Sandeepa feared `bhai-behen` role with Salman Khan

Mumbai: Actress Sandeepa Dhar has been a huge Salman Khan fan since her childhood, and when she got a chance for a cameo in ‘Dabangg 2’, all she wished was for a role in which she didn`t have to play sister to the star.

Sandeepa loved Salman`s style ever since she had watched `Hum Aapke Hain Koun...!`. Having nurtured a crush on Salman since her teens, being around Salman professionally was fantasy come true.

In her debut ‘Isi Life Mein’, Sandeepa`s character is shown to have a crush on Salman and her character ends up speaking to him on the phone. In real life, she is as much a fan of him, and so when she was called for a cameo in ‘Dabangg 2’, there was nothing which would have made her say no, says a source close to the actress.

She quietly checked the script and was happy the special appearance wasn`t a sister`s role, said the source.

"I used to tell Salman on the sets of `Dabangg 2` that it`s my dream to be in a film where there is Sooraj-ji (Sooraj Barjatya) and him together. Salman would say `Yes, hopefully soon`," Sandeepa said.

Once Salman said "meri behen" as part of a dialogue in reference to Sandeepa`s character on the sets. The dialogue was later edited.

"I am glad the brother-sister situation in `Dabangg 2` got averted on its own and as far as I am concerned, he was the knight in shining armour who saved my character," said Sandeepa.
