Salman Khan made an adorable pair with Bhagyashree back in the 90s. The duo collaborated for Maine Pyar Kiya and their sweet romance won hearts! Owing to the same, the duo were approached for a lot of collaborations. But do you know of the time when the superstar was asked to kiss the actress without consent? Below is the scoop you need.
The actress herself revealed about it all in a recent interview. Soon after the success of Maine Pyar Kiya, a lot of photographers approached the couple. Salman Khan and Bhagyashree agreed to shoot with one of the photographers. However, he wanted some allegedly ‘hot’ pictures of the duo.
The renowned photographer who has now passed away asked Salman Khan to grab the actress and smooch her. Bhagyashree revealed about it to Deccan Chronicle as she shared, “There was a very popular photographer back then, who is no more. He wanted to take some not-so-complimentary photographs of Salman and me, some sort of ‘hot’ photographs. So, he took Salman aside and told him, ‘Main jab camera set up karunga (When I set up the camera), you just catch her and smooch her.’”
But what did Salman Khan do? He simply refused. And that indeed won the actress’ heart.
“All of us were newcomers and this photographer thought he had the liberty to do something like that. Back then, smooching scenes were not prevalent. I don’t think he or Salman knew that I was standing very close by and could hear every word. For a second, I remained shocked, but just then, I heard Salman say, ‘I am not going to do anything of that sort. If you want any pose like that, you need to ask Bhagyashree.’ I really respected Salman’s response, and that’s when I realised I was among safe people,” she revealed.
Well, Sallu Bhai is at the par position for a reason. And this simply proves it!
