New Delhi: Bollywood star Salman Khan rescued brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri on the sets of ‘Bodygaurd’ when actress Kareena Kapoor fell ill.

The star wasn`t required on sets on that particular day because his co-star Kareena`s solo portions were being filmed, but shooting came to a halt after the actress fell ill.

"The shooting had come to a halt since Kareena fell ill and Salman wasn`t expected till much later. A lot of time would have been wasted and nearly 200 people would have been left hanging if it weren`t for Salman`s quick thinking," said a source.

In order to make it on time Salman took the same helicopter that had flown him to Jaipur that morning back to Pune.

Said Agnihotri: "Salman bhai saved a day`s shooting for us after Kareena fell ill and was advised two days` bed rest. We were canning a song that day and so I didn`t have a supporting cast to fall back on. I requested Salman bhai to return early and he was back by the time we`d finished lunch. And we shot some solo portions with him."
