Patiala: Pakistani popstar Ali Zafar got a fitting reward for a daring rescue act on the sets of the film `Mere Brother Ki Dulhan` when he stepped into save leading lady Katrina Kaif from a mishap.

The `Prince of Pop` jumped in to rescue the Bollywood head-turner when her hair got stuck in a pedestal fan on the sets of the Yash Raj movie which is being shot at Nabha near here.

According to eyewitnesses, Zafar suffered minor bruises on his arm while Kaif who was terrified after the incident expressed her gratitude by giving the `Tere Bin Laden` actor a
big hug.

However, a spot boy who was also injured in the incident was not so lucky.

In the past, similar rescues on film sets have proved to be typically `filmi`, with the saviour and victim falling for each other. A case in point being Sunil Dutt`s courageous act to save Nargis from raging fire on the sets of `Mother India`. The couple had soon tied the knot.

But the `Sajaniya` hitmaker is already married and is the father of a young child, while Kaif has been linked to Ranbir Kapoor after she reportedly split from Salman Khan.

The actress` first meeting with her co-star had turned uncomfortable after Zafar failed to recognise her when she went up to him at a party.
