking about the unusual casting, Arbaaz says, “There’s no point in casting a heroine who has already been seen four times with Salman. I wanted to cast a stunning new girl and Sonakshi fits the bill. She has lost a lot of weight. She still needs to lose a little more.”
Salman Khan has been known in the industry for his spontaneity and pranks.
Salman Khan asked actor Neil Nitin Mukesh not call Katrina ‘sweetheart’ and took him for a ride recently by her spontaneous nature.
Viewers of his show ‘Dus Ka Dum’ always feel that Salman makes people laugh by laughing at them and laughing at himself too.
Recently when Neil Nitin Mukesh and Katrina Kaif were present at his show, he made Neil crack up on the show by asking him weird questions. He asked Neil if the entire film New York was shot in New York itself.
“Yashraj is a big banner and they shoot wherever it is required to and spare no costs,” replied Neil earnestly. To this Salman instantly reacted “Lucky you, we shot for London Dreams in Punjab!”
So naturally Salman would be at his charming best whilst working with Hollywood beauty Ali Larter in his Hollywood film Marigold. Sources claim that Sallu …

She was brought up in Hawaii, and started modeling by accident at the age of 14, when she was approached for a jewelery campaign.
