At the recent Umang event in Mumbai, organised to raise funds for the Mumbai Police Welfare Fund, Salman Khan shared a funny anecdote from his childhood days when he had forgotten to pay Rs 1.25 to a cycle mechanic. Salman got to know about his loan when he paid a visit to the same mechanic to get his cycle’s tyre fixed recently.
''I was wearing shorts and had no money on me. So, I told Kaka to repair it and that I would pay him later. That’s when he told me, ‘Tu bachpan mein bhi aisa hi karta tha. Tune ek baar bahut pehle cycle theek karaya tha aur aaj tak uske paise nahi diye. Tera aaj bhi Rs 1.25 udhaar hai (You used to do this in your childhood as well. Long ago, you got your cycle repaired and have not paid me for it till date. You still owe me Rs 1.25).’ I felt so embarrassed,'' Salman said.
He also mentioned that later when he returned him his money, the mechanic refused to take it.
On the work front, Salman is currently busy filming Radhe. The film will be produced by Sohail Khan and Reel Life Production Pvt. Limited under the banner of Salman Khan Films. The film will mark the third collaboration between Salman Khan and Prabhudheva after Wanted and Dabangg 3. Salman's Radhe will clash with Akshay Kumar's Laxmmi Bomb this Eid. Earlier Salman was all set to reunite with his Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for a romantic flick alongside Inshallah however the project was scrapped over difference between the actor and the filmmaker, reportedly.
The film will also star Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda, Jackie Shroff and Gautam Gulati in important roles. The film is touted to be the remake of the 2017 Korean film, The Outlaws.
He also has Kick 2 and the Hindi remake of South Korean movie Veteran in the works. The actor will also team up with Sajid Nadiadwala's for a movie titled Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.
