Recently at the 22nd IIFA Awards, superstar and host Salman Khan gave an emotional speech, looking back at a time during his struggling days when fellow actor Suniel Shetty gifted him something he wanted but could not afford.
Bollywood’s Bhaijaan Salman Khan recently left the audiences super happy and extremely entertained with his hosting skills at the 22nd IIFA Awards, which were held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Several clips from the event went viral on social media soon after, giving us a glimpse of all the fun. In one particular video, Salman spoke about his fellow superstar Shah Rukh Khan . He gave the latter a shout out and also talked about his upcoming films. Salman stated, “Humara Pathaan aur humara Jawan tayyiar hai.”
Well, another clip has now taken the internet by storm. This time, Salman took a trip down memory lane and remembered a time during his struggling days. He went to an expensive shop and bought a pair of stone-washed jeans. He was also eyeing a wallet but could not afford it. Actor Suniel Shetty noticed this and gifted him a stone-washed shirt along with the wallet that Salman really wanted. The superstar got teary-eyed remembering the same and gave Suniel’s son Ahan Shetty , who won the IIFA Star Debut award, a tight hug.
During the award function, Salman also expressed his gratitude for filmmaker Boney Kapoor. He thanked the producer for reviving his career back in 2009, when things were not going great for the actor, with the super hit action thriller film Wanted . Salman went on to joke that with his 2005 comedy No Entry , Boney brought his actor brother Anil Kapoor back.
Interestingly, Salman will soon reunite with Anil on-screen for the spiritual sequel of No Entry, titled No Entry Mein Entry.
