Mumbai: For many, controversy’s favourite child Salman Khan might be a big time baddie, but for many others, he is a sweet heart and a best friend.

Preity Zinta, who happens to be one of his co-stars, has always remained thick friends with the superstar. The dimpled beauty is busy now a debutant film producer has spoken her heart out about the ‘Dabangg’ Khan.

Talking to reporters about the song ‘Kudiye Di Kurti’ from her film ‘Ishq in Paris’, that features Salman, Preity said, “This song was always part of the film. It is situational and an integral part of the film. The only actor I approached for this film was Salman and he agreed. I think it is not correct to take crutches for anything in life.”

Preity has worked with Salman in `Chori Chori Chupke Chupke`, `Har Dil Jo Pyar karega` and `Heroes` and has been friends with him since then.
Expressing what Salman Khan means to her, Preity said, “Our relation goes back ten years and he has always been supportive. He is has been a friend, who has always been there irrespective of what the media or people say, he has a big heart. He is honest straight forward guy. For me he is so awesome.”

And she also added, “For me, my first film as a producer has been an uphill task because you have to work hard in whatever you do. But he being there has made a huge difference to me.”
