Salman, 51, who worked with Sonu in ‘Dabangg,’ has been great friends with the actor since then. The actor says Salman is as happy and excited for the film as he is.
“He is very sweet. He gets very excited whenever something good happens in my life. I remember he was very happy when me, Jackie and he were sitting and chatting. He told Jackie that I’m his one of the most favourite people in the industry. and whenever something good happens in my life he feels as happy as I do.
“Those words were very special and at the same time they motivate you in life to work harder,” Sonu said.
