Mumbai: We all saw the amazingly entertaining episode of ‘Jhalak Dikhla Ja’ where Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif enthralled the audience with their antics while promoting their new film ‘Ek That Tiger’.
While the live audience went crazy, every time their favourite superstar danced to his popular numbers, the makers of the dance reality show had a tough time handling the whims and fancies of the moody star.
A tabloid reports that even though Salman had come to the set to promote his new film, the actor had put forward several conditions before the makers before agreeing to appear on the show.
The episode was to have contestants perform on popular Hindi films jodis. Salman had specifically asked the makers to not have any of his and former girlfriend Aishwarya’s song featured on the show.
Speaking to the tabloid, a source revealed, “Salman was set to appear on the jodi-special episode. As most of the jodis had chosen to perform on his film songs, the actor had specified he did not want any track on the show that was originally filmed on him and former flame Aishwarya Rai.”
Salman also did not want any of the contestants to perform on Shah Rukh Khan’s songs. “Darsheel and Avneet performed their act to SRK’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge song. Salman appeared on the show only after the song was over,” added the source.
The actor who indulged in bit of PDA with Katrina Kaif on the sets wasn’t too happy when Kat forced him to dance with Madhuri Dixit on ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ tracks. Salman wasn’t in the mood to dance but eventually relented. Later when Kat and he were in their vanity vans, he apparently reprimanded Kat for having forced him to dance.
The actor, who appeared in his exuberant self on the show, was seen sketching in between the shots. But when the shoot got over, he picked up his notebook and left without anyone else getting a chance to see his sketches.
