Mumbai: After the Katrina fiasco, Salman ‘Dabangg’ Khan is aggressively promoting his ‘Veer’ co-star Zarine in Anees Bazmee’s ‘Ready’.
Apparently, Salman and Zarine share a sizzling on-screen chemistry in ‘Character Dheela’ - a hot item number from ‘Ready’.
Interestingly, the much hyped ‘Character Dheela’ song was initially meant for Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandes; however, Salman gave strict orders to the crew that he only wanted Zarine in the song.
As a result, Jacqueline’s sudden removal from ‘Character Dheela’ was cloaked as ‘date issues’.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “Salman ne kaha ki Zarine ko lena hai. And who can argue with Salman? So, Zarine it was.”
“It is known that Salman has a soft corner for Zarine. Add this to his helpful nature and you get the complete picture. In other words, Salman ne kisike sar pe haath rakh diya, toh woh uske liye kuch bhi karega,” added the source.
Now that’s Salman ‘Dabangg’ Khan for you!
