Mumbai: Many people do not know that Salman Khan is also an exceptional painter. Once in a while, the actor picks up the brush to give an expression to his artistic urge. The latest to interest Sallu bhai is his co-star of ‘Dabangg’ - debutante and Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi. So impressed is Salman with this newbie that he has decided to paint her.
Of late, the two are having a blast on the sets of ‘Dabangg’. A little birdie confirms that Sallu, not only enjoyed doing a rain dance sequence with her, but the actor is also promoting her and showering her with praises on social networking sites.
If we go by the latest reports, Salman seems very interested to paint a picture of Sonakshi. Validating the facts a unit member on the sets of ‘Dabanng’ tells us, “They get along well... Salman is a good painter; he has painted Aamir and Asin previously, now he’s going to paint Sonakshi. They get along well, and share great camaraderie, so the painting comes as no surprise. Even Sonakshi is keen that bhai does a painting of hers...”
Well, some might speculate if this chemistry is for real or just a promotion for the film, but a source asserts that, “It’s for real... but it also helps the promotion, we’re sure. But bhai isn’t that calculative. He is genuinely fond of Sonakshi.”
