Mumbai: Bollywood megastar Salman Khan left his imprint in Turkey while he was there to shoot for his new film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ in quite a unique way. If you ever happen to be in Turkey, look for the eatery that’s been named after our very own Salman Khan.

Earlier known as the Café Del-Mar in the city of Mardin in Turkey, the popular local hangout point is now known as the Salman Khan Café.

Reportedly, while shooting for ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ in Mardin, Salman and the rest of the crew would often visit Café Del-Mar, which was close to their shooting location. Salman, however, thought that the cafe needed a facelift, and went on to suggest various changes.

“He (Salman) started with the décor and music and went on to the food and beverage menu. Towards the end of our stay, Café Del-Mar was a completely new place!” said a source from the unit, adding, “It eventually came to be known as Salman Khan Café.”

A Yash Raj Films spokesperson confirms, “Café Del-Mar is now referred to as Salman Khan Café as its identity has changed. They used to look forward to having Salman and the entire gang visit every day.”
