"I am very happy that Salman`s `Dabangg` got such a big success. That`s why I have come to give him a hug and congratulate him. I would always pray that his film makes 10 times more than what `3 Idiots` did," Aamir told reporters at the success party of the film held at Vie Lounge Sunday night.

When Malaika Arora Khan, who too features in the "Munni" song, was asked if she had expected her husband Arbaz`s debut production to be a record breaking hit, she said, "No, one can ever predict the fate of the film before hand, but, of course, we pray for its success. The magnitude of response and the collections of the film are overwhelming."
