While Bollywood stars were busy hosting their filmy parties, one of them seems to have gone one step ahead. Salman Khan hosted Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi at his home in Mumbai after India’s win over Sri Lanka in the ICC World Cup 2011 final. The Gandhi scion, who was in the city to watch the historic match, visited Salman at his home at Galaxy Apartments in Bandra on Saturday night at around 2 am. Milind Deora, Congress MP from Mumbai, was also seen with Gandhi and his friends.
One of Rahul’s friends is a big fan of Sallu and they decided to visit him on an impulse. Rahul Gandhi is said to have dined at the Dabangg star’s place and left at around 6 am. Rahul was also in Mohali with his mother, Sonia Gandhi, for the India-Pakistan match on 30th March, 2011.
If you’re wondering about Salman hobnobbing with politicians, then it should come as a surprise because Salman has campaigned for the junior Deora in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls and they are said to be good friends.
While Salman preferred to watch the match at home, Shah Rukh Khan cheered India’s victory at home, as did the Bachchans and Akshay Kumar. Aamir Khan, Rajnikanth, Shahid Kapoor, Vivek Oberoi and Amisha Patel, were at the stadium.
